  • Bamboo-Steamed Sticky Rice Recipe

    Vietnamese sticky rice, or glutinous rice, called xoi nep, required a long soak in water before being cooked in bamboo steamer. It is used for savoury and sweet rice cakes, such as banh chung and Hue com sen. It is enjoyed as a sweet, filling snack with sugar and coconut milk and, as it is fairly bulky, it is also served with dipping sauces, light dishes and vegetarian meals.

  • Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

    This idea of stir-frying rice with other ingredients originated in China and has made its way throughout Asia. Generally, a serving of fried rice with all the trimmings makes a filling meal. This version is very light and delicate. Note that using cold rice works best for stir-frying because the grains separate easily.
