Vietnamese Banh Hoi


These woven intricate bundles of rice vermicelli called Banh Hoi resemble our local 'string hoppers' or 'putu mayam', a South Indian snack of steamed rice flour noodles and eaten with a sweetened topping of grated coconut and palm sugar (gula melaka).   Vietnamese Banh Hoi can be rolled and served with a variety of meat and in my case I served them with pan-fried chicken, sauteed spring onions, salad and a dipping sauce.

  • Ingredients
  • 200 gm chicken breast
  • 8 pieces of dried Banh Hoi, prepared according to their instructions @ the back of the packet

  • lime juice from 6 calamansi
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 2 tsp peanut butter dissolved with 1 Tbsp hot water

Method
  1. Season the chicken breast with some salt, sugar, light and dark soya sauce.
  2. Heat up some oil and pan fry chicken till cooked.
  3. Sautee chopped spring onions with oil.
  4. Serve Banh Hoi with salad, sauteed spring onions and chicken.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
