Sausage Rolls

Hum rahe ya na rahe kal,

pal, yaad aayenge ye pal…

My friends have presented me with some of the most beautiful and craziest moments of my life. As life takes on a quick pace, the memories of laughing together, dividing a tiny piece of chocolate into 9 tiny bits, gossiping about who is with whom, lengthy discussions that wound into the night regarding the facts of life , cussing at each other, failed attempts to get our hands on the ‘Murder’ CD that made its rounds in hostel, shopping for jewellery and clothes, the surprise birthday parties, helping each other find the right shade of lipstick, are some of the few things that bring a smile to my face. Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if we could get together once more, spend a day without anything to worry us, be totally and absolutely happy and carefree?

If there ever be such an occasion, I’ll make these sausage rolls, because whats a get together without lots of food for us food lovers? What will you make?

Spicy Sausage Rolls

To a group of girls who cried themselves silly during the farewell party for their seniors in college, as it hit them that they would also have to bid each other good bye within a short year’s time. To friendship, to us.

Recipe

(I saw absolutely delicious looking rolls here and I just had to make them. The rolls I made look nowhere as good, but they were quite delicious.)
