I miss that much 'monsoon masti' in US. This year I enjoyed this rains with severe thunderbolt in here, Ohio valley. Clouds covered the daylight fully at afternoon time, feeling nostalgic and just thought about 'Kal Boishakhi'  of West Bengal and prepared some evening snacks with a piping hot coffee mug to celebrate this rainy day here. This is a quick and easy evening snack or appetizer. Very less amount of oil used here, so it is healthy too. The secret to making this recipe is, in its filling. Paneer mixed with paprika and cheese, which gives an elegant taste as well as flavor. It is one of the simple cheesy snacks,which is amazingly tempting.

4 Egg Roll wraps
3/4 cup Crumbled Cottage Cheese (Paneer)
1/4 cup Frozen Green Peas (defrosted)
2 tbsps finely chopped Onions
1 tsp finely chopped Green Chillies
1/2 tsp Paprika powder
1/3 tsp Chat Masala
2 tsps Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Shredded Cheese
1 tbsp finely chopped Cilantro (coriander leaves)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt to taste

Take paneer and green peas in a bowl. Add chopped onions, green chillies, paprika, shredded cheese, chat masala, lemon juice, cilantro and salt in it. Mix nicely.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts. Now wrap paneer filling like an envelope style. Spread an egg roll wrap on a plain surface. Place 1 part of mixture on the centre of the wrap, being sure to keep the filling in the center and not near the edges. 
Fold the right side over toward the middle, then the left side, so that one is overlapping the other.
Now little moist the edges of other two opposite sides and bring the bottom flap up over the previous folds.
Fold the top flap down, tucking it inside the opening to seal the parcels nicely.
It is very important to make sure the parcels are well sealed so that no oil seeps in.
Now heat oil in a non-stick pan on medium flame. Place 4 parcels on pan. After 2 minutes, when the side is little crunchy and little browned, turn over the other side of each parcels. Remove from heat after a couple of minutes. Make ensure that each side of parcels will be fried well.

Serve hot with piping hot coffee or tea.
TIPS: Instead of shallow fry, you may bake these on oven at 350 F for 15 minutes. Don't forget to
         preheat oven before inserting the 'Wraps'. If you wish, you may add chopped green onions with
         the paneer filling.
