  • Confectioner's sugar/Powdered sugar - 2 ½ Tablespoon

  2. Place about 1 or 1 ½ tablespoon of the filling on one side of the circle, keeping edges empty. Apply little water, on the edges using your fingertip.
  3. Trim the extra edges, if any. Slightly fold the edges towards the centre using your fingers. Then press the folded edges using the tip of a fork. Make sure the edges are completely sealed otherwise they will open while frying.
