Vietnamese pancake ( Bánh xèo)

September 3, 2015

Pancake, literally "sizzling cake", named for the loud sizzling sound it makes when the rice batter is poured into the hot skillet. (Khmer: Khmer pronunciation: are Vietnamese savoury fried pancakes made of rice flour, water, turmeric powder, stuffed with slivers of fatty pork, shrimp, diced green onion, and bean sprouts). Southern-style pancake contains coconut milk and certain Central regions skip the turmeric powder altogether. They are served wrapped in mustard leaf, lettuce leaves or rice paper wrappers, and stuffed with mint leaves, basil, fish leaf and/or other herbs, and dipped in a sweet and sour diluted fish sauce. In the Central region, the pancake is also dipped in a special sauce which consists of fermented soy bean and sticky rice sauce, ground pork liver, ground and toasted peanut and seasonings.
