Spinach-Feta Rolls

Had a box of Feta cheese bought 2/3 months before.  I have never used/tasted feta cheese before. So, i just cut open the box and took a small piece to taste  it. Ohhhhhhhhh!!!! My God, it was damn salty!!!!!!!!! i didnt expect it to be this salty, seriously!!! Just thanked god,for giving me the thought to taste it before i used it!!!!
Now coming to the recipe. This recipe is an inspiration from Priya's Cheese Palmiers and Raks's Vegetable Puff.  Both make a great evening snack, So i just mixed and matched both and tried this Spinach-Feta Rolls. Came out great. 

Ingredients
1 bunch Palak
1 large potato,Peeled and boiled.
2 medium-sized onions, finely chopped
1 1/2 - 2 tsp red Chilli powder
1 tsp Ginger-garlic paste
2-3 tbsp Feta Cheese (No Salt added to the Filling, since feta cheese has enough salt!!!!!)
hing,turmeric each a pinch

Method
Wash, Blanch and finely chop the Palak. Mash the Potato. Heat oil in a wok, crackle cumin seeds, add hing and turmeric. Add Onions and saute Till translucent. Add ginger-garlic paste. Add Mashed potato, Red Chilli powder. Cook in a low flame, to avoid burning of masalas, sprinkle water. When the masalas are mixed well, add chopped palak, mix well and Cover and cook in a slow flame for 10 minutes. Open the lid and stir in between. 
When the rawness of the masalas escapes, add the cheese and Mix well. Take it off the flame. Let it cool.
Preaheat the oven to 190C. Roll the Pastry Sheets to not-so thick/not-so thin Discs. Place 2 tbsp of Spinach-Feta Filling and roll it and seal the ends by pinching it. Make 4-5 rolls, Brush some oil on top.  Bake it for 40-45 minutes. Enjoy with Tomato Sauce.
