  • This is a cold dish and requires no cooking or stoves.
  • The first step involves soaking the rice paper rolls in water. You can find these rolls at your nearest supermarket or online as well.Once soaked, spread the roll out and start with protein. Put tofu in it. It can be marinated for an extra zing.
  • Next come rice noodles. They have to marinated in water as well. Place a small amount of them on the tofu.
  • This is followed by moong dal sprouts. You can use any sprouts for this step, not necessarily moong.
  • Once you’ve added the sprouts to the mix, layer it up with some lettuce.
  • Add pickled carrots and cucumbers to it. They are pickled in vinegar, salt and sugar.
  • Sprinkle some Himalayan pink salt and pumpkin seeds.
  • Roll it up and cut in half.
  • Serve the roll with your favourite sauce. The one shown in the video is a peanut lemongrass sauce. You can also opt for sweet chilli or any other that you prefer.

The rice paper roll is a cold dish and can be had on the go. It’s a good, tasty source of protein and can be had at any time of the day. The dish in itself is part of a global trend and is often seen as being sold as takeaway in several parts of the world. While this is a vegan version of it, it’s found stuffed with animal protein as well.
