How to crochet Banh Tet amigurmi in Vietnam

3 years ago

Banh Tet (also known as Bánh Tét in Vietnamese) is a traditional cake that holds great cultural significance in South Vietnam, particularly during the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday. Today, we are excited to provide a tutorial on crocheting a Banh Tet amigurumi.

Banh Tet is a variation of the well-known Banh Chung (Square Cake) from the North, with similar ingredients such as glutinous rice, mung beans, and cooked pork. However, Banh Tet has a distinctive cylindrical shape, unlike the square or round shape of Banh Chung.

To make Banh Tet, glutinous rice is wrapped in banana leaves, forming a thick log-like cylinder. It is then filled with either banana or a mixture of mung beans and pork. The ingredients are carefully cooked for a minimum of six hours in a wood-fired pot of boiling water. When serving, the banana leaf is removed, and the cake is sliced into wheel-shaped portions.

Banh Tet showcases the importance of rice in Vietnamese culture and holds historical significance. During the Tet holiday, families gather together to celebrate the arrival of spring, and enjoying Banh Tet is an integral part of the festivities.
