How to fold a samoosa


The samoosa pur is simple to fold. All you need are the strips, the filling of your choice and a flour and water mixture with a taai consistency to seal the deal.

Take one strip of pur and fold up and across making a wide cone. Stuff with your favourite filling and fold first over the gap and continue to make a tight triangle.Stick the corner down with your glue.

It is important to heat the oil well and then turn to a medium heat. Place samoosas in the heated oil and deep-fry on both sides until golden brown.

Mince Samoosas

1kg mince

3 large onions

2 Tablespoons


2 Tablespoons leaf masala

Three cloves garlic

Half a cup of chopped celery

Salt and pepper to taste

Place a pan on heat, cover just the bottom with water and add in chopped onion.

Steam until onion is transparent, then add turmeric, leaf masala, crushed garlic, chopped celery, salt and pepper add some water and steam for 5 minutes.

Add the mince, ensuring you cover for about 25 minutes until cooked through, remember to stir every 5 minutes.

Take off heat and strain excess sauce.

Let filling cool and add a tablespoon of olive oil.

Chicken Samoosas

1kg chicken breasts

Five bay leaves

1 Tablespoon

11- in-one

10 Peppercorns

Two tablespoons chopped dhanya

1 teaspoon each of crushed Garlic and ginger

Salt and pepper to taste

Half fill a pot with water and place on heat. Add whole chicken breasts, bay leaves, peppercorns.

Cook for 30 minutes, then strain away excess liquid. Allow chicken to cool down and then chop finely. Place pan on heat and add two tablespoons of sunflower/olive oil.

Fry the garlic, ginger and spices for 2 minutes, add the chicken and chopped dhanya.

Cheese Samoosas

Lots of grated cheese, preferably cheddar for flavour.

2 Green peppers, sliced thinly

2 Onions, sliced thinly

6 cloves of garlic crushed

2 Tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce

Salt and Pepper

Throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix with a fork.

The cheese will melt as soon as your samoosa hits the heat so stuff that triangle.
