Most North African & Middle Eastern countries have a version of these. In Algeria they are known as Bourek, in Turkey; Borek, in Morocco; Cigars, Brik or Bourek etc.... I have a recipe posted for the Algerian version filled with spiced ground chicken & preserved lemon. These rolls are a little bit labour intensive but once you get into the swing of it the time passes quickly enough! This particular recipe is by Dalila Amdouni -- the personal cook to a wealthy Parisian family living in Tunisia. Although the recipe states using uncooked prawns, I prefer to flash fry them in a pan until they have JUST turned opaque - no more a minute or two. (if you are new to making rolls, here is a step by step -in photos- demo for you:
