- To make the dipping sauce, mix together chili sauce, rice vinegar and Sriracha sauce; set it aside.

Once softened drain the excess water and keep it aside. You will be amazed to know that how the taste of spring rolls turns into a piece of delight by adding these cellophane noodles.
Then dip the rice paper into lukewarm water for about 10 seconds until it gets softened.
