Attempted these Vietnamese cake rolls (banh cuon) last night, and boy I didn’t know it was so much work. My sister and her husband used to make these to feed a whole village. Makes me appreciate them so much more. Theirs are definitely better than mine.

Actually, the whole process is not difficult, there are tips here and there to perfect it. For example, the batter, the time to cook the batter, the heating of the pan everything has to be precise. I’ll try again someday.
