Khau sli cake is an indispensable traditional cake in the Tet holidays for the Tay and Nung ethnic groups in Cao Bang. Khau sli locally means “puffed glutinous rice cake”, also known as “peanut-contained popped rice cake.”

Na Giang Khau sli cake is processed following the traditional recipe with locally available ingredients such as glutinous rice, peanuts, and honey; then produced by craft methods handed down from ancestors with different stages such as steaming glutinous rice, pounding and mixing it with rock sugar, spreading out peanuts, and more.

The puffed glutinous rice grains are combined with iridescent yellow sugar, and a layer of shiny red-brown peanuts is evenly covered on the cake’s surface. The resulting cake is extremely crispy, thanks to the sweetness of rock sugar, the perfume of puffed rice, and the nutty flavor of peanuts. On cold winter days, a slice of Khau sli cake with a cup of steaming green tea will be a lovely accompaniment.

The journey to nominate and promote the TOP-BEST best-selling OCOP-certified products in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam is one of the projects implemented under the strategic alliance between the Vietnam Records Organization (VietKings), the USA Records Organization (USKings) and the World Records Institute (WorldMark), with the goal of propagating and promoting the record values of countries worldwide.
