Origin - Vietnam
Bánh bột chiên are Vietnamese fried rice flour cakes that is a popular street food in Saigon and can be found in almost every street corner during the evening. The rice flour cakes are sticky, thick, and starchy. The cakes are cut into little rectangles and fried with lard until golden brown on the outside and soft on the inside. Whisked eggs are then poured over the cakes to bring the whole dish together and garnished with green onions and shredded green papaya. Green papayas are a big plus to the dish since the dish is quite oily, so the papaya helps balance it out.
