Never Again! The next time I want to eat these delicious rolls, I will search out a Vietnamese restaurant. It would be easier, take less time and probably cost less in the long run.
This is NOT something you can make at home unless you have training. First of all, the rice wrappers cannot be found in most grocery stores, and as there are no Asian food stores in my vicinity, I had to make a trip into New York. I only found one kind of wrapper and while they were rice, they were not 8.5 inches. Working with them, was like working with spider webs dipped in jello.
As to the vermicelli...."2 oz."???This is a joke. Rice vermicelli come in a stiff bundle (package size 8 oz.) that like a bale of hay or raffia, cannot be broken easily. Once they are cooked (I had to dump the whole thing into hot water to break them up) it required tongs and scissors to break them up, so the idea of "put a few" on the roll is ridiculous.
All in all (not counting time to go into the city to purchase ingrediens) I spent 4 frustrating hours trying to make these. Like I said, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AT HOME. Perhaps a video would be helpful, as well as a more realistic recipe.
