Thai One-Bite Paan Wraps (Miang Kham)

Thai One-Bite Paan Wraps

Thai One-Bite Paan Wraps (Miang Kham) — this sweet, salty, and spicy appetizer is an explosion of flavors wrapped in a betel leaf! With toasted coconut, lime, ginger, peanuts, Thai chili, shallots, crispy tofu, and a sweet sauce, there’s nothing quite as bright and colorful as this vegetarian Miang Kham!

Enjoyed roadside around Thailand and Laos, Miang Kham are usually enjoyed with some protein, so we’ve used crispy tofu instead. Each is meant to be eaten in one bite — just add a spoonful of each topping, a drizzle of the sauce, and you’ll be transported to the streets of Thailand!
