what brocho is made on /rice noodles/rice paper? thanks
To the Questoner,
First bracha rice noodles:
if made from rice flour in a cooked form, mezonos.
After bracha: Boreh Nefashos.
First bracha rice paper:
According to what we verified, the production of rice paper is not by means of cooking only by steaming
therefore its first bracha should only be a shehakol
this could also make it often qualify as a 'tafel' to other foods, ex. when used as a wrap, unlike other mezonos wraps that would retain their unique importance.
After bracha on rice paper [when not eaten as a tafel]: Boreh Nefashos
