2) Add all of the dry stuff in a bowl and form a well in the center.
3) Combine the wet ingredients (except the egg whites) in a bowl then gently fold it into the dry ingredients until the batter is thick and a little lumpy. No need to over mix the batter!
4) Use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and then fold them into the batter.
5) The batter’s ready to go! Lightly spray your iron with oil, add some batter and allow it to cook.
6) We served our pandan waffles with green tea ice cream and coconut chips.
Note: If you want to double the mix, most cans of coconut milk come in 400ml cans, and a cup is 250ml so you can just easily add a 100ml of water to make the liquid up to 2 cups.
