How to Make Egg Rolls with Rice Paper

Making egg rolls is not a tough task at all, especially if you have the egg roll wraps available at your home. However, there can be a situation, where you don’t have access to the latter ingredient at home and have to serve the egg rolls to the guests, who are waiting in the dining room.

Such a situation can be quite embarrassing, but you don’t need to worry about that, as the egg rolls can be made with the help of rice paper too.
