VTV.vn - CNN Travel has just listed Vietnam's bánh cam as one of the 30 best fried foods around the world, making it the fourth Vietnamese dish to be recommended by the cable network.

A variation on deep-fried rice balls, these southern Vietnamese sweets are made with tender glutinous rice flour and filled with mung bean paste. The balls are then rolled in sesame seeds and fried.

"Though the name translates to "orange cake," there's no orange flavor in these deep-fried rice balls. Instead, these southern Vietnamese sweets are named for their visual resemblance to an orange. Made with tender glutinous rice flour and filled with mung bean paste, the balls are then rolled in sesame seeds and fried.

Banh ran is a similar variation found in northern Vietnam that is drizzled with sugar syrup and has a slightly hollow interior for the filling", CNN writes.

Previously, CNN listed bánh bột lọc, Vietnamese pork and shrimp dumplings, with wrappers made from tapioca flour, as one of the world's tastiest dumplings. It also named bánh mì one of the best sandwiches and phở bò (beef noodle) among the 20 best soups in the world.
