Lusog Notes

This dish is high in vitamin A which helps one resist infections and maintains healthy skin. It is also a source of iron needed for making red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

Chef's Tip

Use a pastry brush or spray bottle to easily wet the rice papers. These add just enough moisture to the rice paper. Too much water will cause the rice paper to break.
