Banh U

I finally got around to making some Vietnamese banh u. From the first time I found the delight, I have been wanting to try my hand at it. The banana leaves I found frozen at the local Vietnamese grocer. Soaked the sweet rice for 2 days and put them together. Until I found a couple of recipes and videos on youtube.com, I had thought that they were steamed. But after wrapping the rice and bean mixture into a banana leaf I had to boil them for 5 hours.
They turned out great. The texture and taste is just what I was hoping for. Now that I know how easy they are. The next ones will be on the savory side, maybe with some Chinese sausage, a quail egg and shitake mushrooms.
