1. Soy Sauce and Vinegar Ha Cao Dipping Sauce

This is one of the most popular Ha Cao dipping sauce recipes. As the name suggests, soy sauce is the main ingredient in this Chinese-style dipping sauce.


  • 2.5 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1.5 tablespoons of water
  • 2 teaspoons of vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon of roasted white sesame seeds
  • Dried shallots and minced garlic
  • Thinly sliced ginger
  • Fresh chili peppers, sate (optional)

How to make:

  1. Sauté the dried shallots and minced garlic in a pan with a little bit of cooking oil until fragrant. Then add the thinly sliced ginger and stir-fry together (be careful not to burn the shallots and garlic). Turn off the heat.
  2. In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, and water until well combined. Adjust the taste to your liking. Add the sautéed shallots, garlic, and ginger, and if desired, add chili peppers or sate for some extra heat. Finally, sprinkle roasted white sesame seeds for added fragrance.
  3. This Ha Cao dipping sauce is suitable for both steamed and fried Ha Cao.

2. Simple Ha Cao Dipping Sauce

Unlike the previous recipe, which uses soy sauce as the main ingredient, this recipe has a more Vietnamese touch with the addition of coconut water (making up 70% of the sauce), combined with soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar. This creates a dipping sauce that is sweet, savory, and refreshing, complementing the flavor of Ha Cao perfectly.


  • 100ml of fresh coconut water
  • 20ml of soy sauce
  • 10ml of vinegar
  • 5ml of fish sauce
  • 30 grams of sugar

How to make:

Combine coconut water, fish sauce, vinegar, and sugar in a small saucepan. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved. Then add soy sauce and mix again. Adjust the seasoning to your taste. This Ha Cao dipping sauce is best enjoyed with steamed Ha Cao.

3. Spicy Soy Chili Ha Cao Dipping Sauce

This soy chili dipping sauce is a perfect combination of saltiness, spiciness, and sweetness, with a distinctive aroma from sesame oil. Fresh chili peppers, minced garlic, and chopped green onions add extra flavor to this Ha Cao dipping sauce.


  • ½ cup of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
  • Chopped green onions

How to make:

In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and sesame oil. Stir well and adjust the taste. Once it suits your preference, add minced garlic and chopped green onions at the end for a visually appealing presentation.

Hoisin sauce is a thick, aromatic sauce commonly used in Chinese cooking. It contains soybean paste, chili, garlic, five-spice powder, vinegar, and sugar, resulting in a sauce with complex flavors.

  • 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of regular soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar
  • Roasted white sesame seeds
  • 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
  • Thinly sliced ginger, chopped green onions

  2. Cover the dipping sauce and let it sit in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld together. Before serving, heat the mixture in a small saucepan until hot, then enjoy.
  3. This Ha Cao dipping sauce goes well with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian Ha Cao, whether they are fried or steamed.

5. Ponzu Dipping Sauce

Ponzu sauce is a traditional and popular Japanese sauce. It is dark brown, watery, and tangy due to the use of citrus fruits like oranges or lemons. Ponzu sauce is considered the “soul” of many Japanese dishes and is used in various ways, including as a dipping sauce for Ha Cao, sushi, kimbap, steamed dishes, and salads.


  • 8 tablespoons of Ponzu sauce

6. Ha Cao Dipping Sauce with Hoisin and Sesame Oil

This Ha Cao dipping sauce recipe is unique because it doesn’t use soy sauce. Instead, it features hoisin sauce, resulting in a thicker and slightly sweet dipping sauce.


  • 1 small cup of cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon of hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar
  • Minced garlic, chopped green onions, fresh chili peppers
  • Sesame seeds

How to make:

Combine minced garlic, chopped green onions, sesame seeds, and hoisin sauce in a small bowl. Heat up 1 small cup of cooking oil until boiling, then pour about 2-3 teaspoons into the garlic and hoisin mixture. Add the remaining ingredients (vinegar, salt, sugar) and mix well. This is your Ha Cao dipping sauce.

Note: Heating the oil before adding it to the garlic, chili, and green onions will enhance the flavors and make the dipping sauce more delicious.
