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

  8. I really like Vietnamese rolls and haven't eaten them for quite some time. Do you know where to buy the rice paper? I can't seem to find at the supermarket in KL or PJ.

    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.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
