  2. Briefly dip one sheet of rice paper in the bowl of hot water and lay it out flat on the teatowel. Wait a few seconds for the rice paper to soften.
  3. Lay 2 mint leaves, some bean sprouts and cucumber pieces and a small amount of vermicelli noodles in a line near the edge closest to you. Place 2 prawn halves and a pork strip along the middle of the rice paper.
  4. Carefully roll half way, then fold the sides in, then roll the rest of the paper roll. Practice makes perfect!
