Steamed Rice Cakes With Shrimp And Pork Rinds ( Bánh Bèo )

Steamed Rice Cakes With Shrimp And Pork Rinds (Bánh Bèo)

Recipe source :  Vietnamesefood.com

I find it very interesting and highly exciting as I participated in the Asian Food Fest every month. Their theme for this month is Indochina. Once again I surfed the internet and read up books to widen my horizon and to learn more about the cuisines and food cultures of Indochina. As I surfed, Vietnamese food caught my attention and so I am going to try out Vietnamese food for this month. 

It is a delight and it gives me great satisfaction each time I am able to cook the food successfully as guided by the recipes. Sometimes I have to make adjustment to suit my individual preference and sometimes it is because of unavailability of the specified ingredients.

It brings me joy that I have unwittingly started on a fantastic journey into the culinary realm of foreign cultures. I shall continue my exploration to gain further insights and knowledge as I find it very rewarding. It enriches my culinary experience as I absorb and feed my basic senses to enjoy the good food and good taste of other cuisines.

20g wheat flour
500ml water

1.  Mix all the ingredients together and allow to stand for 3 to 4 hours.
2.  Add in salt just before steaming. Stir to mix well.
3.  Spoon batter into small bowls and steam over high heat for about 5 minutes until cooked.
