Summer Rolls, or gỏi cuốn in Vietnamese, are wraps of various ingredients in rice wafers, and are often confused with nem or spring rolls (which, in turn, are often confused with egg rolls).

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

Ingredients before rolling
  1. Dip a rice wafer into the warm water and remove immediately when it is completely wet—it only needs to be in the water for a few seconds.
  2. Lay the rice wafer on a board or plate.
  3. Arrange a portion of the ingredients near the edge of the rice wafer in a neat pile, with the fingers of cucumber roughly parallel to the edge of the wafer.
  4. Fold the edge of the wafer over the pile of ingredients, and roll it over once.
  5. Fold the sides of the wafer inwards, to close of the ends of the roll you just made.
  6. Roll the wafer up the rest of the way, to enclose the roll completely.
  7. Set aside for 5 minutes to dry a little before eating.
  8. The above process for each summer roll.
