This is a Somali recipe. I learned it by watching my Somali friends around Ramadan and I was able to make my own variation. They are really good and I can't stop eating them. They are served during Ramadan, Weddings, Parties, or just because. A seasoned ground beef mixture is wrapped in a cone shaped package and deep fried. For a variation you can substitute shredded beef for ground beef.
Spring roll wrappers are stuffed with a seasoned beef and pine nut mixture and wrapped into triangular sambusa to make this meaty appetizer.
Beef and potatoes are the main ingredients folded inside these wonderful deep fried samosas. Chicken livers may be substituted for beef, if you choose. My friend from Bangladesh gave me this savory, spicy recipe. You just can't buy better in the shops.
Three cheeses are stuffed in a buttered pastry wrapper with cilantro and garlic for a savory, Middle Eastern-inspired snack.
Coriander, garam masala, and cumin are just a preview of the many spices that flavor these beef samosas made with wonton wrappers.
Ok, I didn't completely love it, but it wasn't the recipe's fault :) I had had sambusas before and I loved them so much I tried to make them at home. They didn't taste quite like the ones I had had before but who's to say which are more like the real thing! I think I may have gotten the wrong wrappers so they were a little thicker and tougher than what I remember. Also, I need to remember to drain the meat next time as mine were full of grease (from frying and from the meat). The flavor was still nice and I'm giving it five stars because my picky father-in-law and my picky four-year-old both loved them. Combined with a peri-peri sauce, the recipe for which I had found online, they were really quite good. I didn't quite get the folding instructions so I folded mine like envelopes. That didn't affect the taste :)
Cheeseburger wontons are just that: wonton wrappers filled with ground beef and cheese. Your whole family will love them!
Bacon-wrapped little smoked sausages bake in brown sugar with a pinch of cayenne pepper to make sweet and savory appetizer bites.
Beef deli slices are wrapped around a cream cheese and olive filling creating a 'meat pillow' appetizer ready in 15 minutes or less.
I really like this recipie... this is my favorite dish during Ramdan, and actually all around the year. I like to use regular tortillas for the wrapper. I cut them in half, and fold them into a cone, and seal them with the same paste. The tortilla doesnt tear as easily, and cooks up really great. Instead of 2 pounds of meat, I use one pound of meat, and one pound of diced boiled potatoes. I cook it the same way, and just add also a small amound of curry powder and garama masala to give it any extra kick. If you want to, you can freeze them right after making them, and when you want to make just a couple, pop them in the microwave for about a minnute or two (to make sure the inside is not frozen) and then fry them to finish the cooking. I like to make big batches, and enjoy them for lunch during the week! They also make a good fast-breaker! Enjoy!
