  1. To make the batter, combine the rice flour, cornflour, turmeric and a sprinkle of salt in a large bowl. Whisk in coconut milk, water and spring onions. Set aside for 30 minutes. 

  2. For the dipping sauce, whisk together finely chopped bird’s eye chilli, garlic, fish sauce, water, sugar and lime juice.  

  3. Heat a 22cm non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a small amount of oil, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Pour in ½ cup batter, swirling the pan to coat the bottom evenly. Scatter some cooked chicken, bean sprouts and carrot over half of the pancake. Cook for about 2 - 3 minutes, until bean sprouts have softened. Fold the pancake over to cover the filling, then slide onto a serving plate to keep warm. Repeat process with remaining batter and filling. To serve, wrap the Crispy Pancakes in lettuce leaves with some mint and dip it into the sauce.
