your recipes are great and easy to follow. i'd love to get a recipe for "kow soi." someday. i love it but it seems so hard to make!!

[Appon]I'll try to add it at some point in the future.


hi appon..i have question to ask..what can u make with mug bean starch?

You can also make Salim (a mung bean noodle) which is the famous dish made with that for that starch. You can even use it to make Ta Ko


khun Appon,

where can i buy a big iron plate (pan) like the one shown on your site for making the thai mini pancakes. I have seen the danish aebleskiver that has seven holes but not like the one you have. This type of pan can be used to make kanom krok too right?

I really like to own this pan like the one you have pictured on your site.

thank you so much


[Appon]The pan on my site is not a proper Kanon Krok pan, it is a Poffertjes pan I got in Europe. Try a search for 'Kanom Krok Pan', I see at least 2 online suppliers in there.
