Sweet Samosas for a weekend teatime treat!

Sweet samosas are nothing strange on this blog, after all my chocolate samosas hardly require recipe, but they are quite legendary by this time and whenever I make them, family and friends love them!

Sweet Samosas are not strange in the Indian cuisine and you especially find them around Divali stuffed with coconut and typical Indian spices. Filings like date and nut, pumpkin fritter with cinnamon and custard  or cherries come to my mind and I think I will definitely try very soon!

Around this time of the year however, there is a slight chill in the air and we all have Easter in mind and with that all the warm spices and fruit you will normally find in Hot Cross Buns.  I wanted to put those flavors in little sweet samosas to enjoy with an strong espresso or maybe a cup of tea around teatime, just to ease of the chill a little. If you are very adventurous, you can try your hand at making your own sweet samosas from scratch, but I used ready made samosa wrappers or pur as it it is also known as. I have two words of advice when making sweet samosas or savory samosas….. make sure you fold it properly, so that the filling does not leak into your oil and maybe more importantly… MAKE ENOUGH! These sweet samosas are so addictive and literally fly off the plate!

Apple, Almond and Sultana Samosas

makes 20


250 ml water
100 ml sugar
2 ml salt
zest and juice of half a lemon
3 large Golden delicious apples – peeled and diced
5 ml cinnamon
3 ml fine cloves
2 ml fine nutmeg
125 ml Safari Sultanas
1 egg – lightly beaten
20 samosa wrappers (pur)
300 ml vegetable oil for deep frying
45 ml icing sugar


Place a pot on the stove and add the water, sugar, salt, lemon zest, all the spices and peel and slowly bring to the boil. Add the apples and cook for 12-15 minutes or until most of the water has evaporated and the apples are soft. Add the sultanas and cook for 1 minute to soften the sultanas. Remove the mixture from the pot and allow it to cool. When you are ready to make the samosas, get the egg wash and apple filling ready. Now place a samosa wrapper on a flat surface and then take a teaspoon of the apple filling and place it on the bottom end of the samosa wrapper. Now start folding the wrapper in a criss-cross fashion until you have a triangle samosa. Use the egg wash to close the last flap of the wrapper to prevent the samosa unfolding while frying.
Heat the oil in a small pot and when the oil is hot, fry the samosas until golden brown. Dust with icing sugar and serve.

    Oh Wow, I normally buy a pack of 100 wrappers and take a day to make a few different types of Samoosa’s (chicken, veg and beef) which I freeze and then fry when needed… This would be a great addition to the list especially as a dessert when unexpected guests pop in.
    Thanks 🙂
