      I have been intrigued by this recipe ever since I spotted it among the RSC entries. I finally had an opportunity to make it today to serve with a salad & cup of soup. I must say I had some problems with the recipe. First coriander seeds are listed twice in the ingredient list. Then the curry powder isn’t mentioned in the instructions. I also found step #7 a little confusing. I followed the ingredient list only using the coriander seeds once & did add the curry powder. My biggest problem was in rolling these babies up...the phyllo tended to tear easily. After the first two, I started using two sheets brushed with butter per cigar. They were much easier to roll & I actually preferred the crunchiness of them to the ones only having one sheet of phyllo. They are unusual & I think by adjusting the spices slightly, something I would really like. I think the spice combos one could come up with are endless. I will look forward to experimenting & matching to different menus. Thank you for sparking my imagination & I compliment you on an interesting contest idea.

      I liked that this was easy to prepare, but I was not sure what to do with the second half teaspoon of coriander seeds. I think the garlic salt gave it a bit of a harsh flavor, and would probably opt for 1 clove of fresh garlic and a little kosher salt next time.
