Fold bottom corner over filling to cover, then fold over right & left corners. Roll over once to enclose filling. Brush sides & top of triangle with flour & water mixture. Fold over to seal. Cover filled rolls with a damp cloth while preparing the rest of the rolls. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add 1 to 2 tb oil.
