Khanom Krog

Khanom krog are an hors d'oeuvre made of rice flour, onions, coconut meat and various other ingredients. They're light and delicious and are baked on a specially made Baking Tray with round indentations on the surface. It is usually made of local pottery and coals or charcoal is burned in the bottom area to heat the baking plate. Many northern Thais enjoy the simple Khanom Krog without added condiments or snack items, but just as often this snack is topped with shrimp, egg pudding, pumpkin or other sweet or salty snacks to add to both the decoration and the taste. This is a typical way for the Khanom Krog to be served in the home when visitors come. Many Thai women engage in the baking and decoration of Khanom Krog in the same way that western women enjoy baking cookies for visitors. There is not much comparison in taste, but the idea is similar.
