Ramadan Day 6
Samosas are the most famous snack in Malabar. These are not large samosas like the veggie ones, Malabar meat samosas are small, petite kind of samosas. They look really cute and you’ll need to et atleast 5-6 to fill your tummy.
Samosas are nicked as Triangle Chicken by my daughter! For her even when i make cutlets i make in triangle shape otherwise she wont eat them! And they should be perfect for her!
I make the meat mix and freeze them in small bags. Just take one bag at a time and thaw. Meat samosas can be made of chicken or beef or mutton. I havn’t tried mutton samosas till today but one of my friend was raving about it.
Its easy to prepare and very tasty to eat!
THe recipe for the meat mix
Boneless Chicken or beef – 1 lb
red chili pwdr – 1 tbsp or add more or less according to your taste
turmeric pwdr – 1/2 tsp
oil – 3-4 tbsps
onions – 3 medium sized finely chopped
ginger garlic paste – 1 tbsp
corriander pwdr – 1.5 tbsp
curry leaves,corriander leaves, mint leaves – a small bunch chopped finely.
How to proceed :
Cook chicken, red chilli powder, turmeric and salt.
Shred the cooked chicken and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add onions. When the onions are brown add ginger garlic paste and green chillies to it. Fry for another 3-4 mts and ad the shredded chicken, corriander powder and chopped leaves to it.
FOr the wrapper:
All purpose flour is usually used in Malabar but i use wheat flour
salt to taste
knead just like you make the Roti Aata. Divide the aata into small lemon size balls.
Roll the balls into a roti. It should be thin and not so big. Because we are going to make petite samosas not big ones. Cut into 4 pieces. Take a piece and fold the rounded edge into a cone. Fill in the meat mixture. Close the samosa with the pointed edge.
Deep fry in oil and enjoy!!
My Samosas are going for the Ramadan Event!
