Assemble and fry the ravioli:

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll it out with a rolling pin to a very thin thickness.
Cut the dough into 5-inch squares.

To seal the ravioli, lightly brush two of the edges of the square with water and fold over the other two edges.

Press firmly to seal, making sure not to use too much water and letting dry before frying.

Heat the frying oil in a deep frying pan.
Fry the ravioli until golden brown.
