Bac Me lam rice

 

 

The way to make this kind of lam rice is very simple. Glutinous rice is cleaned and filtered, mixed with salt and then put on a tube that is made of bamboo, along with water from a mineral stream. The cooking tube has one solid end and another end sealed by banana or phrynium leaves.  After this preparation, the tube is roasted on the fire or burning coal for about an hour, until the tasty smell of glutinous rice spreads widely over the pot. To eat this rice, the outer burned cover of the tube is removed with a knife to reveal the inner white cover, and after that, the white cover is also removed. Now the lam rice has a tube shape with a light membrane of bamboo around which adds a unique taste to the rice.
