Stir-Fry Rice Rolls


These stir-fry rice rolls are one of my favorites whenever we have dim sum. So, I decided to have a go at making them at home. They are easy to make, only a few ingredients. I added a few dried chilies to give the rice rolls a hint of spiciness. Do give this recipe a try, it’s simple and delicious.

    @kelanth1013, Ninette, Pamela: Rice rolls are also known as rice noodle rolls and Chee cheong fun. Yes, they are akin to chow fun but in rolls.

  6. Quick question--what exactly is "light soy sauce"? I've never come across such a thing in any specialty grocer (excepting "light" as in low sodium), and I was wondering if you could clarify. Thanks!

  7. Hi Shelle, light soy sauce is the same as Soy or Soya Sauce.

  8. I am a food blog addict and yours is the first to really inspire me to try cooking the dishes. I made these tonight with great success, with fresh hot and sweet chili peppers, and kale from the farmer's market. Thanks for all of your recipes and inspiring photographs!
