These are flat griddle-cakes similar to a pancakes or crepes, white, chewy and without much flavor... Made with tapioca..rolled or folded and filled with any number of sweet or savory fillings, like crepes are. Some favorite fillings are carne , banana with sugar and cinnamon powder, Grated coconut with condensed milk, grated cheese, or simply butter. This is a popular street food of Brazil.
How to make them:
Tapioca flour ... it is available ready in the stores. It has a slightly moist texture. In case of unavailability you may try out this tip. Grind the sago pearls in a mixer or dry grinder. Add a generous pinch of salt. Sprinkle cold water over it and spread it in a wide dish. It should resemble the crumbs texture.. Air it for an hour and try using it.
Heat a non-sticky pan. Reduce the heat. Using a large strainer, sift the tapioca flour into the pan spreading it evenly in a thin layer. Use your hand to push the flour. It just takes a couple of minutes to cook. Spread the topping of your choice and fold it like a dosa.You don't even need any oil.
( I stir-fried some onion and added the chicken mince and Indian spice powders. Cooked it until done.This is the spicier version to suit our taste buds)
2. Grated Cheese Topping.
( This is the savoury topping that is usually made here... just the plain grated cheese. Add anything else to it if you like.)
3. Banana, Sugar and Cinnamon Topping:
(Slice the banana and spread on the pancake. Sprinkle cinnamon powder. Sugar is optional)
(Grate the chocolate on the pancake while making it..)
