Traditional Hot Mezze
In a mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix together well with a fork or spoon
On a chopping board or clean worktop, take one triangle at a time and using a teaspoon fill the bottom of the triangle with a little filling in a line. Make sure to leave at least 1 cm of pastry either side
Use a pastry brush to brush on a little egg wash to the 3 corners and then fold in from the outside of the filling and then roll upwards to creat your 'cigarette' shaped boreks. Use a little more egg wash to make sure the point on the pastry is stuck down. Leave to the side and continue until all the filling is gone. TIP: Don't fill the pastry too much, a finger width amount is enough.
In a large frying pan over a medium heat, add in the oil, enough for shallow frying.
When the oil is hot, using kitchen tongs place the boreks in carefully (you may have to batch cook them) and fry for a couple of minutes, turning often to allow an even light golden colour all over
Carefully remove the boreks with the tongs and place onto a plate lined with kitchen paper (this will absorb any excess oil)
Serve straight away and enjoy hot or enjoy cold later.
For any boreks you make but don't fry straight away can be wrapped in parchment paper and covered in an airtight container or in foil and kept in the freezer for a few weeks. When you want to cook them, remove from the freezer and slow fry them on a lower heat to cook through and enjoy.
