Ban Chien Kueh (Chinese Pancakes with Ground Peanuts, sugar and Margarine)

One wok of Ban Chien Kuih, cut into 6 pcs. Only 5 pcs left when I took this picture because my daughter already ate one piece.
There are many versions of Ban Chien Kueh (Penang Hokkien name). One of my favourite stall is located in Kepong Baru Morning Wet Market. The owner of the stall cooks around 5 woks of ban chien kueh at one go and it takes a great skill to make sure all are cooked well. Her daughter will take order and cut the Ban Chien Kueh for customers. I buy the BCK from this stall because it comes with a generous amount of ground peanuts and the taste is good. A wok cost RM3.20. There are two types available; thin crispy crusts or thick non crispy crust. I normally buy the latter. Location of the Ban Chien Kueh Stall (Chinese Pancakes)
