The vegan recipe for Steamed Rice Rolls with Sweet Sauce:

servings – 6 to 8


  • 4 cups rice flour
  • 4 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 4 tbsp wheat starch – gluten-free wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups hot water


  1. In a mixing bowl, mix rice flour with water (2 cups) to form a smooth rice batter and set aside.
  2. In another mixing bowl, mix tapioca flour, wheat starch with water (1 cup), slowly pour hot water over, stir to combine and leave to cool.
  3. Add the rice batter (step 1) and vegetable oil; stir to form a smooth rice roll batter.
  4. Fill a steamer with adequate amount of water and bring to a boil.
  5. Brush the surface of a non-stick plate with some vegetable oil and position it in the steamer.
  6. Ladle 1/2 cup of the rice roll batter (step 3) onto the non-stick plate, spread evenly, cover the steamer and steam for 1 1/2 minute until the rice sheet turns translucent.
  7. Remove the plate from the steamer, use a large soft edge spatula to slowly scrape and roll up the rice sheet into a long roll; set on a serving plate.
  8. Repeat steps 5 to 7 until the rice roll batter is used up.
  9. Cut the rice rolls into short pieces and dress with Sweet Red Yeast Rice Sauce (or soy sauce), Fresh Herbal Chili Sauce and roasted white sesame seeds.
