    To cook the parcels, heat 6 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan on high heat.

    When very hot, add the parcels and fry until browned all over.

    Serve without delay.

Remarks:

You can also deep fry these parcels. This is very quick but, unfortunately, raises the fat content.



If you can't find brik pastry, you can use filo instead.
