Buckwheat crepes with eggs recipe (galettes de ble noir a l’oeufs)
- Cuisine: French
- Makes 8
Ingredients150g (1 cup) buckwheat flour
10 eggs, 2 beaten, 8 whole
125ml (½ cup) milk
Vegetable oil, to grease
Green salad, to serve
PreparationPlace flour and ½ tsp salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in beaten eggs and milk, and whisk until smooth. Add 250ml water and whisk until smooth; the batter should be thin enough to just coat your finger; add more water if necessary. Cover with plastic wrap and stand for 30 minutes.
Heat a lightly greased heavy-based pan or crêpe pan over medium heat. Pour in 60ml batter, swirling pan to coat base. Crack an egg into the centre and cook for 3 minutes until egg is just set, or until cooked to your liking. Fold in sides of the crêpe so that the egg is partly exposed. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter and eggs. Serve with a green salad.

To achieve the best results when making kebabs, 'beat' the minced meat mixture well with your hand until it is a smooth paste. This not only combines the ingredients but also makes it easier to shape and stops them falling apart.
Dragon fruit (thanh long tuoi) comes in two varieties - one with bright red flesh and the other white, both have tiny black seeds. Although it can be bland in flavour it makes a striking addition to a fruit platter.
