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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

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.
