Pour the blended mixture into a small saucepan on medium heat, then using a wooden spoon or spatula, continuously stir while cooking. You will see small clumps start to form as you do and at about the five minute mark your mixture should turn into one big gooey mass of cheese. Cook for an additional 30 seconds to one minute to ensure everything is firmed up.

4

To assemble place a samosa pastry sheet vertically on a cutting board or plate and start by adding a light wash of water using a pastry brush - this helps the edges stick together better (depending on how dry/moist your sheets are you may be able to skip this step).

5

Add about 1-2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture to the far right corner, then using the bottom right "point" fold the pastry over the filling in a triangle shape. Then take the top right point of that triangle and fold horizontally, alternating the previous two steps until you have a triangle shaped parcel, sealing down the final flap.
