Spicy Chow Mein Noodle Wrap Recipe

Spicy Chow Mein Noodle Wrap Recipe uses Thai rice paper to wrap noodles and vegetables  sauteed in various sauces . This recipe is typically adapted from Chinese and Thai Cuisine. These wraps make an ideal snack option for kids tiffin, kitty parties, birthday parties etc.

The only tricky thing in this recipe is dealing with the rice paper. Usually, when you buy rice paper, it is in its solid form, so while making wraps we need to soften it by immersing in water just for 8-10 secs.
