Vietnam's Most Delicious Desserts | Vietnamese Food Lovers

Vietnam's Most Delicious Desserts | Vietnamese Food Lovers


Vietnamese Food Lovers

No good meal is complete without something sweet to finish it off. Luckily, in Vietnam, there are a number of desserts to choose from — many with an interesting history and tradition attached. Similarly to the savoury meals made in Vietnam, the versatile rice grain makes a regular appearance. Unlike Western desserts, which use plenty of wheat flour and butter to make the likes of cakes and biscuits, the Vietnamese opt for glutinous rice and rice flour. To fill these sweets delights, cooks in Vietnam use plenty of coconut, fruits, beans and nuts — ingredients that are much more readily available than the dairy products found in the West such as chocolate or cream. Here are some of the country’s favourites, with links to the recipes included. Chè chuối Balance of texture is a particularly important factor to building the perfect dessert in Vietnam, demonstrated through the popular sweet soup, chè, which comes in many forms. One version, known as chè chuối, balances soft banana — cooked and served in coconut milk — with slightly chewy sago pearls (a starch extracted from the spongy centre of tropical sago palm stems) and crunchy nuts.
