CNY BREAKFAST MENU - BANH XEO / VIETNAMESE CREPES



Gong Xi...Gong Xi... I believe everyone is having a great time today. It's CNY, it's a long holiday...and it's makan...makan...So let's start the day with Banh Xeo aka Vietnamese Sizzling Savoury Crepes. Have you tried this before?...It's delicious and a popular street snack in Vietnam, especially the south. The name means "sound crepe," and it indicates the sound the batter makes when it hits the hot skillet. The shrimp-studded crepe is rolled up in a leaf of lettuce and dipped in a flavorful lime-scented sauce before it gets popped in your mouth. This was once of the most delicious things I ate in all my time in Vietnam.

A banh xeo can be eaten with knife and fork, but it's best enjoyed as a wrap within a wrap by serving it with lettuce leaves and herbs (any combination of basil, mint, cilantro or the Vietnamese herb called rau ram, which tastes like spicy cilantro with lemon). Cut a small piece of banh xeo, wrap it in lettuce with a few herb leaves, and dip it into nuoc cham, a .

It looks suspiciously like a big omelet,  its batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour and doesn't contain a single egg. The most common filling for banh xeo is onions, bean sprouts, shrimp, mushrooms and meat. It's simple to make..just like making the ordinary crepes.. with the raw vegetables as the fillings and serve with the Vietnamese Dipping Sauce.
DuA tiga hari ini blog agak sepi...semua sedang mengambil kesempatan cuti CNY untuk beriadah dan balik kampung. Seperti biasa saya dan anak-anak tidak ada apa-apa plan cuma akan mengambil kesempatan cuti ini Berjalan rumah kawan-kawan dan mencari bahan bacaan untuk anak-anak. Mana taknya campur semua anak-anak yang sedang menuntut di IPTA saya dapat baucer berjumlah RM600 yang hendak dibelanjakan untuk membeli buku dan peralatan sekolah. So cuti ini saya fokus pada ilmiah.

Breakfast pagi ini saya buat simple aje..sebab tengah hari..biasalah cuti mesti masak special sedikit....pagi ini saya buat menu alas perut aje..saya buat lempeng Vietnam. Lempeng ini adalah jenis yang ada inti...macam kuih dadar berlauk kita..tetapi kulitnya diperbuat daripada tepung beras dan intinya menggunakan sayur-sayuran mentah seperti taugeh, udang dan daun ketumbar..cukup sedap dicicah bersama sos Vietnam.

Selamat menjamu Selera dan Selamat Bercuti
