Also called Vietnamese fresh rolls, salad rolls, Vietnamese spring rolls and many other things.
It was the first time I made them and I was very pleased with the result.
You fill them with lots of vegetables, often also some meat or shrimps and rice noodles. I don`t like rice noodles because they look like worms to me, so I used cooked basmati rice instead.
It sounded so simple, just put the rice paper in water for a few seconds to soften it, but when I did it, the sticky paper folded itself together and it wouldn`t let me straighten it out – and I ended up with something that looked like a perforated condom. 😦
But I learned quickly and for every roll I made, I became better and better.
In the end, wrapping the rolls up was fun. 🙂
Only one roll – that first one – became a “condom roll”, the rest turned out fine.
They are usually eaten fresh, with dipping sauce.
But they can also be fried.
I pan-fried some of them in sesame oil and I liked the fried version even more than the fresh one.
I made my rolls vegetarian and these are the ingredients I used this time:
