I got this recipe from one of my baking books. Actually I’ve never had a chance to visit Bangkok and see whether these waffles are in fact very popular as a street food there or not.
Just because I have been impressed by many other Thai foods, I didn’t hesitate to try making these waffles, or pancakes. These waffles contain typical flavours of Thai cuisine and the ingredients are used widely in many other dishes. According to the book, the dipping sauce is made from pure fish sauce, but when I tried that way, the sauce was too strong, therefore the flavor of the waffles became insignificant. So I decided to lighten the sauce by adding some water and sugar to it. And the dipping sauce became more pleasant to serve with the waffles.
