I've never make these pancakes and I don't have the recipe for it either. I cheated since I have the puff pastry in my freezer and some left over lotus paste. I thought what can I do with it that is fast and with less hassle. Hmm..Shanghai Pancake came to mind. How hard can it be right, in making these pancakes? Of course, since I cheated, it's very easy indeed...I just need to pan fry it and voila, it's done! Here's how I cheated...as long as you have the puff pastry and lotus paste, you are good to go.
Take a sheet of puff pastry, give a generous slab of lotus paste on first half of the puff sheet, then fold the other half over it. Press all sides to ensure it's 'secured' and shallow pan fry it to golden perfection. While it's hot, cut it into strips of rectangles and serve immediately with a cup of hot tea! Wonderful tea-time snack for anyone! Lovely.
I foresee that in near future, I shall substitute the lotus paste with kaya (local coconut egg jam). Yumzz.. can almost taste it already.
