    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    Carol had asked for this in the forums, hope this helps:) This is a real "must have" in my house on a rainy day or when terribly hungry or even as an appetizer at parties. Please note that the potatoes, onions and green chillies listed in the Dough portion belong in the Filling portion of the recipe. Thanks!

      Instead of making the shell by hand, use Phillo Dough ... its not too far from the real thing and saves *lots* of time. Also good to spray on olive oil and bake in an oven till golden brown for a low-fat healthy version

      These hit the spot. I added cashew pieces to a few of these and they turned out nicely as well.
