    Divide the dough into eight equal portions and roll out into medium size rotis. Cut the rotis into halves.

    Apply water on one edge half and roll into a small cone. Reserve some chocolate mixture for garnishing and place a spoonful of the chocolate mixture from the remaining into the cone and seal to make a samosa. Similarly prepare the remaining.
