A few months back, I told you all about the Khanom Krok that Wirat sells just around the corner from my house. I don’t know where she has gone as I haven’t seen her for a month now. I really miss her coconut puddings. And of course our little chats which usually end up with her asking me if I wanted to be her friend/wife. Maybe she won the lottery. Maybe she has gone back to her home province. I think she said she came from Lop Buri. That is where they have the famous monkey party!
Anyway, I was walking around the market the other day when I came across another khanom krok vendor. However, this one wasn’t quite the same. In fact, it looked very different. It looked like it still had the khanom krok flour. However, the major difference was that she was using mussels. This dish is called “hoi tod khanom krok” in Thai. This is the first time I have seen this variation. Around here, mussels are mainly used in “hoi tod” which is a bit like an omlette. I will tell you how to cook that one later. I just need to take some pictures first!
