Method The Pancakes:
01 In a pan add the grated jaggery or sugar and add the water. Heat to melt the sugar and create a syrup. – leave to cool.
02 In a bowl add the atta, grated coconut, crushed cardamom, salt and baking powder and stir to mix.
03 Pour in the coconut water and melted sugar to make up 250ml of liquid and mix everything with a spoon to form a batter. The batter should be the consistency of double cream and not too watery.
04 Heat a non-stick frying pan or tava (without any oil) and pour one ladle of batter into the middle. Cover with a saucepan lid and cook the batter on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Little holes will appear all over the top and it will become dry, remove the lid and flip with a spatula. Cook the other side until lightly browned.
Method Mango Sauce:
01 Peel the mango and discard the stone
02 Puree all the ingredients together. Check the sweetness and adjust if required. Push the puree through a fine sieve.
Serve with Greek yoghurt, mango sauce, fresh diced mango and strawberries and a good sprinkling of coconut.
