3. Cut the dough in rectangles. Place some of the filling in the centre of the rectangular dough.

4. Fold the dough in half. Brush just a bit of water in the sides to help the pastel to close properly.

5. Use a fork to press the sides slightly so the borders are sealed.

6. Deep fry in hot oil (350ºF) until golden brown.
