DIRECTIONS

  • Watch the videos metioned in the recipe description.
  • In a bowl, combine water, egg, condensed milk, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Set aside.
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl, and form a crater in the sifted flour. Pour the water/egg mixture into the flour, and mix well. Add melted butter.
  • Knead this until the bowl is clean and you have a nice ball of dough. Lightly coat the dough ball with vegetable oil (we like canola oil). Let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • Next, knead your dough a bit more, and form it into several balls (dough for 8 small pancakes of 3 to 3 inches). Coat them with vegetable oil.
  • Roll a ball of dough flat with a rolling pin, then cut from center out to edge. Roll it up. Push it in with your finger. Repeat this a few times.
  • Now roll and stretch the dough ball into a very flat square sheet (8 to 8 inches), for this step coat it with a bit more oil, pick it up and place it on a hot (highest setting) pancake griddle that has melted margarine on it. You can use a skillet also, but we found that our electric pancake griddle works great. Note. this step is not easy, you will need some exercice to perform this step perfectly.
  • Add chopped banana or your favorite filling in the middle. Wrap horizontally one side first, then opposite side. Then vertically one end, then opposite to that end and make a purse covering the filling. Flip and fry for another 30 seconds. It took about 1 minute to finish cooking.
  • Cut into 9 pieces and if you like top with sugar or with sweetened condensed milk.
  • Enjoy this recipe! It's a lot of fun, and very tasty.
  • Note: I had cherries at home. I used them for filling using some cornstarch to make the juice thicker.
