  3. Cover the bowl and let the dough rest for 30-45 minutes.

  5. When the dough size doubles, roll it on a floured surface and cut it into equal rectangular pieces.
  6. Put one tablespoon of the cheese mix in the centre of the dough piece. Fold the edges to form a triangle or semi-circle.
  7. Beat the egg and brush the cheese rolls with it then sprinkle them with nigella seeds.
