    Crispy from the outside, soft and glutinous from the inside with a hollow pocket in the center

    • Drain the soaked mung beans and glutinous rice, and toss well to mix them together. Let the water drain off completely. Mix the sugar with the coconut milk. (You can stir under low heat or microwave for 2-3 minutes.
    • Add the sticky rice and mung beans into a rice cooker together with the coconut milk mixture. Also add 1/4 cup of water, making sure that the liquid level just barely cover the rice and beans. Cook in the rice cooker until done as you would cook rice.
    • Put on plastic gloves and grease the surface of the cutting board with some vegetable oil. We're gonna need the rice when it's still very hot, so it's better to wear another pair of wool gloves underneath to prevent burning your hands. Mix the steaming hot sticky rice with some vegetable oil until all the rice grains and mung beans break up and turn into like a dough texture. When you no longer see the whole drains of rice in the dough, you can form it into a log with a piece of plastic wrap. Shape it nicely into a cylinder.
    • Unwrap and grease the knife with some vegetable oil. Cut the log into round slices to the thickness of about 1 cm. Then roll each slice flat to reduce the thickness by half. Try to shape it into a really nice round circle.
    • Heat about 1 inch deep of vegetable oil in a pan. Submerge a spatula into the oil to prevent sticking. Gently drop in a piece or two of the sticky rice patties. Just fry 1 or 2 pieces at a time. Keep the heat on medium. Fry for 1-2 mins until the outside is no longer sticky. The trick to make it puff up is to use the spatula to press it 1 or 2 times on each side. When they are nicely golden brown, take out and place on paper towels to drain off the excess oil.
    • Xoi chien phong taste the best when you prepare it with grilled chicken with honey (Ga nuong mat ong).
