Alle Belle – Goan Pancakes stuffed with Coconut

Alle Belle – The name sounds interesting right? Have you ever heard of this dish? For those not,keep reading to know more about this lovely dish.

Alle Belle – For Recipe Swap

Alle Belle is a traditional Goan dish which is had as a tea time snack. It is a pancake stuffed with Coconut and Jaggery. Similar to Kerala, I observed Goans too use lots of Coconuts in their dish. Not only that, this Alle Belle is more similar to another Kerala dish called Mutta Paalada. I have posted a version of that in my this post. I have used Gluten free flour in that post. You can use that flour to make these Alle Belle. You can order the Gluten free flour here.

The reason I made these delicious dish now is because of our beautiful FB group who started a theme called Recipe Swap. In that group, each month they will pair the participants with other fellow blogger. We have to recreate one of their dish. How interesting is it,right? It’s a chance for us to recreate the dishes we have bookmarked from our fellow bloggers and didn’t find time to try them. This time I was paired with a beautiful, talented blogger Archana of The Mad Scientist Kitchen. You can see lots of amazing recipes in her blog. Do hop into her blog to see for yourself.

How did I make Alle Belle

The main ingredients to make this Alle Belle is divided into two.

  1. For the Batter – Flour,Salt,Baking powder,Milk,eggs
  2. For the stuffing – Grated Coconut,Palm Jaggery,Salt.

In the original recipe,she used Palm Jaggery. But I used normal ones as I didn’t have any Palm Jaggery. First start by making stuffing by cooking grated coconut,jaggery and a pinch of salt till it comes together to a mass. I have used Jaggery syrup as I already had it. Prepare the batter using all the ingredients listed. the batter should be thin and not like the normal pancake batter. In a pan, grease some butter,pour the batter and swirl it. I have used this pan which I love the most.Cook it both sides and place a tsp of filling and close it. Serve warm with tea.
