Thai Mini Pancakes ( Kanoom Krock )


These sweet rice pancakes with spring onions, are a tradition in Thailand. Normally made on a big iron plate, you can make them at home if you have a mini pancake pan like the one shown below and a lid to cover it. They are made from 2 halfs stuck together with a binding topping. The lower layer contains spring onions and salt, and the topping layer is sweeter. In future recipes we'll reuse the pan to make other desserts, so if you want to buy one you can reuse it for many things.
