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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Steamed Tofu ~ Beancurd

'Steamed Tofu' ~ Beancurd is always a hot favourite with my family whenever we eat out ...... nutritious and for easy digestion especially with oldies around.  For more information on  'Tofu'   read here.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
