Broken rice, full heart.
A Vietnamese dish made from rice with fractured rice grains. Tấm refers to the broken rice grains, while cơm refers to cooked rice.
It is generally served with sticky pork chops, finely sliced cucumber and pickled vegetables to create a sweet and crispy texture. A small bowl of dipping sauce is a customary accompaniment that adds saltiness to this texturally rich meal.
The main ingredient, broken rice, is a traditionally cheaper grade of rice produced by damage in milling. Also known as com tam Saigon, as it primarily served in the south of Vietnam.
