Vietnamese rolls

This light dish is the easiest Vietnamese dish that I often make for Lg.

Rice papers.
Prawns, boiled, shelled and deveined. Slice prawns in half lengthwise.
Beef, cut into thin strips, stir fry then set aside.
1 carrot and 1 cucumber, finely shredded.
Lettuce, basil and coriander.

Preparation: Slightly wet the rice paper, don't wait until it's soft, quickly place it on a board then place all the prepared ingredients on it. Roll rice paper firmly to envelop the filling.

Dipping sauce: Mix 1 tablespoon of fish sauce with vinegar and sugar, add 1 to 2 tablespoon of water to adjust to your taste, then add thinly sliced chillies and garlic.

Note: You can substitute vegetables and herbs of your choice, pea shoots, green mango, green papaya, instead of cucumbers and carrots, or mint leaves, chives instead of basil or corianders. Any type of cooked meat instead of beef or prawns, even soy sauce for the fish sauce. Be flexible and have fun.

It's so hard to find the rice paper. Where did you get it?

The rice paper is available in all supermarkets here in Singapore, I can always find it easily.
