  1. Soak noodles in boiling water in a large heatproof bowl for 5 minutes; stir to separate strands, then drain. Using scissors, cut noodles into shorter lengths.
  2. Place noodles in a large bowl; drizzle with 2 tbs of the dipping sauce. Add vegetables and herbs; toss to combine.
  3. To assemble rolls, place 1 sheet of rice paper in a medium bowl of warm water until just softened. Lift sheet from water carefully; place on a board covered with a clean tea towel. Place ⅓ cup of mixture across lower part of the sheet, in a neat horizontal pile. Fold bottom end over, then sides and roll up tightly. Place on a platter. Repeat with remaining rice paper sheets and vegetable filling.
  4. To make dipping sauce, combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add chili; bring to the boil. Reduce heat slightly and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour sauce into a heatproof bowl; cool. Stir in remaining ingredients.
