Vietnamese Rice flour Roll Recipe

The Vietnamese Rice Flour Roll, known as Banh Cuon, is a beloved dish in Vietnam. It features a delicate, thin steamed rice flour wrap enveloping a delectable combination of meat, vegetables, and spices. Making this dish at home can be an enjoyable and rewarding culinary endeavor, especially once you’ve mastered the technique.

To begin, prepare the rice flour batter by mixing Banh Cuon rice flour mix with water, oil, and a touch of salt. Set the batter aside to be used later in the recipe. For the flavorful filling, gather ingredients like ground pork or shrimp, tree ear mushrooms, white onion, shallots, green onion, and garlic. These components come together to create a rich and aromatic mixture that will be the heart of the dish.

In a heated fry pan or wok, add oil and sauté garlic, shallots, green onion, and white onion until they take on a golden hue. Once cooked, drain the mixture on a paper towel and set it aside. Using the same pan, cook the ground pork until it’s nearly done, then combine it with the fried onion mixture. Season to taste with salt and sugar, creating a flavorful filling for the rice rolls.

In a non-stick frying pan, heat oil and spoon in the rice flour batter, spreading it evenly to create a thin layer. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the batter easily releases from the pan. Place the cooked rice sheet on a plate and spoon the prepared filling in the middle, then fold the sides to encase the filling. Repeat this process until all the batter and filling have been used. Serve the Banh Cuon with cucumber, fresh herbs, Vietnamese ham, and a side of sweet Vietnamese fish sauce for a complete and satisfying meal. Enjoy the delightful flavors and textures of this authentic Vietnamese dish!
