Banh Xeo

Banh Xeo, literally "sizzling cake", named for the loud sizzling sound it makes when the rice batter is poured into the hot skillet is a Vietnamese savory fried pancake made of rice flour, water, turmeric powder, stuffed with slivers of fatty pork, shrimp, diced green onion, and bean sprouts.


Banh Xeo is a typical dish of Vietnam, made mainly from rice flour. Depending on the regions that has many different ways of processing, but the most popular is the Banh Xeo Mien Tay ( Mekong Delta People's Banh Xeo).

It is typically served with lots of greens, herbs, including lettuce, broccoli, lettuce, perilla, basil and bay leaves. Sauce made from fish sauce and added some spices such as lemon and sugar.



Vietnamese people usually eat Banh Xeo by hand, roll a little Banh Xeo with a few vegetables, dipping into the sauce and enjoy. Due to the rather big cake, a pancake you can roll into 5 -10 rolls.
