Making of Rice Paper

 

Rice papers or Banh Trang, are thin edible sheets made with rice and tapioca flour along with water and some seasoning. These are sun dried hence available in solid, thin and translucent circular sheets, which are dipped in hot water at the time of cooking. Though, I was told to keep the rice sheet on wet towel, during our quick spring roll class, on the boat at Halong Bay.

Rice paper or Banh Trang is a staple when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine. From Vietnamese spring rolls, summer rolls with fresh vegetables, to fried and baked sweet as well as savory rolls.
