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.
Bun dau mam tom (fried tofu, shrimp paste, and noodles) is one of signature foods in Hanoi. Any visitors must try this dish when coming to our capital, we could find it at the hold of the wall to sell this one every streets, or also vendors sit a corner of any roads.
The special one is shrimp paste which mainly made from shrimp or moi (it is a kind of tiny shrimp) and salt. After the nature fermented processing, this sauce is created a typical favor and color. There are 3 shrimp paste types: thick, paste and liquid which are based on the rate of salt and the sun exposure. When eating, we should add more lemon, chili to push up its smell.
Besides main foods, fried tofu, shrimp paste, noodles, people could add more some other foods such as boiled shoulder pork, pork roll, fried pork’s guts…
For tofu, it is fried all 6 sides however its inside still white and soft, and bean tasting. After deep it into shrimp paste bowl, it’s absolutely mouthwatering.
In case, you can’t eat shrimp paste, you could change to fish sauce. Anyway shrimp paste is quite strong smell and not suitable for people don’t like that one.
If you ask any local people in Hanoi about the signature foods, certainly, they will tell you “bun dau mam tom” which is a special one to other areas.
