I fried rice paper

I use rice paper a lot in my videos, usually to make spring rolls but today I'm going to try frying it for the first time. I've seen a bunch of videos and I've always wanted to try it but I don't fry foods often and we also don't have a vent hood inside the house. So, I didn't want the whole house smelling like oil. I cut up a few sheets of rice paper into triangles. And the question I get asked a lot is "where do I buy my rice paper?". I get it from a local Asian grocery store. If you don't have one near you, you can also find them online. I heated up some vegetable oil in a pan on medium heat.

I got to admit throwing the rice paper in the oil was very satisfying. They only needed a few seconds in the oil before I took them out. I tried 1 at a time, 3 at a time, and of course I got impatient and threw in a bunch at a time. Which wasn't a good idea because they clumped together. I laid them on a napkin covered plate so it could absorb the excess oil. Then, for the seasoning, I used the seasoning package from a shin ramyun package. I only used about half of it since it would've been too salty if I used the whole thing. Honestly, this wasn't that bad. It was basically crackers that absorbed the seasoning flavor. It's a good snack but probably not something I'll make often.
