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.

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.
