Food Trip Friday: Cooking Banh Chao

Blog Meme, Cambodian Food & Cuisine, Food Trip Friday / Friday, January 20th, 2012

Were lucky our Khmer neighbors are foodies too. They love doing cook outs during weekends and inviting us too. Last week was really interesting coz they were making Banh Chao (Banh Xeo in Vietnamese). This is a Vietnamese dish of rice flour crepes with assorted fillings. Khmers have adopted this dish and their version is one of my favorite Cambodian foods.

Khmer version has some additions like shredded coconut, flaked crabs and more assortment of greens to be eaten with it. The sauce is also slightly more ‘peanut-y’.

I took some pics while they were cooking…They usually cook this over charcoal and it smells heavenly. And it was super yummy. And I ate more than three servings lol. They must think I haven’ t eaten for weeks but it was that good.
