  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 cups water or as needed
  • 2 tbsp instant yeast
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp green tea powder or to taste
Spread and topping:
  • 2 to 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp salted butter or margarine
  • sweeten red bean and / or chocolate spread
  1. Combine the water, coconut milk, salt, sugar, and instant yeast in a large bowl, set aside
  2. In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder, mix well
  3. Add the egg into the water mixture, following by the flour mixture and green tea powder
  4. Let the batter rest for at least an hour
  5. Grease the cast iron pan with a little bit of butter, pour the batter in low heat, with the lid on
  6. When it's half cooked, add the sugar (topping), cook for another minute until done
  7. Once it's done, transfer immediately onto a cutting board. Spread the butter, add topping of your choice, fold the martabak, spread tiny amount of butter on top, and cut
When you ordering Martabak from street food stall you can choose one topping or combination of two until three toppings. Nutella, Toblerone, Oreo, KitKat, and any other sweet snack became popular lately as topping for Martabak. I made mine with red bean and Ovomaltine, but I skipped the condense milk because I don't want mine to be over sweet, well actually I hate condense milk.

Note: It's a large batch, made about two large Martabak, so hmm maybe you want to make just half of it by cutting all ingredients amount in two.
