Poorman's Pancake

khanom tang taek - Poorman's Pancake

This is a roadside snack called khanom tang taek in Thai. It can be translated as Poorman’s Pancake. It is not really a snack because of its size. Nor is it like any pancakes that we would come across in the West. But, I suppose it is a good snack for a person who is broke because you certainly get your money’s worth. It only costs about 50 cents. The batter of the pancake has a mixture of flour and eggs and is cooked in a large deep pan. The pancake is topped with shredded coconut, sugar and sesame seeds. As you can see in the picture below, some versions are coloured green!
