Tips for making the Spring Rolls
Prepare all your ingredients before you start
Before you start rolling your rice paper rolls, you need to make sure that all of the ingredients are cut, prepared, that your work area is set up, and that everything is ready to go.
This includes cutting all of your vegetables, preparing additional ingredients and organizing and preparing your work surface.

Preparing everything your need in advance is usually a good idea every time you cook, but it is especially important when rolling fresh spring rolls!
Set up an ingredient assembly line so that you can easily add a little of each ingredient in the rice paper package.
Do not overload the spring rolls
How much filling should I put in a spring roll?
It depends on the size of the package. Spring rolls should not have too much filling, as they can break while you roll them.
Use the best of our judgment visually and make a portion of the sample filling as a reference for the amount of filling you should use for the rest of the spring rolls.
