Unsophisticated baking ingredients

Banh bao chao is also called “Cao Bang version salty donut” by snacking people because of the difference in the filling. Instead of using minced meat, wood ear and vermicelli like the usual savory donuts of lowland people, duck meat in Cao Bang is chosen as the filling for this famous specialty.

This is also the factor that creates a unique flavor, not mixed with any other dishes, even the traditional meat-filled doughnuts of other regions.

The ingredients for making dumplings are not too picky

In addition, an equally important ingredient that creates the delicious taste of banh bao is the golden soybeans of Quang Uyen region, with medium-sized seeds. Soak the rice and soybeans thoroughly, when the seeds are soft, grind them into a powder and mix well.

The incubation time is about 3-4 hours for the dough to rise evenly, then when fried, the cake will puff up and look very nice. Before brewing the dough, skillful people also mix grated or shredded taro to make the dough more smooth, ensuring flexibility and deliciousness.

Skillful in processing

The element that creates the unique flavor of Cao Bang banh bao is the filling made from duck meat. To have a delicious cake, after preparing it cleanly, remove all bones, duck meat is fully marinated with spices and then cut into small pieces.

Each piece of duck breast is imbued with the aroma of basil, salt and pepper, seasoning, soup powder, and main noodles… Not only that, each bakery has its own heirloom secret and recipe in the marinating process, so it’s delicious. Gourmet guests will clearly feel the rich and delicious taste of the cake.

When processing, a sufficient amount of flour will be put into a flower mold to make a pie crust, put a piece of meat on top and then spread a layer of flour to cover the filling. This step must be done quickly so that the dough does not melt. Then drop the cake pan into the frying pan with oil.

The cake will be shaken back and forth by the skillful hands of the chef until the two sides are golden brown, the puffy crust floats to the surface of the oil, then take it out. Put the cake on the griddle to dry and then serve it hot.
