Also, add spinach and stir all the ingredients together—Cook for about 3 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  5. Meanwhile, divide the dough into four equal parts. Roll each piece into a rectangle of the size of about 12 x 10 inches.
  6. Add 3 tbsp of lamb mixture in the middle of the rectangle and spread it out. Add green onions, fresh mint, fresh parsley, ¼ crumbled feta, and some chopped tomato. Fold over the edges of the dough to seal. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.
