If we can have Italian origins in the leadership of our democracy, we can also have pizza flavored samosas. There is no rule against it. And you will be surprised at how successful at least some of these combinations can be.

Summary

  • Cuisine: indian
  • Course: snack
  • Cooking Time: 45 mins

Ingredients

7 samosa leaves ( 21cm X 7 cm) 
100 grams cheddar cheese , grated
100 grams mozzarella cheese , grated
1.5 tablespoons ready made pizza sauce
2 tablespoons finely chopped capsicum
Plain flour + water , to make a smooth paste
Olive oil , to deep fry

Steps

  1. Mix together cheese, sauce and capsicum.
  2. Cut each samosa leaf into 3 squares of 7cm x 7cm dimension.
  3. Keep all samosa leaves covered except the piece you are working with so that they don’t dry out.
  4. Spoon 1 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture onto the centre of the square. Apply plain flour paste along all four edges of the square. Bring all four corners of the square together to enclose the filling. Press edges together to stick them. Don’t overwork the leaf or it may tear.
  5. Continue till all the leaves and cheese filling is used up.
  6. Heat oil in a wok on high flame. Once hot, lower the flame to medium. Drop in the samosas one by one without over crowding the pan. (Since they fry quickly, it would be better to use a small wok, and fry 2-3 samosas at a time). Press over lightly with a spatula so that they remain submerged in oil. Remove with slotted spoon when golden brown and transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  7. Serve your crisp samosas immediately.

Enjoy!
