Banh Beo (Steamed Rice Cakes)




My mom feels like eating banh beo knot. So as her good daughter I made her some. The brown colored rice cake is sweet and the white is regular. This was served with fish sauce and coconut milk. The cakes are made out rice flour, tapioca starch, water, salt, and oil. Topping is the cooked mung bean with scallions. This is very much like the one in Vietnam....yummy! My mom ate it every morning for breakfast.

To make the Vietnamese fish sauce. It depends on how much you want to make. Chop 2 chillies, 3 pieces of garlic, squeeze in 1/2 a lemon, 3-4 tablespoon sugar. Add 1/2 cup of water to the mixture and stir well. Then add in the about 3 tablespoon fish sauce. Stir and taste. If not enough taste then add in more fish sauce. If not sweet enough then add in more sugar or lemon if not sour enough.
