Fried Rice Papers: crispy and super easy to make

Fried rice papers are a delicious and simple snack that can be made quickly at home. They are light, crispy, and can be filled with various ingredients for added flavor.


  • Rice papers (spring roll wrappers)
  • Cooking oil for frying

Optional Fillings:

  • Shredded vegetables (carrots, cabbage, bean sprouts)
  • Cooked protein (chicken, shrimp, tofu)
  • Fresh herbs (cilantro, mint, basil)
  • Soy sauce or dipping sauce for serving


  1. Prepare your desired fillings by shredding vegetables, cooking protein, and washing fresh herbs. Have them ready for stuffing the rice papers.
  2. Fill a large bowl with warm water. Dip one rice paper into the water and let it soften for a few seconds until it becomes pliable. Be careful not to oversoak the rice paper, as it will become too soft and difficult to handle.
  3. Place the softened rice paper on a clean, flat surface, such as a cutting board or plate.
  4. Add your desired fillings onto the lower half of the rice paper. Be mindful not to overstuff it, as it can make it challenging to roll.
  5. Fold the sides of the rice paper over the fillings, then gently roll it up tightly, similar to a burrito.
  6. Repeat the process with the remaining rice papers and fillings.
  7. Heat cooking oil in a deep skillet or wok over medium heat. Make sure there is enough oil to submerge the rice papers.
  8. Once the oil is hot, carefully place a rolled rice paper into the oil. Fry it for about 1-2 minutes on each side until it turns golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to flip the rice paper during frying.
  9. Remove the fried rice paper from the oil and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Repeat the frying process with the remaining rolled rice papers.
  10. Allow the fried rice papers to cool slightly before serving. They can be enjoyed as is or paired with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as soy sauce or a homemade dipping sauce.

Fried rice papers are a versatile snack that can be customized with your favorite fillings. They are perfect for parties, appetizers, or a light snack. Enjoy the crispy texture and delicious flavors of homemade fried rice papers!
