Shanghai Picnic Parcels ( Shiang Hai Picnic )

Another option for a picnic box, these rice paper parcels contain spicy mince & shitake mushrooms. In Thailand, dishes that contain shitake mushrooms are usually named 'Shanghai' after the chinese city. I've cut them in half for this photograph, but its better to keep them whole so that the rice, mince and mushrooms stays inside.

Ingredients
100 gms Sticky Rice (Pre Steamed)
50 gms Pork Mince
5 Shitake Mushrooms
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons White Wine
2 Tablespoons Chopped Chillies
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
10 gms Chopped Coriander Leaves
10 gms Chopped Mint Leaves
12 Rice Papers

Preparation
1. Fry the pork mince in light soy sauce, white wine, and salt until the mince is cooked through.
2. If the shitake mushrooms are dried, soak them first in water for 15 minutes. Cook the mushrooms in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes, then chop them finely.
3. Mix the sticky rice with the fried mince and chopped mushrooms, chopped chillies, lemon juice, coriander leaves.
4. Soak the rice papers in warm water for 3 minutes to soften it.
5. Lay a piece of rice paper down, spoon on the mixture, roll up into a sausage shape, cut in half and serve.

Here I've photographed a typical picnic box with these rolls inside. The other compartments are: steamed sticky rice, coriander and mint leaves and spicy mince, but you can mix and match with other picnic boxes.
