The Toon leaf is cultivated extensively in Eastern Asian countries and for good reason. The leaves and shoots of this fragrant plant is found in wet markets during the spring and summer months and have a beautiful flavour reminiscent of onion or garlic. In addition to being the main seasoning of these lovely pancakes, Chinese Toon is used throughout Chinese Traditional Medicine to alleviate digestion problems.
Widely considered an Asian comfort food, Toon Pancakes are found in hawker stalls and tea houses everywhere.
These pancakes are fluffy and ready in several minutes on a heated stove, with or without oil and are perfect eaten alone or used as a wrap.
