Chinese and Vietnamese Egg Rolls and Crispy Springrolls

Today is Chinese and Vietnamese New Year 12/02/2021 so I post my favorite dish with a big Happy New Years greeting! I always love to get Egg rolls when in a Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant. However since I started making them myself I really think mine are so great and I just love to make them. You can do it yourself too!

Vietnamese Bánh Bò Nướng

This Vietnamese cake Bánh Bò Nướng is one iconic cake in Vietnamese cuisine. The name comes from the honeycomb structure which can be seen when you cut a cross section of the cake. Honeycomb cake is traditionally served warm and is perfect on its own or with a nice cup of hot tea. I love this cake and it is great if you are glutenintolerant.

BÁNH CHƯNG (BÁNH TÉT)

These Vietnamese Rice Cakes are traditional for the Lunar New Year. According to the old legends, Bánh Chưng appeared on the Hung dynasty. To make this dish in the traditional Vietnamese way I studied for a long time videos I could find with old people making them in the villages in Vietnam. I did want to make it the authentic way. To find ingredients was hard here in Stockholm when I first started making Vietnamese dishes. For this one especially finding banana leaves. However now I know every Asien Market in my area.

Bánh Xèo – Vietnamese rice pancake with salmon, avocado and mint

Vietnamese rice pancakes are easy to make and tastes wonderful. In this recipe I have adjusted the filling with a little swedish and nordic twist. I do have a traditional recipe also that you should check out with taditional vietnamese ingredients and dipping sauce that tastes wonderful.
