Malay confinement rules can be a real pain in the belly when it comes to food. For breakfast, I would only usually have 2 pieces of toast and a mug of hot cocoa or Milo. That’s it.

One of my favorite chef once said, “There’s only 2 type of people when it comes to fried food, whether you LOVE fried food or you won’t admit you love them!” Hehe! it’s true! Well anyways, when you are halfway in your 44days of your confinement, it’s ok to have a bit of oil in your meals. This pancake like dish called Apam Lenggang is one of it. Pretty popular among the Indians and Northerners. As coconut milk is in it, you should limit the intake though. Here’s how you make them.Enjoy!

1 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup of rice flour
2 teaspoon of yeast
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of coconut milk
Mix A in a bowl and let it rest for at least 2-3 hours or overnight ( for tomorrow breakfast).
When you’re about to make it, add in B in A and mix well.
Heat a non stick pan and brush some oil on it. The rest of the method:
