Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils. Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any "Pantry Items". Preheat your oven to 220C.

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands, red cabbage, carrots and cucumber well. Rinse your spring onions, mint, and coriander thoroughly and drain on a paper towel.

Gino's Tip

This is the traditional method of cooking jasmine rice and will result in lightly sticky fluffy outcome.

Step 1 - Fragrant Rice

Rinse your rice under cold running water in a colander until the rice runs clear. Place in a medium saucepan cover with water, place your middle finger onto the top of the rice your water should come up to the first joint. Cook on high heat until your water is bubbling just under the top level of your rice. Reduce your heat to low, cover with a lid or foil and continue cooking for 12-15 minutes until your rice is fluffy and tender.

Step 2 - Vietnamese Meatballs

Mix your mince along with your DailyDish Spice Mix and whisked egg in a large mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper. Roll into roughly 30g balls, you should end up with 6-8 meatballs for 2 servings and 12-16 meatballs for 4 servings. Place onto an oven tray, drizzle with some olive oil and pop into the oven for 8-10 minutes until cooked through. Alternately you could pan fry them for more color and caramelization for 4-5 minutes.

Step 3 - Palm Dressing and Bahn Mi Salad

Heat your soya sauce and palm sugar in a small saucepan, you can add a dash of water to facilitate cooking your sauce - break or crush your palm sugar as much as possible. Once your palm sugar has dissolved remove your pan from the heat and add a few glugs of olive oil to form a dressing. Give our large mixing bowl a quick clean and toss your julienne carrots, sliced cucumber, sliced spring onion, and shredded red cabbage along with your picked mint and coriander - use your coriander at your discretion if you aren't a lover of it. Cling film and reserve to serve.

To serve

Divide your fragrant rice amongst your servings, dress your Bahn mi salad with your palm dressing and place it on top of your rice along with your Vietnamese meatballs. Enjoy!
