Ingredients for the Rice Wrapper:

2 cups raw rice

3 cups hot water

1 cup warm milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

sesame oil


Soak the rice in 3 cups of hot water for about 30 minutes. Blend into a fine batter. Once blended, stir in the milk, oil and salt to make a thin batter.

Pour the batter into a heavy bottomed sauce pan and turn on heat to medium. Stir continuously until the batter becomes thick and leaves the sides of the pan. The process takes between 15 to 20 minutes for the batter to getting into a dough like mixture.

It is very important not to let go of the mixture even for a second without stirring, as it will form lumps. To make a smooth wrapper we need to have a dough without any lumps.

Test for doneness: Hold the latter with the cooked batter and it should not fall off. This means the dough for the wrapper is ready.

Turn of heat and transfer the rice dough into another container. Cover with a wet muslin cloth and keep warm.
