Thick martabak (Indonesian pancake)

Hm... this recipe always been my favorite since childhood because this recipe has a lot of toppings, like peanuts, sprinkles, cheese spread, and so on. I usually buy it at my Grandma's neighborhood (Pecenongan street on Central Jakarta, Indonesia). You can make it either thin or thick as you like.There are 2 kinds of martabak: the sweet (Martabak Bangka) and the egg-based one.
Egg-based artabak comes from India then Tegal citizen (Central Java) try to make martabak for their living (source: www.berita-terbaru.com). This kind of martabak filled with vegetables and meat with any variaties you can make.
The sweet martabak made in 1965, by the name of martabak San Fransisco, filled with peanuts, sugar, and chocolate fillings. I like the sweet onr and can't wait to make it myself from the starch, yet it's not as easy as I imagine. It needs time to wait for the dough and skill to cook it.
You can use non-stick pan like I do or martabak pan if you have.
I read this recipe from Nursaadah then I add some notes to help you cook better :)
