Bánh giầy

Bánh giầy (it can also be written as[1][2] written as bánh dầy or bánh dày) is a Vietnamese traditional cake. Bánh giầy is a white, flat, and round glutinous rice cake. They are wrapped in cut pieces of banana leaves. They are usually served with a type of Vietnamese sausage chả lụa.[3] Bán giầy can be fried to a thin crispy golden crust or be eaten with chả lụa. Another variation is called "bánh giầy đậu", where ground boiled mung bean (đậu xanh) - salted or sweetened - is stuffed inside. It is very similar to another Vietnamese glutinous rice cake known as Bánh chưng.
