Banh Khot Shrimp on Flour Cake Recipe

Banh Khot came a long way since I last saw it at the restaurants. I think it's becoming a lot more attractive and appetizing. See at the very bottom of this post what Banh Khot used to look like - which isn't very appetizing at all. In July we were in Westminster, CA and it is a given that we visit Brodard restaurant at least once on our trips to Southern California. This restaurant is so busy, they have to turn people away. They are always swamp from morning to the closing hours, and the wait is usually a couple of hours or more.  Anyhow, this is a dish called Mini Vietnamese Shrimp Pancake (not sure about the word pancake for this yellow rice flour - but you can decide)
Batter: 1 bag of Banh Khot Flour or 1 bag Rice Flour with 1 tsp of Tumeric
3 cups Water
1 cup Fresh Milk or Coconut Milk
1 cup Chopped Green Onions
Put the flour in a large bowl and pour in 3 cups of water. Mix until it does not have anymore lumps. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Add in 1 cup Fresh Milk or Coconut Milk into batter and 1 cup chopped Green Onions, then mix.
Spread some oil onto the mini pancake pan. Pour in the batter. Sprinkle some Mung Bean and Dried Shrimp. See steps below.
Then put a Shrimp on top of each pancake. Put a lid on top and wait for about 3-5 Minutes or until it is cooked.
Take it out and put on a plate. Repeat until you are done.

Shrimp Preparation: Stir-fry Shrimp, put in about 1 tsp of oil in a pan and 1 tsp of minced Garlic. Stir-fry the shrimp until it is cooked.
  • 1 tsp minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 16 small Shrimps
Mung Bean and Dried Shrimp Topping: 1- Rinse Mung Bean and put into a sauce pan. Pour enough water that it covers the Mung Bean. Wait for the water to be absorbed then remove from stove and put in a small bowl.
2- Rinse your Dried Shrimp and chopped it. Stir-fry the chopped Dried Shrimp. Put 1 tsp of oil and 1 tsp of minced Garlic into pan. Add in the Dried Shrimp, stir for about 2-3 Minutes. Add in the Mung Bean and stir-fry it with the Dried Shrimp. Put in some chopped Green Onions and set it aside.
  • 1 cup Mung Bean (Soak mung bean and dried shrimp overnight or at least for 4 hrs)
  • 1/2 cup Dried Shrimp
  • 1 tsp minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Some Chopped Green Onions
Serve with Fish Sauce, Herbs, and Fresh Cucumbers.
