Without it splitting?!
A quickie, first world problem/disaster!
I attempted rice paper wraps tonight, soaked the sheet in warm water for 30 seconds like it said on the pack, but they broke as soon as I tried taking it out. I tried a few times, but each one resulted in a wet tissue-like, soggy ripped mess.

How do you use rice paper??

I hold the round rice paper in my hand and run it under the tap until it just starts to soften. I then put it on a chopping board and put a piece of paper towel on top to absorb moisture. By this time the paper should be completely soft. I then add the filling, fold the edges and roll like a wrap. Yum! Hope that helps xo

Try doing them for less than 30 seconds, and slightly less warm water. And only do one at a time. Thats how I do them anyway.

I learnt from a Vietnamese friend - you get boiling water on a dinner plate and rotate the rice paper around the edges very quickly.
It doesn't take long at all - like a few seconds per sheet of rice paper, then use it immediately.
Good luck - it takes a few goes to get it down.

Used these for dinner the other night, filled with carrot, cabbage, mince, ginger and soy. Shallow fried them for a few minutes - spring rolls! Yummo.
Yeah I soak them for probably about ten seconds - they are still kind of stiff/holding their form when I remove from the water, onto a lightly oiled board to roll up.

I don't use boiling water and leave them for about 15 seconds. I think just trying a few different temps/lengths of time will work for you

Re: How do you use rice paper??
I soak them for 15 seconds and then put them on a fairly damp tea towel, seems to work ok... They occasionally tear but usually ok
