Nasipannenkoeken (Dutch-Indonesian style pancakes)
First prepare 150 grams of brown rice according to the instructions on the packaging, before draining and leaving to stand. Meanwhile rinse one small leek and slice into fine rings. Next break 3 eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk thoroughly with a fork. Now stir in 1 litre of rice milk or ordinary milk, your freshly prepared rice, 75 grams of grated Dutch cheese, the leek, a tablespoon of Conimex nasi spices and salt and pepper to taste. Next heat a tablespoon of sunflower oil or rice oil in a large pan and pour in 3 ladles of the pancake batter, leaving plenty of room between each, so that they form three individual pancakes. Lastly, fry the pancakes on both sides for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, place 3 on each plate, top with seroendeng and serve with ketjap manis, sambal and atjar tjampoer.
Pizzapannenkoeken (pizza pancakes)
