Khmer Savoury Pancake

Posted by Kroocrew on Friday, August 21, 2009, In : Cambodia 

This is very related to the Vietnamese Banh Xeo or Happy Pancake. A few years ago both in Siem Reap and along the promenade restaurants in Phnom Penh there were many restaurants with Happy Pizza signs. Many said that they were available after 10 pm with happy herbal cookies to boot. When you ordered the pizza the waiter would ask how happy you wanted your pizza? Not so apparent nowadays but probably not too hard to find.

Bei Jing Kao Ya 北京烤鸭 (Beijing Roast Duck)

Posted by Kroocrew on Thursday, August 20, 2009, In : China 
The most authentic style in Beijing is where the duck is roasted in an open oven fired with Chinese date wood. Apricot and apple wood is also used. Why? Probably because it was abundant at some stage and had little demand for structural or decorative work. The optimal fire temperatures and cooking times would have been worked out by the masters and specifically proscribed.


The duck may be used for three courses of a meal.
  • The Beijing Duck pancakes.
  • A stir fry dish with vegetables
  • Duck soup.

Happy Pancake (Banh Khoai)

Posted by Kroocrew on Wednesday, August 19, 2009, In : Vietnam 


The Vietnamese version of an open-faced omelet or crêpe, this specialty of many streetside restaurants is also called the "Happy Pancake." and probably doesn't refer to the well remembered pancakes of Phnom Penh  :) The Vietnamese name, khoai, comes from the type of pan it is cooked in. Banh xeo is the large southern version and is the basis of the Khmer Pancake referred to in this collection.
(240 ml)1 cup rice flour
(360 ml) 1-1/2 cups water
2 eggs, beaten
Small pinch of salt
