Chocolaty Samosa

A Samosa is a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas, lentils, ground lamb or chicken. The size, shape and consistency may vary, but many versions are triangular. Samosas are often accompanied by chutney. They are a popular appetizer or snack in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Southwest Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, the Mediterranean, the Horn of Africa, North Africa, and South Africa.

If the samosa comes with a surprise, what will be your reaction? Here is one of my crazy idea with chocolates, which we had in a week day office-return snack. The first bite, changed our tired mood. Hope you like it.


For Cover:
1 cup all purpose flour (Maida)
Water to Knead dough
2tbsp oil
Little salt
1/4th tsp. Ajwain (optional)

For Stuffing:
Coconut - grated


For Cover:
1. Mix all the ingredients (salt, oil, ajwain) except water.
2. Add a little water at a time.
3. Pat and knead well for several times into a soft pliable dough.
4. Cover it with moist Muslin cloth and keep aside for 15 minutes.

For Stuffing :
1. Heat the chocolate in a pan & when it becomes liquid add grated coconut.

To Proceed :
1. Make small rolls of dough and roll it into a 4"-5" diameter circle.
2. Cut it into two parts like semi-circle.
3. Now take one semi circle and fold it like a cone. Use water while doing so.
4. Place a spoon of filling in the cone and seal the third side using a drop of water.
5. Heat oil in a kadhai and deep fry till golden brown (fry on a medium flame).
6. Serve samosa hot with ice cream.
