Press lightly on the parcel to spread the mixture evenly inside.

Make all the parcels like this.

Stage 9 - 6 min.
Spinach brik parcels
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.
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.
A few minutes, once cooked.
