Food Trip Friday: Banh Hoi Rolls
One of M-I-L’s favorite things to make. And she usually sends some over, knowing I really really like it. I can actually finish at least six of this in one sitting, but I’ve got a ready excuse that its very light and healthy..Banh Hoi Rolls.
Fusion Vietnamese and Khmer? I think so, at least the sauce is distinctly Khmer. The rolls are made of Vietnamese banh hoi – super thin rice noodles stacked together. This one’s different from vermicelli coz the noodle is soft and really chewy. Banh hoi is rolled with mint, basil, lettuce, mongo bean sprouts, boiled pork cutlets and wrapped with fresh rice wrappers. Sauce is made of lemon, garlic, chili, sugar and lots of ground peanuts.
Super yummy! I think the sauce makes all the difference. =)
