    • 4 tbsp light soy sauce
    • 4 tbsp lime juice
    • 2-4 red chillies, finely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • 50g salted, roasted peanuts, ground with a mortar and pestle

    To serve

    • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
    • 1 small bunch mint



      There are several types of mint, each with its own subtle difference in flavour and appearance.…


    1. To make the sauce, mix together the golden syrup or honey, soy sauce and lime juice until smooth. Stir in the chillies and garlic. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle in the ground peanuts. Set aside.

    2. Make the crêpes: stir the flour, eggs, coconut milk, turmeric and some seasoning together until smooth. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tsp oil. Pour in a quarter of the batter in a thin layer and swirl the pan to coat the base. Sprinkle with a quarter of the spring onions before it sets. When golden underneath, flip over and cook the other side. Remove to a plate and keep warm. Make 3 more crêpes in the same way, adding 1 tsp oil each time.

    3. Steam the asparagus for 3-5 mins. To serve, divide the asparagus and chopped egg into 4 portions. Place a bundle of asparagus on a crêpe, sprinkle with egg, then roll up – if you want, cut them in half on the diagonal. Serve with a garnish of cucumber and mint leaves, with the sauce spooned over or on the side.

    A bit difficult to turn around but very tasty, the combination of flavours was very nice.

    Awesome, made for two and had 2 each. Would go great with something yoghurt based for pudding. Served with green salad. Really, really nice.

    Loved the combination of taste! Pancakes were a bit tricky to flip over (due to batter consistency), overall- a success if you love fusion flavours.
