After several failed attempts, I finally figured out the trick to making these close to perfect. First, I found that using two rice paper sheets instead of one made it easier to handle and prevented the sheets from ripping. Secondly, soaking the sheets in a bowl filled with hot tap water until they were slightly withered made it easier to roll, because if the sheets get too soft, they become difficult to lay on a flat surface because of the folds. But trust me, the labour was worth it :)
First, prepare your shrimp and remaining ingredients and set aside.
Fill a large bowl with hot tap water. Take one rice paper sheet and place it in the bowl for about 5-7 seconds, or until it is slightly withered. Donâ€™t leave it in for too long or it will be difficult to wrap/roll.
Place the first sheet on a clean flat surface, then top the sheet with a handful of leaves and spread them out evenly.
Place a second sheet in the hot water. If you find the water warm, toss it out and refill the bowl with hot tap water. Place the second sheet on top of the first sheet with the leaves and flatten out the edges.
Place all your remaining ingredients in the middle of the sheet, then take one end of the sheet and fold it to the other end until firm. Next, roll the sheet from where the ingredients are to the end of the sheet, tucking in the edges as you go along until you get to the end, then cut the rolls in half.
Repeat the process of the remaining sheets, depending on how many you want.
