Making the Pancakes:

Before making the pancake, strain the batter to avoid any lumps. This will give smooth pancakes.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat for about 1 minute & coat it with a drop of cooking oil.

Once it is hot, spoon some batter on it & swirl the pan to distribute it evenly & to make a round shape.

Cook until lightly brown.

Remove to a plate.

Immediately spread about a spoon of filling onto cooked pan cake.

Then roll it.

Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve hot & enjoy!!
