Pudachi Wadi - Coriander Rolls

As part of ICC (Indian Cooking Challenge), the challenge for this month was Coriander rolls, which is a special Maharashtrian snack which uses fresh coriander leaves as filling.The recipe is from Archana of Tried and Tasted Recipes.I have not made any changes to the original recipe except for adding some sugar to the tangy tamarind sauce.
The rolls turned out to be great and everyone in our family liked it a lot.The combination of sesame seeds, poppy seeds and coconut adds a wonderful flavor to this snack.Pefect for a week end evening snack
