Sri Lankan Patties

This is a Sri Lankan Snack. Delicious I should say, It goes very well with some chilly sauce or even ketchup. About the filling, I guess you could use your fantasies...like you could use beef,mutton,chicken anything you like. The first time I tried this recipe I used the canned fish ( here in Italy is called mackerel ) but then the next time i used meat of chicken,it was heaven for me ;) Hope you enjoy it!
