Fillo dough Appetisers:

I read about small baklava cups filled with nuts and honey in some magazine and they looked very cute. So, I came up with an idea and made these appetisers. I made the cups with The Fillo Factory Organic Fillo dough.

For the cups:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Thaw the Fillo dough according to the package instructions. Once thawed, take 3 layers of dough and cut them into small circles - so that they fit into the muffin tray cups.
So, cut any number of circles as per your need and brush the top layer with some butter keep them in the muffin tray. Bake them for 15 minutes or light golden brown and crisp.
Remove from the oven and take the cups out of the tray and let them cool on a plate.

Filling:

Carrot - Julienned
Capsicum - cut into 1/2 inch pieces
Cabbage - shredded
Green chillies - 1 or 2 finely cut
Green onions or Scallions - 2 - finely chopped
Red pepper Flakes
Soy sauce
Salt - 2 tspns
Cilantro

They should retain little bit of crunch in them. Add cabbage, red pepper flakes, salt and mix well. Heat a pan, add oil and add carrots, capsicum, green chillies and fry them for 3 or 4 minutes. Add soy sauce and fry for 2 minutes. Finally add scallions and finely chopped cilantro and remove from stove. Spoon some filling onto each fillo cup and serve!

The filling sounds good, shri. I like anything made with phyllo or puff pastry. Welcome to food blogging.
