Notes

Filo pastry sheets are easily available in the stores. I got mine from Tesco UK, and these were vegan sheets. These are really really thin and delicate sheets of pastry dough, and need to be handled very very carefully, as they tear easily while handling.
These sheets dry out really quick, so you cannot take out the pastry sheets, and then leave them in open, to prepare other ingredients.
To make sure these do not dry out,  take out the sheets once all the ingredients are in place, and just when you are about to start using them. Once the sheets are out, cover them with a damp muslin cloth, so that these do not dry, and then prepare them into rolls.While you are using one sheet, keep the others covered.
