Vietnamese Pho is often called the ‘pho vallo’ of the country.
But the Vietnamese have a different way of eating the dish.
It’s a classic dish of pho made with rice, and the soup itself is a bit more complex.
The dish has long been a staple of Vietnam’s cuisine, but has since been overtaken by the popularity of the curry style of eating in the US and elsewhere.
Now, with pho-based dishes becoming more popular in the country, many people are experimenting with making their own versions.
Here’s a guide to making your own pho.
Ingredients 2 cups rice (or another type of rice) 1 onion, finely chopped 1-2 garlic cloves, minced 1-3 teaspoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional) Salt to taste (to taste) Method 1.
Put the rice and onion in a bowl, cover with water, and let sit for 15 minutes.
Add the garlic and soy sauce, chili powder, salt and a little bit of pepper.
Cook for 10 minutes until the rice is soft and the onion is soft.
(It will take about 10 minutes for all of the rice to cook.)
Once the rice has cooked, add the onion, garlic and sauce to the bowl.
Stir to combine.
Next, pour the rice mixture into a pot with a lid.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until it has absorbed the liquid.
(Don’t boil the rice too long; the rice can start to stick to the lid, so be careful not to let the lid touch the rice.)
Add in the rice vinegar, soy sauce and chili powder.
Stir until it’s absorbed.
While the rice simmers, prepare the soup.
Put 1 tablespoon of the sauce in a soup pot.
Add 1/2 cup of the noodles and 1/4 cup of broth.
Cook the noodles for 1 minute, then add in the remaining broth.
Pour in the rest of the broth and stir.
(This should keep the soup from sticking to the noodles.)
Remove from heat and let the soup cool down.
Serve the pho hot with a bowl of rice.
Notes For the soup: 1.
The broth is usually made with water instead of rice, but if you like, you can also add rice to the broth to make it more creamy.
For the rice, the best way to use up the broth is to simmer the rice in water for about 10-15 minutes before adding it to the soup pot to make the rice less dense.
3: For a more authentic Pho Vallo, try to make your own version using dried noodles, instead of the dried rice.
If you want to use your own rice instead of dried, try adding in a little more soy sauce.
5: For the broth, the rice will soak up the sauce so you’ll have a thicker, more creamy broth when you serve the soup later.
6: To add in a bit of the spicy sauce, try using more garlic powder.
7: For extra flavor, try serving the phu as a side dish with the soup and rice.
For a spicy broth, try making your pho with garlic, chili and other spices.
If the broth makes your stomach feel too full, try leaving out the rice.
You can also leave out the noodles.
To make your broth more creamy, try blending the broth with some water, which will make it a bit easier to work with.
If your broth makes you want more broth, add in some water.
For those who don’t like the taste of broth, you might add in cornstarch or corn syrup.
To thicken the soup, you could add in more soy oil or coconut oil.
For some extra flavor and a thicker broth, use the noodles instead of broth to fill the pot.
For an authentic Phoung Vallo recipe, try sticking to dried noodles instead.
