Heavenly Sweet and Spiced Lempeng Bawang

Almost every culture in the world has their own version of the quintessential pancake -there's the Korean Hotteok, the Indonesian Martabak and the Piaya from the Philippines. For the Malays, there's Lempeng Bawang. Traditionally served in Malay households for breakfast, the Lempeng Bawang is made with sliced red onions and chopped green onions. Turmeric powder is added fora bit of sunshine before being served with sugar or honey-a thoroughly delightfully sweet and savoury pancake. If you're using sugar, here's a tip -serve the pancakes piping hot and the sugar will melt into sweet syrupy goodness. Yum.
