How to fold a samosa or a pastille

Use this method when cooking with filo or brick pastry. If you are using filo, make sure to brush a little melted butter on to the pastry. Cut the pastry into 3-5cm strips and then place a spoonful of filling in the bottom right corner of the pastry strip. Fold the pastry into a triangle to begin enclosing the filling. Continue folding triangles and then tuck the final edge inside the samosa to seal, trimming any excess pastry if necessary. Your samosas can then be cooked in the oven or in a hot frying pan.
