Use up the rest of the filling like this.

Stage 10 - 15 min.

Pour 50 ml oil into a large frying pan on medium heat. There should be a shallow depth of oil all over the pan to cook the rolls properly.

When the oil is hot, cook the rolls evenly all over, turning them with tongs if possible (the easiest way).

Do be careful not to let them brown too much. This can happen quickly, so you must keep an eye on the rolls from the time they go into the pan.

Stage 11 - 25 min.

Stage 12
