  Khanom Chan, would be rightly translated as the 'layered sweet' in English. The list of popular Thai food dishes is not all about spice and heat, mouth watering delicacies like the khanom chan sweet desserts are also eaten as a wholesome snack. The layered sweet goes deep into the traditions of ancient Thailand, authentic Thai cooks look to make this dessert with nine layers - the number 9 has special importance to Thais. The ingredients used to make khanom chan are quite simple and easily available - a combination of tapioca flour and rice flour forms the base of the sweet dish. If you wish to get the true taste of khanom chan like it was made centuries ago, the coloring agent will need to be naturally derived - juice from the pandan leaves is used for this purpose. When you make this Thai food dish, work with the number of layers that is convenient for you and get on to finer details after you have gained more experience. The pandan leaves juice extract imparts both color and flavor to the khanom chan, Jasmine flower essence is another ingredient on the list and though vanilla essence might serve the purpose, the two do not yield the same smell. You will need a device to steam your layered sweet as that is the way in which the khanom chan batter is cooked. Two slightly different batters are poured in layer after layer carefully ensuring that, the previous layer is cooked before the next layer is poured in. You might come across khanom chan that flashes many colorful layers, ideally each color should be extracted from a natural source but, most vendors use artificial food colors these days.
