Banh ran, donut, is a deep-fried glutinous rice ball that originates from the northern region. There are two main kinds of banh ran, namely salty cake and sweet one, with the latter much more common than the former. While the filling of the cake contains sweet mashed mung beans, the inside of a salty cake is quite similar to that of a pillow cake, as it features a mixture of minced meat, prawns, glass noodles, and vegetables.
