How to make southern Vietnam sweetened donuts “Bánh Cam & Bánh Còng”
Ingredients: glutinous rice flour, rice flour, sugar, sesame seed, cooking oil, mung beans
There are 4 basic steps:
Inside the donuts: soak mung beans in the water to remove the skins; remove all skins; cook and let it cool; smash it; add sugar, vanilla + cooking oil; make balls
Outside the donuts: add flour and water, mix until it smooth; make a round shape and place prepared mixed mung bean balls; cover it and roll around around to form a ball or flatten it
Deep-fried the donuts: boil the cooking oil; add one by one uncooked donuts in at the medium heat; when it is golden, take it out
Topping the donuts: There are 2 ways to do.
- Shaking donuts with sugar: cook sugar and water to boil; add fried donuts; shake well until caramelized sugar cover entirely donuts
- Caramelizing donuts: cook sugar and a little water until golden thick; add sesame seeds; mix well; dip donuts one by one
I love Banh Cam & Banh Cong. If you try one, I’m sure you’re going getting more and more. They aren’t sweet like American donuts, different types of sweet, lighter sweet I think so…
