These rolls are a hearty comfort food from the countryside of chef Duyen, from the Hanoi Cooking Centre — and a favourite for staff lunches.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 dried black fungus
3 dried chinese mushrooms
12 small cabbage leaves
300g minced pork
4 red asian shallots, diced
3 spring onion, sliced
3 teaspoons fish sauce
Tomato dipping sauce, to serve

Method

  1. Soak the mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Place a cup of ice cubes and cold water into a large bowl. Lower the cabbage leaves into the boiling water and blanch for 1 minute. Remove the leaves with tongs and place in the iced water. When the leaves are cool, remove from the water and drain off any excess. Pat dry with paper towel.
  3. Drain the mushrooms and squeeze out any excess water. Discard the stems. Thinly slice the caps, then place in a bowl with the pork, shallot, spring onion, fish sauce and a generous pinch of freshly ground black pepper. Mix together well, then divide into 12 equal portions.
  4. Place a cabbage leaf on a work surface, vein side down. Put a portion of the pork mixture on the bottom third of the leaf. Roll the bottom part of the leaf over the filling, then fold the sides in and continue rolling. Repeat with the remaining pork mixture and cabbage leaves.
  5. Place the rolls in a steamer, seam side down. Set the steamer over a saucepan of boiling water and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve warm, with the dipping sauce.
