Somali Sambusas

Submitted By: SAFIYOSMOMMY, who says, "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...They are served during Ramadan, Weddings, Parties, or just because. A seasoned ground beef mixture is wrapped in a cone shaped package and [normally] deep fried. For a variation you can substitute shredded beef for ground beef."

Ingredients

    1 (14 ounce) package spring roll wrappers
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 pounds ground beef
    1 leek, chopped
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons ground cardamom
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon water, or as needed
    oil for pan-frying

Directions

1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, leek and garlic, and cook, stirring until the onions are transparent. Add ground beef, and cook until about halfway done. Season with cumin, cardamom, salt and pepper. Mix well, and continue cooking until beef has browned.
2. In a small dish or cup, mix together the flour and water to make a thin paste. Using one wrapper at a time, fold into the shape of a cone. Fill the cone with the meat mixture, close the top, and seal with the paste. Repeat until wraps or filling are used up.
3. Heat the oil in a heavy pan. Pan-fry the Sambusa a few at a time until golden brown. Remove carefully to drain on paper towels.

  • I will do this recipe but will use chicken breast and use olive oil spray to brown them instead of frying to cut fat calories. I use olive oil spray to "fry" foods and like the results. - 4/16/11
