Welcome to Hmong Food home cooking website where you will learn the basics of Hmong cooking as well as other Asian recipes, with a few of them being my own creations. We all know asian food when we see it, but what's Hmong food? Some of what we know as Hmong Food in America today are recreations of popular asian dishes that the Hmong people have learned to cook by living amongst the Lao and Thai people. They are rich in flavors and pleasing to our taste buds such as curry, Pho beef noodle soup, papaya salad and three color drink (aka Nab Vam). You will also be guided into learning actual traditional Hmong food that is made with simple flavors which reflects Hmong people lifestyle as agriculturalists. This is the first cooking website that will share many of these traditional and modern Hmong and Asian recipes that you would particularly find on a Hmong American family dinner table.
This traditional soft sweet fluffy delight makes a great healthy snack. In Laos, sugar is found in towns only. The Hmong people didn’t always add sugar since they lived in mountains secluded from the rest. Traditionally Hmong people wrapped the rice patties in banana leaves but aluminum foil works just fine. You will need a regular sized blender and a steamer.
Preparation time 25-30 minutes.
