I can't deny that these are fiddley little things to perfect. Most of the time mine just look OK until you pick them up and then they slip apart as they are dipped into the soy ready to be applied to my face- but I don't really care how they look, they taste fab!
RICE PAPER ROLLS
- 100 grams Rice vermicelli
- 1 tablespoons Rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce
- 1 bunch Fresh coriander (roughly chopped)
- ½ cucumber (cut into thin batons)
- 6 spring onions (finely sliced)
- 12 Rice pancakes
- Soak the vermicelli according to the instructions on the packet, and drain once the translucent threads are rehydrated.
- Flavour the vermicelli with the rice vinegar, soy and fish sauces, and then add the chopped coriander, cucumber and spring onions. Mix gently with your hands to try to combine the noodles, herbs and vegetables.
- Soak the rice pancakes (again, according to packet instructions) in a shallow bowl of hot water and then lay each one on a tea towel to pat dry. Run a fairly narrow strip of noodle mixture down the middle of the pancake, fold over one half and then carefully roll it up as tightly as you can. Slice each roll into four and then arrange them on a plate.
- If you want, pour some soy sauce into a few little bowls for dipping the rolls into as you eat.
