    awalde's Note:

    This is a basic dish that needs some preparation of the ingredients, but it is quickly prepared. In Vietnam this is served with a choice of greens, rice paper sheets, fresh mint and don't forget the dipping sauce (nuoc cham). Note: I served this with the ingredients I had on hand. Suggestions for the nuoc cham: Vietnamese Dipping Sauce--Vegan Nuoc Cham Alternative and Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Dipping Sauce). (Recipe revised after review of JustJans)

      I can see that this worked for awalde by her photo, but it didn't work for us! The batter was really thick and although I put half in each time ( I think the recipe meant me to put it all in at once) it still resulted in a thick cakey pancake nothing like the lovely light, lacy ones we had in Vietnam recently. To make matters worse, the pancakes just fell to bits when I tried to remove them from the pan.Maybe it was my coconut milk or rice flour?
