Easy Sri Lankan Malu Paan (Bread Rolls with a Savory Fish filling)

These bread rolls are a favorite treat for picnics and sporting events.  They pack up easy and are enjoyable hot out of the oven or even at room temperature.  The filling here can be exchanged for any type of filling you like.  You can make the fish filling suggested here or try something new.  Here are some suggestions:  savory meat filling with potatoes, barbecue meat filling, vegetable filling, pizza filling or even a spicy onion filling called Seeni Sambal.   The fillings are endless, but the method is the what is quick and easy.

This is what makes the bread rolls so easy-- Pillsbury Grands Biscuits.  I am not sure if they are available world wide, but if they are available to you, I hope you try them out in this type of recipe.


The trick is to roll the biscuit out into a flat round with a rolling pin.

Fill your flat round dough with about a tablespoon of filling towards one end of the round.  If you want to try the fish filling in the recipe here is the link to the filling:  Sri Lanka Fish Cutlets

Fold over the dough and seal the edges with a fork.

Cover each roll with an egg wash on top before baking .  An optional step is to sprinkle some  un-toasted sesame seeds before baking.  Bake on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. 

 Yields 16 bread rolls.  Enjoy.
