Mix flour and salt together in a cooking bowl. Add half a cup of water to the mix, and then use your hand to knead the flour. The flour will look like crumbs; when this happens add a little water each time, and knead until the dough is made and the water is finished. If you need to add a little bit more water please do so, but do not let the dough get sappy and soft.
Now tear off pieces of dough about the size of a golf ball and place them in the same bowl (approximately 30 balls) and add cooking oil to cover the dough. Let stand for 5-6 hours.

When it’s time remove the balls from oil one at a time and place it on a board and roll the dough and add 1 tbsn of filling. Now wrap the two sides then bottom and top to make a squre shape as shown in the pictures.
Heat a non stick pan and coat it with a little oil and add the wraps 3 or 4 at a time and brown all the sides and enjoy.

For the meat filling follow the patties mixture recipe.
