Meow, I live far from Asian community so once in awhile my mom would order $30 for 100 balls (3/$1 but she always gives 100's) from this Lao's lady, and I always have them around and handy in my freezer for my crazy midnight craving. She made it so good, thin and crispy outer layer and just enough inside fillers, because I don't like too much of the filling.  I am so uses to her thin crust sesame balls that everytime I see thick and chewing one I would think those are bad and someone doesn't know how to made them LOLz.
 
By the way, does she shares her dough recipe? lol  :wink:
 
Thank you Ms. Zoe for the pictures. :)   The savory fillers I made today was with shallot, ground pork, black/white peppers and mung bean.  And I also rolls in a mixture of black and white sesame so it wouldn't get mix up with the regular one with just the white sesame, and it actually look quite nice with two colors sesames, it's just the dough taste bad that's all HAHAHA LOL.

Thank you in advance, but is her dough thin and crispy or chewy?   :D 
 
I'll be right back, going to do a second test run now with some tweaking of the dough, see how it will turn out this time.  :nailbiter:   :phew:

Thin, crispy, and not too chewy. She makes both sweet and savory. My friends love the savory mung bean with pork so she makes that one a lot. I'll see her for Thanksgiving so I'll ask her cus she'll be making them. She usually make them during the family gathering holidays.

It has been a week since my last post & I am craving for sweet foods lately...nah I am always craving for sweet foods :rofl:.

Here is Che Ba Mau aka Vietnamese Three Color Dessert. Why it is called by that name is because it is a colorful dessert with 3 colors. Green from the jelly, Yellow from mung bean paste & Red from red beans. Well, there is also 1 more color, White from the coconut milk. The red beans on the bottom, mung bean paste in the middle & green jelly on top with coconut milk and crushed ice. A couple of tablespoons of sugar water for sweetness. Usually, the beans, paste & jelly are flavored & they make this dessert taste even more delicious. The ingredients could be in different order & when you eat it, you mix everything all up.

I want some Banh Bo. Hopefully, I'll find some this weekend when I'm there in Milwaukee ... I should try to learn how to make it from my mom.

I tend to like less red beans and more of the green stuff. In Thai, we call it lawd chong.
 

Ms.Zoe

. : Lady Yue : .
@Mew - Is lod chong goes with red beans and others along with the green stuff? I googled & it looks like lod chong are all the green stuff.
 
I have posted one Vietnamese dessert similar to lod chong a few pages back. It is called Che Banh Lot.

I think if you live in the big cities, you will know BamBu. I think the name BamBu is inspired by the word Bamboo. The bamboos are important in Vietnamese culture. They sell many Vietnamese desserts & drinks, traditional & modern ones.
 
Here is one with Banh Lot (green stuff) on the bottom, artificial pomegranate seeds (they are made from water chestnut & tapioca flour with red food color & black jelly on top. So colorful & yummy :yummy: :spin:.

Xôi Gấc - Red sticky rice

This rich colored dessert plays an important role in Vietnamese culture; it is essential in traditional Vietnamese weddings & Lunar New Year. The naturally rich color and fragrant flavor are made from the Gac fruit ("baby jackfruit or sweet gourd").
 
It can be molded into many different shapes & forms.


 
Yummy :yummy:, It can be eaten alone or with other foods.

P.s. It is more orange than red :lol:.
