Turmeric Powder 1/2 teaspoon
Pork 100g
Shrimp 100g
Bean Sprouts 1 cup
Green Onion 1/4 cup
Lettuce For serving

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a mixing bowl, combine the rice flour, coconut milk, turmeric powder, and water. Whisk until you have a smooth batter. Let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2: Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a little oil and swirl to coat the pan. Pour a ladleful of the batter into the pan and immediately tilt the pan to spread the batter thinly and evenly. Cook for a few minutes until the edges start to crisp up.
  • Step 3: Spread some pork, shrimp, bean sprouts, and green onions on one half of the pancake. Cover the pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the fillings are cooked and the pancake is crispy.
  • Step 4: Fold the pancake in half to cover the fillings. Slide it onto a plate and serve with fresh lettuce, aromatic herbs, and dipping sauce.
