Mix everything well and keep on flame for about a minute. Remove from gas and allow it to cool a little bit, say for about 5 minutes.
  2. Now take the square piece of the pastry puff sheet and put some of the potato mixture in the centre.

  3. Dip your finger in water and apply water on all the four sides of the sheet so that the sides can be stuck.
