I love cold rolls!! very easy to prepare and highly interactive..! basically you find some vegetables which you like, a protein of choice, a sauce and rice paper rolls and off you go...!!! the meat can be left overs or something really simple like blanched prawns. veggies typically are bean sprouts, cucumber, carrots, coriander...and there's also some rice vermecelli and toasted peanuts involved...
here's the rice paper soaking in hot water with a pinch of sugar added. What's the sugar for?? Hmm...read somewhere (can't remember now) that it gets rid of the slightly off taste of rice paper or something like that?
Usually i lift it out of the water with a chopstick or fork and lay it on the plate..
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
