Step 5: Using rice paper wrappers

Picture of using rice paper wrappers
You can make egg rolls with rice paper wrappers - they taste great, but they don't look very pretty. ;)

You'll want to soak the wrappers in warm water for 15-20 seconds until they're nice and soft - but not longer because they will start dissolving!

Lay the wrapper out flat and then place the filling at one side of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper over the filling once and then twice, pushing the air out as you go. The fold both sides into the middle and keep rolling. You can assemble lots of these at once and keep them on wax paper and covering them with damp paper towels before drying.

Keep these as tight as possible - if you leave big air spaces in them, oil will seep in during frying!

You'll fry these at 350-375 F for just a few minutes. Place them on paper towels to drain when they're done. :D
