170/18: Banh Xeo
Seventh cook from Root and Leaf by Rich Harris, this time it was Banh Xeo.
First off I made the batter with rice flour, cornflour, turmeric, sat, coconut milk and water. The turmeric was from Steenbergs and has a lovely colour and smell to it – £2.60 for 50g.
With the batter in the fridge I made the Nuoc Cham sauce: lime juice, water, fish sauce (Rich has a recipe for no-fish sauce but I forgot to get brown miso paste so just used standard fish sauce), sugar, Thai red chilli and garlic.
Next it was time for the pancake fillings: Onion, Portobello mushrooms, dark soy sauce, beansprouts, spring onions, crushed roasted peanuts, coriander, mint leaves, Thai basil leaves and Romaine lettuce leaves.
There are a lack of cooking photos as cooking the pancakes was a very quick process and quite difficult! They were cooked in a pancake pan on the Napoleon Pro 22 over Resilient Woodlands Mixed Hardwood charcoal.
Time to Eat:
Pancake topped with the mushroom and onion mixture, beansprouts, spring onion, peanuts and the Nuoc Cham sauce.
Another really tasty dish from this book, the first one was eaten quickly and I had to have another one straight after! Good combination of flavours and the Nuoc Cham sauce added a nice dimension too.
The pancakes were pretty hard to cook, similar to the dosa’s from a previous cook. I just need some practice to improve my skills! Less oil seems to help and a low sided pan.
