Mix maida with water to make a paste that will help bind the samosa patti together.

Take samosa patti, place it horizontally, put some maida and water paste and then place another samosa patti over it vertically making a plus (+) sign.

Next add the chicken filling, coleslaw and mozzarella cheese in the middle.

Also, add some chili garlic sauce and green onion leaves and then using water-maida paste, fold the samosa patti forming a square.
