Kinda sounds like it, in the way that all those fry breads are similar or ravioli and cheese blintzes and what not are similar...

^Now I have you doing it, Mav! Lol.
Exactly!!!! However, I think blintzes are close cousins to cannelloni. Andy was married to an Italian woman and she loved blintzes because she related them to cannelloni.

Not a very well explained and articulated recipe.

The most popular pea stuffed recipe is for kachori. That's the only one I know that I would classify as totally "Indian"

If anyone is interested they can google for kachori recipe.

I make mine as follows:

I make a dough using a mixture of wheat, white, semolina and gram flour and good amount of oil. It's almost like a rich pastry dough but without shortening.

I make a filling with peas (you can use frozen ones), spices (cumin, corrainder, fennel, black pepper, green chilies, cilantro, sugar, lime juice). Ensure you cook this down until the peas are a mush and dry.

Let it cool.

Make small discs (1 inch) from the dough, fill with a tiny bit of pea mixture. Fold it inwards, press and lightly flatten into 1 inch discs with your hands. You can make all of these then fry and enjoy with a dipping sauce of your choice.

I like to make a tamarind sauce or a green mint and cilantro sauce.
