In many countries in Asia it is now Mango season. In countries like Thailand and Vietnam a special dessert is the sure sign of the spring and summer, “Mango sticky rice”. It is usually eaten in the peak Mango season, the months of April and May. The main ingredients needed are sticky rice (glutinous rice), canned or fresh coconut milk, salt, palm sugar and mangoes. Give it a try to make this popular dessert at home!
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!
I love this light and fresh ice cream with coconutmilk, coconutflakes, and mint. It tastes heavenly.
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.
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 is basically a crêpe or pancake made from a basic blend of rice flour, turmeric, and coconut cream, along with other ingredients. Bánh xèo is food meant to be eaten with your hands. You’ll always find a big plate of greens with a mix of herbs to go with it.
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.
