Do you want to know how to make Bánh Ít Trần (Vietnamese Sticky Rice Dumplings) which comes from many delicious Vietnamese Food Recipes. Today, I would like to introduce its process for all you guys.
Vietnamese Sticky Rice Dumplings (Bánh Ít Trần)
It comes from Southern area with salty fillings inside of each dumpling. Now, let us start cooking one of Vietnamese Food Recipes and present for our family meal in weekend.
1 bowl sticky rice flour
½ bowl mung bean (steamed and no cover)
¼ dried shrimps
100g half lean half fat pork meat
Salt, olive oil, spring onion, pepper, purple onion, fish sauce, Maggie Seasoning Powder
Step 1: Pour sticky rice flour on bowl, add more ½ teaspoon salt and pour slowly 100ml water (at 50 degree) or using fresh milk instead. Knead well until it is soft and smooth (30 minutes). Cover it by nylon bag in 30 minutes.
Step 2: Soak dried shrimps in water, smash quickly. Clean well pork meat and slice small.
Step 3: Heat 2 teaspoons oil, add more sliced purple onion and fry until it is fragrant. Then, add sliced pork and fry in 3 – 5 minutes and add shrimps into pan.
Step 4: Pour mung bean into pan, use wood spoon to stir gently. Add more salt, fish sauce, Maggie Seasoning Powder, pepper to suit your flavor. For me, here is the important step to create the flavor for one of Vietnamese Food Recipes.
Step 5: Fry in 5 – 8 minutes until mung bean is dried, turn off heat. Wait to reduce heat and use hands to roll into circle shapes.
Step 6: Separate flour in step 1 into equal balls, press thinly and add mung bean on the center, wrap and roll carefully.
Step 7: Continue until you finished all these balls.
Step 8: Clean banana leaves, use napkin to absorb all water on leaves, arrange on steaming pot, spread a little oil on top and add one by one sticky rice balls on leaves. Steam with small heat in 15 – 20 minutes, sometimes open lib and use napkin to absorb water on lib. When they are cooked, spread a little mixture spring onion + olive oil on top of each ball.
Finally, you can serve it with dipping fish sauce and pickled carrot + white onion. It is freaking awesome flavor. How do you feel? It is really interesting. Trust me; you will now forget its flavor from the first tasting time. Hope you will satisfy with one of Vietnamese Food Recipes. Good Luck for your Cooking.
