I love the combination of coconut and jaggery. Stuffing the soft pancakes with it makes it such a drool worthy treat..

This definitely sounds like our eylanchi, with the only difference being that the filling doesn't have jaggery... I am so tempted looking at those pics, can sit and have all of it at one stretch!
