Nem Nuong Sauce

4 cups Water
1/2 cup Lean ground Pork
2  teaspoons garlic, finely chopped

In a small pot, bring water and sweet rice to boil.  Then reduce heat to low and  cook until soft. 
Add shrimps in the sweet rice pot. 
In a small pan, fry the garlic with a teaspoon of oil until lightly browned. Add pork and stir for a few minutes. 
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.  Turn the heat off and set it aside.
Using a food processor to process cooked sweet rice and the pork mixture until smooth. 
Pour it back into a pot and bring it to boil. If the sauce looks thick, add a little bit more of water.  Turn off the heat.
Now, it's time to dip the nem nng roll into the delicious, tasty and  glowing orange dipping sauce.
