Recipes By Rivière
During Tet - the Vietnamese new year, every family has a tray that contains different kinds of traditional sweets to treat the guests. The common sweets are dried fruits, Sugar-coated fruits and vegetables (lotus root, lotus seed, ginger, coconut, tomato, banana,etc), dried seeds (sunflower seed, watermelon seed, pumpkin seed), nuts (pistachio, cashew) and candies (soursop candy, tamarind candy, banana candy, chocolate, Jelly beans, corn candy).
‘Tam Rice’, or broken rice, once known as the poor’s rice as the farmers used to collect the fractured rice grains that broke during the milling and sold them for cheap. However, over years, people have become rather fond of this dish and it’s now served as an everyday meal.
The basic Tam Rice includes grilled pork chops, fried egg and vegetable aliments such as pickles, tomatoes and cucumbers.
We also take steamed egg cake (chả trứng)shredded pork with pork skin (bì), meatballs (xíu mại) or braised beef (bò kho) as optional toppings.
At some places, we also fry pork fat with sliced scallions to make a sauce for extra flavor.
One of the most delectable Vietname street food known all over the world - Bánh mì - Vietnamese baguette. The classic version of this delight includes Chả lụa (Vietnamese pork bologna), jambon, pâte and other traditional compliments namely coriander, pickled carrot and daikon radish, cucumber, scallion and chilly pepper. For extra flavor, you can add soy sauce, mayonnaise, black pepper and hot sauce.
Additionally, you can replace pâté, jambon and bologna by alternative compliments to make other versions of Bánh mì. The ones that are usually used are meatballs, fish cooked with tomatoes, fried egg and fried fish cake.
Moreover, the sweet version of Bánh mì has ice cream as the filling!
