Hi gloria,
I hope you do,they taste really good.

jeena,
Thank you for the comment.

meeso,
thank you,the recipe is easy to make,give it a try.

nabeela,
we call it in saudi arabia "sambosa" or "sambosec" and I think is a littel difference between sambosa & Samosa.
in south saudi they make the sambosa dough using whole wheat,and we make it in east side half with & half whole wheat,and the crust is not very thin.
sambosa is popular finger food in Saudi Arabia especially in ramadan.

SUper delicious. Can i make this with Phyllo pastry and make in the oven.
In India we make them with potato and peas or minced lamp etc and we call them Samosa

Arabic Bites said...

Happy cook,

Thank you so much for the comment,you can make it with Phyllo pastry and bake it in the oven, but it tast better with homemade pastry.

Aamena said...

Can you show how to fold the samosa? I have seen it in many books, but they all think that the folding is so easy it doesn't have to be shown...and I just don't get the triangular shape from my folding

Arabic Bites said...

Hi Chrisser,

I Promise you I will make post about how to fold the samosa.

Sayeeda said...

salaams, i was wondeirng do you happen to have the meat filling listed on the site for the samboosa.

Arabic Bites said...

Ahlan sayeeda,

We don't have meat filling listed on the blog for the sambosa.
but you can substitute the cheese with meat.
To make meat filling:
Sauté onion, stir, cook 5 minutes, Add meat, salt, spices , stir, cook, until meat brown.
* you can add mushrooms,Potato,parsley,scallions.

I hope this help you.
