A sweet Indonesian pancake, terang bulan, also known as mee chiang kueh in Singapore and Malaysia, is a street food that can be stuffed with various fillings of your choice.
Let's start cooking!
Step 1 - Mix martabak batter
- In a large bowl, add flour, water, eggs, sugar, yeast, baking powder, baking soda, ½ tsp salt, melted butter and milk powder, and whisk until well combined.
- Set aside for 1 hour to rest.
Step 2 - Cook martabak
- In a thick non-stick frying pan on low heat, add 1 ladle of batter and spread it out evenly.
- Once it’s bubbling, sprinkle 1 tsp sugar and close with lid until fully cooked. This takes about 8 minutes. A popular and indulgent choice of toppings for martabak manis in Indonesia includes chocolate, condensed milk, butter and shredded cheese - give it a go!
