Maldivian egg rolls called bikseemiyaa make a scrumptious appetizer. This treats were a real surprise. They are often made with tuna as well. This version was simply a hard boiled egg with some shredded cabbage, onion, curry leaves and a hot green chili. They are wrapped up in an egg roll wrapper and deep fried. We devoured them and I have made them several times since. A quick and easy appetizer that is a guaranteed winner.
