Recipe by Micheal 


samosa pastry (you can use tortillas or phyllo pastry, if using phyllo use 3 or 4 layers)

1/2 kg of ground beef

1/2 white onion, chopped 

1/2 teaspoon of Xawaash

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped 

1/2 cup of flour

1 cup water

2 tsp Oil 

Canola oil for frying



1. Heat up oil in medium saucepan on medium high heat. Saute the onions for 3 minutes till onions turns translucent, add ground beef and stir for 3 minutes.

2. Add xawaash and salt. Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes. Add a cup of water, cover and let it cook for another 5 minutes. Cook until browned all the way through.

3. In a small bowl, mix water and flour to make a thick paste, which will be used to seal samosas. Set aside.

4. Cut the samosa pastry into approx 6 cm wide and 30 cm long stripes, add filling and fold the sheet in a triangular form. Apply the thick paste to seal it together. 

5. In a large, deep pan, heat the canola oil to 350°F. Once the oil is at the correct temperature, carefully place 3-6 samosas in the pan. Fry for about 5 minutes, flipping once, golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
