Vietnamese style glutinous rice with green bean filling
These days , I missed my hometown so much , keep thinking of all the food that my mum made for us during festive seasons . This dish for example . Normally we make this for Chinese new year , because of it's bright colour . It brighten the atmosphere when all the food were arranged on the table . The red colour comes from one kind of fruit , we call it " gấc " in Vietnames but I m not sure if it has English name . That fruit is a very good source of Vitamin E . Nowadays , when I live so far away from home , everytime " gấc " is in season , my dear mum will buy , prepare , frozen and send it to me . My mum always know best what we like , what we would want to have whenever we miss home . Love you , mum !
