Ahh Indian pancakes are the best. Must be the yeast and the eggs giving it that special taste. Cooked in small bowl shaped metal pans over a hot charcoal stove, it has a special shape. Puffy and spongy in the middle and crispy at the edges.
A video of how the Apoms are being made.
n Malaysia and Singapore, a pancake-like snack known as Apom Balik (in Malay) or Mee Chian Kuih（面煎粿 in Chinese). The Chinese version is made with a filling, traditionally ground peanut with sugar, sweetened coconut, or red bean paste, and increasingly also with cheese, kaya (egg jam or coconut cream custard), blueberry or chocolate. There are other interesting variations, such as those made with soya bean milk replacing egg and water. The malay version (Apom Balik) frequently has sweet corn and condensed milk as filling.
