Advice on needing in the video below;

Getting it all together:

  • Roll dough out into half-cm (or slightly thicker)
  • Cut out (using a wide mug / glass ) … dip the rim of the glass/mug in flour to stop the dough from sticking to it when cutting the circles out out
  • Enlarge the circles with your hands and put some filling in there
  • Close up by bringing all the edges to a central point and pinch so it doesn’t come apart
  • Cook in hot oil (low-medium heat) for roughly 4-5 mins, so it’s ideally light-brown on the outside, and cooked right through
