How khổng lồ fry rice paper?

You don’t really need any preparation unless you use a homemade spice mix and you need khổng lồ mix that. But at the end of the day frying rice paper will take you approximately 5 seconds! So ready, set, go!

Take a frying pan or a large skillet and heat it over medium heat. The larger the pan, the more rice paper chips you can make. Cut rice paper wrappers into pieces. We used a rice paper sheet that is approx. 6 inches (16 cm) in diameter and cut them into quarters. The larger the pieces are the easier khổng lồ work with them. địa chỉ cửa hàng vegetable oil approx. 0.5-inch deep. You don’t need lớn deep fry rice paper wrappers lớn get them puffed. Since they are quite thin it is enough to địa chỉ cửa hàng oil to cover them while they are still flat. (See photo #1 below for reference or you can take a look at our video.)Place the quarters in the oil and wait for them khổng lồ get crispy all around. It will take approx. 5 seconds! When they are puffy, take them out immediately. No need to wait longer. (photo #2) Use thongs to lớn gentle grab them & transfer them khổng lồ a paper towel or a cooling rack to lớn drain any excess oil. Sprinkle them with the seasoning of your choice. They are delicate so you can’t vày any direct rubbing or shaking them in a bag.

Top tips

Hot oil – While the oil doesn’t necessarily need to be piping hot, it should be medium-high heat. The reason for it is that the longer they stay in the oil, the more they soak up. The oil is at the right temperature if the rice paper sheets are ready in 5 seconds!Add seasoning after frying – Never add seasoning before frying. For one since the rice paper sheets are dry the seasoning will not stuck on them. & secondly, even if by any chance some do stuck, they will likely be burnt & turn bitter due khổng lồ the high heat. Better to cut with scissors than breaking it – I found breaking them apart with my hands resulted was a mess. Small pieces were flying around the kitchen & it was hard to break them into a specific shape. Cutting them with scissors provides a neater result.

Rice paper chips without oil?

In the microwave

I found several recommendations khổng lồ make rice paper chips in a microwave, saying to lớn leave the rice paper wrappers for one minute there then turn it around and microwave it for another minute. I tested this concept, but I found it lớn be too long. How I did bởi it successfully?

Set the microwave khổng lồ 800 Watts.Place a whole rice paper sheet on a microwave-compatible plate.Microwave it for 30 seconds. Check and only increase the time if you see unpuffed parts.

TOP tip: I use a plate a bit smaller than my rice paper sheet so that it sits around the rim and the middle is not touching the plate. In this way, you get puffed rice paper all around.

In the oven

I also tested whether it is possible khổng lồ make baked rice paper chips. Sadly, it is not. I tried several settings like using a broiler with a cold oven or pre-heated fan-oven, cold oven with lower temperature. However, the results were always the same: the rice paper wrappers got brown or burnt even before starting lớn get puffy.

In the air fryer

I don’t have an air fryer, and I couldn’t find a single mention or reference that anyone successfully made crispy rice paper chips in an air fryer. If you do try it, let us know, và will update this post accordingly.

Seasoning variations

The possibilities are endless. You can use store-bought spice mixes or homemade ones. To season 6 fried rice paper sheets we used at most 1 tablespoon of spices.

Important to note that you should choose fine powder mixes (or use a mortar even a simple one like this or coffee grinder) otherwise they will not stick to lớn the fried rice paper wrappers. No wet ingredients either!

If you need some inspiration kiểm tra out the below seasoning list.

Nutritional yeast – Use a mortar to lớn make powder out of the flakes and sprinkle them on đứng đầu for a cheezy flavor. Smoked paprika powder – For a smoky, BBQ flavor, use this albeit sparingly. Vegan prawn crackers – The texture of puffed rice papers is almost identical khổng lồ prawn crackers. Use a mortar or a coffee grinder to lớn turn nori sheets into flakes. Sprinkle them with it và a bit of salt. And voila, so yummy!
