Has anyone ever made these and if so, can you share your recipe?

I made them one time - I used egg roll wrappers for the outside and just added some different spices to the ground beef. But I would really like to get a good recipe.

a woman i used to work with made them time and again to bring to work, and they were amazing! quite authentic - i haven't made them myself yet, but i hope to someday....

i think i posted this a while ago though too..

here is Shahida's Samosa Recipe!


She makes the samosas from a 'off the top of her head' recipe, so these measurements are guesstimates. It's pretty much all to taste, so have fun with it! they are SO GOOD!

Shahida’s Samosas

1 lb. ground beef, chicken or turkey (give a rinse before use)
1 tsp fresh ginger, ground
1 tsp fresh garlic, ground (TIP: mix ginger and garlic together to make a nice paste)
Salt to taste
1 tsp. (or more) ground cumin (to taste)
Ground green chilies (to taste)
Pastry (pre-made; set aside until end)

Cook all the above in a sauce pan until the meat is almost dry. DO NOT ADD ANY OIL OR WATER! You will have enough moisture from the meat!

Add:

Lemon juice (to taste)
1 ½ tsp garam masala

Cook these till dry, and then add to the meat mixture


Take mixture off heat; add a bunch of chopped cilantro (LOTS! Don’t be shy!), 2 medium chopped onions, and 1 bunch of green onions.

Let cool before filling the pastry.

Deep fry (NOTE: if you don’t have a deep-fryer, you can still D.F them by using a deep pot with some oil. Be VERY careful though!)

Serve with tamarind sauce.
