Banh Khot/Aebleskiver Pan

I’m not going khổng lồ lie. It was hard khổng lồ get my hands on an authentic banh khot/Aebleskiver pan. You can get them easily in Vietnam và I really wished I did when I visited.

I wasn’t able khổng lồ find the pan either at my regular Vietnamese grocery store (go figure!). I finally found it in a Korean grocery store, KP International Market to be exact. It came with the lid, which is a must!

To get it online, the closest I can find that is made of the same chất lượng is this one. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a lid. Boo. If you vày get this pan through Amazon, just use whatever lid you currently have và hope that it fits.

How khổng lồ Eat Banh Khot

Eating Banh Khot requires assembly, making it a fun social experience that is often shared with families and friends.To eat Banh Khot, stack an assortment of leafy greens và herbs in the palm of one hand, place a fried banh khot in the middle và roll everything up. Dip the rolled banh khot in the dipping sauce.

Contrastly, banh khot can be one of those foods that excuse you from having conversations & socializing altogether. You are either wrapping, dipping, or chewing, making it the perfect food for an anti-social or big introvert.

In Vietnam, you can find banh khot sold in fancy restaurants or right out on the streets on rollaway carts. For me, I prefer the latter where you sit on tiny plastic stools and eat off flimsy tables with the sound of motorbikes an inch away,threatening to over your life in a blink of an eye. Now, that is a good time, my friends.
