Samosa filling

Fold each sheet of pastry  in half lengthways to give two layers and cut into strips measuring approx. 25 cm / 7 cm.

Add a tablespoon of filling on the pastry at the left end. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle. Glue the pastry ends moistening with a little bit of water.
Fry in hot oil, on each side, until golden brown (3-4 minutes).

Allow to drain on  kitchen paper to remove the oil excess.
