This is so exciting! I first saw Sambosa bread at my friend, Sultana's site and made them but like her, I used meat and vegetable filling. I didn't know I could put a sweet filling too! I will definitely try it with the sweet filling. Thank you for sharing this.

These samosa helwa look like such a lovely snack. The filling sounds really tasty and they look like they should be in a shop window the way they are presented. :-)

You know my husband is from Algeria. We have the same thing and they call it sama. The only thing is the filling is different. They use either walnuts, almonds or roasted unsalted peanuts. Then they mix it with orange blossom water and cinnamon. Soo I can't wait to try it with hail and a good cup of gahwa.

Salams, Do you use phyllo or eggroll wrappers for the outside?
