Vietnamese Rolls



I was doing a stock take of my pantry when a round pack of 'something' caught my eye.  Goodness, I had completely forgotten all about the pack of Vietnamese rice paper that I brought back from my previous trip to Perth in December.   A quick check on the date ..... Best before 30 th September 2013, saved!

















Amongst the food from the Asean countries, Vietnamese food is my favourite as I find it to be light and less oil.  There's no recipe for these yummy, chewy rolls. Wrap them up with whatever you fancy and concot your own desired sauce to dip in.  I made a chilli sauce as well as a peanut butter sauce.

Ingredients

Rice vermicelli - soaked in water to soften, cooked in boiling water, water drained off
Prawns - steamed and sliced into 2
Cucumber - discard the seeds and cut into strips
Carrot - peeled and cut into strips
Lettuce

Peanut butter sauce
1 Tbsp lime juice, 1 Tbsp sugar  (mix and stir till sugar dissolved)
1 Tbsp sesame oil, 1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp light soya sauce,  1.1/2 Tbsp water  (or more)
Lightly toasted sesame seeds

Chilli sauce
2 tsp lime juice,  2 tsp sugar (mix and stir till sugar dissolved)
3 tsp chilli sauce, 1.1/2 Tbsp water (or more)
Lightly toasted sesame seeds

    1. I did ask them about the rice paper. They said it's imported from Vietnam and not available in Ipoh. Their rice paper is much smaller so you can't really wrap neatly. I like their sauce too, perhaps it had Hoisin sauce added in.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
