Kanom Krok is a special coconut pudding that's unique to Thailand, often prepared on the street-side by vendors who make it to order (see our street vendor video below). There are different minor variations, depending on the chef, and it's always prepared in a cast iron Kanom Krok pan, which we offer.
Usually the pan is placed directly over charcoal in a round clay oven same as our Toa Burner (see photos below), but the pan works fine on a gas range or electric stove-top. We recommend making sure the pan is thoroughly heated but over medium (not high) heat. Khanom krok has two layers--first the rice flour mix is cooked, followed by the sweet coconut milk topping. Too much heat will burn the bottom layer, so it might take a bit of practice to get the pan temperature just right, and a nice crispy bottom. [:]
