   Sift flour into a bowl. Make a well in center and add
   egg. Gradually stir in milk and beat well until
   smooth. Stir in cold water and beat well. Pour batter
   into a pitcher.
   Heat a little oil in a small skillet and pour off
   excess. Pour a little batter into skillet, swirling

   thin coating. Sook until underside is golden, then
   turn pancake out of pan (do not cook other side).
   Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil pan each
   time, to make 8 pancakes.
   Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a saucepan. Add onion,
   ground beef, carrots, parsnip and curry powder. Cook
   gently 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add tomato
   paste and mix well. Blend cornstarch with a little
   stock. Add remaining stock to ground beef mixture and
   bring to a boil. Add cornstarch mixture and cook 2
   minutes, stirring constantly. Simmer mixture 10

   over mixture and then fold remaining top and bottom
   edges over to cover filling. Brush with egg and fold
   pancakes in half. Chill 1 hour.
   Half fill a deep fat fryer or saucepan with oil; heat
   to 350'F. (175'C.) or until a 1/2 bread cube browns
   in 40 seconds. Fry folded pancakes, 4 at a time, 2-3
   minutes or until golden brown and heated through.
   Drain on paper towels. Garnish with carrot strip, if
   desired, and serve hot.
