Divide the filo pastry sheets into two semi circles, and then into four curved triangles. Cover any filo pastry you are not using with a towel to stop it drying out. Place the filling at the wide end, fold up the long sides to hold in the filling, then roll it up like a small cigar. Wet the pointed end with a brush using toroughly beated egg, water and milk mixture . Then fold to give a cigar shape.

Alternatively, you can bake them in the oven on a greased baking sheet brushing the tops of the rolls with butter until golden and crisp. Approx 15 minutes in a pre heated oven at 200 degree C.
