    Rice flour that comes with Tumeric.








    One of my favorite Coconut milk to cook with.

    Direction: 

    In a blender pour in about 1/2 a cup of water and add the soaked rice or rice flour. Blend until its smooth. Add coconut milk, pinch of salt, turmeric powder and blend well. Pour in a large bowl and stir in the chopped green onions.

    On medium heat,  spread oil around the pan to prevent sticking. Add the liquid to the pan, make sure its not to thick or too thin, about a little over a half in a regular size ladle. 

    Pour in a circular pattern and cover for about 15 second to let the crepe cook, add about 2 table spoons of the filling, top it off about half a handful of bean sprouts, and cover for 1-2 min until the bottom of the crepe turns golden brown. 

    Fold the crepe and serve it with a side of your favorite veggies along side the sweet and sour dipping sauce. The sauce can be used as a vinaigrette, just place it in a bowl and add everything together. Top it off with roasted crushed peanuts and enjoy.
