An exciting snack with a clearly Oriental touch, the Cheesy Carrot and Celery Cigars will make an excellent starter, served simply with chilli sauce. The ingredients filling the cigars are very well planned, so that they work together to excite the taste buds! While soy sauce gives it an inimitable flavour, boiled noodles adds to the volume, and cheese keeps the ingredients together, also imparting an oh-so-gooey texture that everybody loves. Roll up the pattis and keep them ready, but deep-fry just before serving to retain the crispness.

Carrot and Celery is a weird combination but trust me it tastes wonderful.. Very little celery also gives a prominent flavour. The noodles gives a nice mouthfeel.. You will enjoy it.. These cigars tastes awesome with chilli sauce.

Beautiful blend of flavours inside that complement the crunchy exterior! Loved the carrot and celery combination with an array of other herbs. Really delicious!
