Thai fried mussels (Hoi Tod)

Hoi Tod, crispy batter thai fried mussels or oyster is another street food you can find everywhere in Bangkok.   It is similar to seafood omelette or pancake.  You can use local mussels, frozen NZ mussels or oyster and any seafood you prefer.

I myself prefer the old style Hoi Tod which batter is crispy and a bit chewy.  Here is my recipes…..
