Rice Paper Chicken Rolls

Hello peeps! How have u been? I am just back from my annual month long summer vacation and now trying to deal with the post holiday blues reminiscing about all the good time I had along with my family. While I was having fun I was also missing my blogging. When you do something over a long period of time it becomes a habit , a part of you and you ultimately want to get back to doing that.

Now I am back , refreshed and relaxed, all charged up to get back to work and cook and share all those amazing recipes with you all. Food was a big part of this vacation ( as it is with every vacation) and that means I have come back with few extra kilos. Now the focus is to get fit and eat healthy without compromising on taste and fun!

These Thai Rice Paper Rolls are light and filling at the same time . The use of fresh vegetables along with chicken with a dash of chilies add to the zing of this dish.
