Bo La Lot

Other Ingredients


  • Preheat your oven to broil.
  • Add all the ingredients for the Bo La Lot into a large bowl. Mix together with your hands and let marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Make your bo ba lot. Lay your betel leaf flat on a plate with the matte side up. Roll 1-2 tablespoons of meat into the shape of a small sausage and add to the leaf. Make sure you place the meat closer to the pointy side of the leaf. Roll the bo la lot like you would an egg roll. Put the bo la lot onto a skewer. Repeat this process until you run out of meat or betel leaves.
  • Put your skewers onto a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil. Broil the bo la lot for 6-8 minutes, turning them every 2 minutes to prevent the leaves from burning. Make sure to place the baking sheet on the top third of the oven.
  • Serve right after it's done. You can eat them in a vermicelli bowl or in a spring roll.
