A taste immediately sends back to those good old days of childhood, when things were simple and only a few fried bananas on a rainy day could put a big smile on your face. Crisp on the outside but warm and soft on the inside: all the elements complement each other perfectly. Chuoi chien is usually made from a special variety of small stubborn bananas called chuoi su or chuoi xiem in Vietnam, which are much more fragrant and sweet than regular bananas. The secret to getting the most crisp outer crust is double frying. When the banana fryer begins to brown, remove and quickly put it in the blender and chill it again. Serve the dish when it is still hot to keep it crispy.
Where to find the best chuoi chien in Saigon Chuoi Chien - De Tham, 40 De Tham, Cau Ong Lanh Ward, District 1 Banh Cay Chuoi Chien, 81 Tran Quoc Thao, District 3 Chuoi Chien Gion, 100/27 Tran Hung Dao, Ward Pham Ngu Lao, District 1 Khoai Lang Chien (french fries) khoai-lang-chien Photo: Cooky.vn On that day, my mom would do chho lang khoai for the whole family after the kids played all day on the streets. This crunchy homemade dessert was forever my favorite snack for its texture. You can see that it is quite similar to chuoi chien: fried banana; but the sweet potato is less softened, so it tastes better for those who prefer a creamy, solid piece of fried snack. Usually, people will fry an entire banana for a serving, but the khoai tongue is cut into smaller pieces so it looks a lot like fries. Some places even grind the sweet potato to mix directly with the flour, and shape it into ball shapes, which is more fun to eat!
It's also not very sweet like banana, so there are many variations of salty recipes. This modern version of the dish was more popular than ever, which actually took Vietnam by storm a few years back. After frying the sweet potato covered with flour, the preparer will sprinkle some cheese powder on top to make the outer crust tastier. This recipe is not exactly a dessert, but it is still worth trying as a light meal for your day.
You will see many vendors selling this along with fried banana and other Vietnamese fries. If you find one, try the whole package with one of them.
