Banh Xeo with my Ba Ngoai (Traditional Vietnamese Pancake)

Banh Xeo with my Ba Ngoai (Traditional Vietnamese Pancake)


So, with shrimp we buy the small kind. When we get home, we cut the head and tail off. We then wash the shrimp with a bit of salt, so it doesn’t smell fishy. Now, put in the rice flour Put in 1 tbsp of Turmeric Powder. If you want the pancake to be crispy, put in Soda water. About 2 Litres. Now, we’re putting in a can of Coconut Cream. 400ml Now, we put in chopped shallots. So, the batter is flavoursome and pretty. Now, we place a bit of pork and oil in a pan and sautee it till it cooks evenly. And then add the shrimp. Yeah, and then afterwards we add in our onion. Continue to sautee until evenly cooked. Once even, stir the batter so its even and then pour it in the pan. Next, put in your bean sprouts. Okay Grandma, how do we do this? With Banh Xeo, we eat it with herbs. With mustard greens, we break the hard bits to make it easier to eat. If you can eat it, then just leave it, if you can’t, take the hard bit off. Tear a piece of Banh Xeo Place it on top and roll it with the herbs. Dip it in some Nuoc Mam. SO DELICIOUS!

  1. Tiana… u and your grandma are so adorable!! my family is huge and come in a long line of picky eaters!! I've tried out your ba ngoais recipe for banh xeo, got thumbs up from everyone!! And even had banh xeo twice in the last week!! Thanks to ba ngoai, my hubby hates banh xeo but I think it converted him!! Tell ba ngoai cam on and can you please do more cooking with her!! Thanks tiana

  2. I haven't made this for years, you make it just like my Vietnamese sister-in-law. Thanks for the great refresher course. I would love to see how your grandma makes Pho!

  3. Banh Xeo is native like most Vietnamese dish not from French influence. Every Asian country has their own fried pancake. Dosa from Southern Asia look near identical to French crepe but is much older.

    The French also claim they first invented Pho even though the seasoning 5 spices are native to Asia.

    The french take credit for many things that isn't their: French fries, French vanilla, French crepe, French coffee, French chocolate & French toast…

  4. i eat this all my life but your bahn xeo is something else- super delish. even my hubby who doesn't really like bahn xeo now loves this. your grandma's recipe is definitely the best! tq

  5. Thank you for sharing, Tiana. I wonder why your beautiful Ba Ngoai used the Southern Vietnamese accent to talk to the audiences, but she used Hue accent to talk to you. 😉

  6. Probably the best looking ban xeo I have seen on youtube! Your ba ngoai was too freakin' cute! I loved her demonstrating how to eat it at the end as a lot of people don't know how to eat it properly. Thanks for sharing!
