  • Using the ready-made filo pastry, take each layer and brush with the melted butter. Fold each side inwards lengthways, buttering on each fold, so you have a long thin strip
  • Put 1 rounded teaspoon of your chosen filling at the end of the strip, leaving a 1cm border
  • Fold up the samosa by taking one corner and folding diagonally, then repeat on alternate sides until the pastry is all folded
  • Seal the edge with butter and brush the whole samosa with butter for a golden colour
  • When all your samosas have been made, place in a pre-heated oven at 180˚C for about 10 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp
  • Serve with your favourite chutneys
