Tex Mex Egg Rolls

Tex Mex Egg Rolls

These Tex Mex Egg Rolls are so good and they're vegetarian! I made a big batch of Veggie Enchiladas one day, which are to die for by the way, and had some filling leftover. Instead of making another tray of enchiladas, I decided to try my hand at these egg rolls, and since that day I have always had a batch of these in my freezer. You can make mini ones by rolling the egg roll pastry a little tighter, or keep them full size like these. They make a great party appetizer, are a great picnic food, and they will make your afternoon tea spread a memorable one.

Fruit Chaat

I sometimes find it sad that things that are a part of your daily life become seasonal when you move away. The samosa's, jalebi's and fruit chaat you eat so often become traditions you pull out during Ramadan. As much as I would like to make fruit chaat all year round, I make it everyday in Ramadan, maybe because that's when I miss home the most. And if there ever was a fruit chaat recipe that you could make you feel at home, it's this one, with the sweet guava juice and earthy cumin balancing the sweet and sour fruits so well, I'm transported to Lahore with every bite...
