Cha Gio with Nuoc Cham

Out of Rick Steins Far Eastern Odyssey, luckily we have an asian supermarket within 30 minutes drive where you can buy Banh Trang, the Vietnamese Rice Flour Pancakes. This dish is really easy to make and tastes fantastic.

On the journey to creating this, I had to pop into a well known super store (horses etc.).  If you look on the lower shelves and in the ‘specialist’ sections you can find some bargins.  Jaggery (Palm Sugar), Rice Vinegar and Nam Pla (fish sauce).  The shop branded versions were 2-3 times the price!
