Healthy Phyllo / filo/ fillo rolls- recipe

Last time when I posted the filo triangles few mailed me to know where to find these Filo dough sheets, well friends they are available in frozen section in all grocery stores ( I bought them from walmart, I do not know if they are available in India). Filo dough's are available in two type one is dough sheets and the other is shell form. This filo sheets are mainly used for making baklava. When compared with puff pastry sheets these filo sheets have a choice of choosing oil of our interest. You can line these sheets with the butter/vegetable oil/ghee any thing you wish (olive oil doesn't suit for baking).
filo sheets
Coming to recipe, it is quick and easy recipe.
Filo sheets-4
Cabbage- Finely sliced to longitudinal pieces-4cups
Carrot-finely sliced to longitudinal pieces-2cups
Capsicum- finely sliced- 1/2cup (optional, I did not add)
Pepper powder- to taste
Salt to taste
oil/butter- as required


  • Take filo sheets out of the refrigerator before1-2hrs and let them attain room temperature.
  • This recipe makes two rolls and calls for 4 dough sheets. 
  • So keep the remaining in the refrigerator immediately.
  • Semi-cook all the vegetables, so that their structure remain intact. Filter vegetables.
  • Squeeze excess water out and add salt to taste, now it will give out more water squeeze them and add pepper powder to taste. (make sure that mixture remain dry)
  • Now Take one big sheet and coat with oil you prefer, I used butter. If you are weight watcher you can use canola oil. Place another sheet on the greased one. 
  • Now add the vegetable filling on the short side of the filo sheet and roll it. Repeat same process for another roll.
  • Prepare the baking tray by greasing with non stick oil/ cover with aluminum foil and grease it. Pre -heat oven to 350F.
  • Transfer the rolls to baking tray and coat with little oil on the top.
  • Bake for 20-25min @ 350F.
  • Take them out and let them come down to room temperature.
  • The crispy and yummy filo rolls are ready to serve. They can be served with tomato sauce/ ketchup. But I love to have them with out any sauce.

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack.

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
