Indian Kolkata Egg Rolls

"Anyone who's been to Kolkata and eaten one of these delicious egg rolls will understand how occasionally the desire to eat one RIGHT NOW is compulsive! Here's a quick and easy recipe adapted from elsewhere on the web. Fresh tasting and (reasonably) healthy! Use a soft pliable roti (Indian flat bread) for best results."

I'm a resident of the beautiful island to the south of mainland Australia-- Tasmania. I love the peace and greenness of the "Holiday Isle". What a spot to live all the time! A mum to two beautiful girls (a baby and a toddler), I'm also a bit of a country girl, and we live on a few acres that incorparate horses, ducks, chooks, a cat, and who knows what else by now! I'm also a Bible Student, and attend classes and meetings a few times a week. I'm a member of the Christadelphians, which is a Bible based, world wide, community, who are keen to share the Truth of God's word with everyone. I really believe that God's Word has something in it that makes it interesting and relevant for every single person to look at it. To see a photo of me with my friend's horse, click:
