This recipe uses either spring roll wrapper or Egg roll wrappers to save time rather the traditional pastry. They may be found in any Chinese store or in many groceries. These made be made ahead of time and frozen. Heat 2 Tbsp. of oil in deep skillet. Add onions, ginger and garlic. Cook few minutes without browning. Add curry and salt. Cook 30 to 60 seconds. Add water, peas and potatoes. Heat mixture thoroughly; combine well. Add coriander but do not cook. Cool completely. Separate wrappers individually. If difficult to separate, unwrap package and cover with a damp cloth. After a few minutes, top wrapper can be removed. Place tablespoonful of filling on wrapper. Brush edges with egg and fold over filling into a triangular shape. Place on baking sheet lined with a clean tea towel. Separate second wrapper and repeat. Unused wrapper can be refrozen if wrapped well. Heat 1 inch of oil in deep skillet. Cook in batches few minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Drain on a rack or paper towels. Serve with chutney as a dip if you wish. MAKES: approx. 24 Source: Marion Kane, The Toronto Star
