Vietnamese Cuisine has a feel and a rhythm of its own. A sublime tone of delicious, delicate, calmly satisfying flavors, whether in their soothing Noodle Soup (Pho) or these pretty rice paper wrap rolls. If you have tried rice paper wrap rolls before, chances are that someone else have pre-rolled the rice paper rolls for you. Ever thought of rolling your own?
I’m so excited that rice papers are available in some supermarkets like Jusco and Tesco, and they are actually produced locally. If you’ve never wrapped with Vietnamese rice paper, don’t be daunted. Wrapping rice paper rolls is like making a spring roll or burrito and you don’t have to make it perfect.
Whether it’s dining with family or having friends over, rice paper roll DIY makes a fun social activity at the dining table. Place salad, beef, rice paper, and dipping sauce on the table. Prepare a few deep plates or large bowl deep enough to drip the rice paper in, filled them with hot water. Invite guests to dip the edge of the rice paper in the water and turn to wet evenly. Place the salad and beef and roll up like a spring roll.
