    8. Remove and keep aside to cool.
    9. Now take the prepared dough onto a floured board and roll it out into a thin sheet.
    10. Cut rounds of about 10 cm diameter with a saucer.
    11. Put a tablespoon of the cooked prawns on one half of the rounds and fold the other half over.
    12. Seal the edges by dampening with a little water.
    13. Prepare the puffs in this way till all the dough and the prawns are used up.
    14. Make indents with a fork to seal the edges.

    19. Serve hot.
