These days, Hanoi has isolated for whole 2 months when autumn comes. Therefore, we only stay at home and cook by ourselves, however I still have missed some special foods of Autumn such as hot pot, snail noodle, hot steamed rice cake and so on. About hot steamed rice cake, it is a signature food of Hanoi in autumn, in fact, this is very simple to cook but which has its own taste, especially eating in cool weather. In additional, the steamed rice cake of Hanoi is different to other provinces.
Here is my steam rice cake which cook by myself to condense our missing Hanoi autumn’s foods
To begin with this dish, it is made from rice and flour powder to create a mixture then steaming to merge and make it ripe. For the topping, it is including pork,fried onion, pepper, mushroom. however the specialty is soup which is stock from rib, after that I put in fish sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic by suitable recipe, of course I must cook it to be spoil. Because I like eating peanuts so I roasted adding my bowl.
Actually, cooking steamed rice cake is very simple and enjoying it in fall season which is amazing.
