Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Finally, the long awaited recipe for kanom krok, the famous little Thai coconut pancakes that are one of the most popular street foods in Thailand! They’re so incredibly tasty that I seek them out every single time I go to Thailand…it’s an absolute must-have for me.

They’re made in a pan with iconic round indentations, creating a little cup of goodness that’s crisp on the outside and soft, warm and custardy on the inside. Topped with a variety of toppings from green onions, to corn, to taro, fragrant with the aroma of coconut and jasmine rice…these are easily one of my favourite snacks or desserts in Thailand that’s also easy to make if you know the right techniques!

Roti!!! Make Roti

Emily Bettencourt says:

I think it's really refreshing to see cooking videos where the person making it (even a trained chef) is like "oh, also I forgot to do this thing in the last step so I'm gonna sneak it in now." I often watch cooking videos feeling like I'll never get on that level so it's reassuring to know even people who really know what they're doing mess up sometimes!
