Recipe by rabz of Dhaka, BD

These types of samosas r very famous in the Arab world and is appreciated by others too.

Ingredients vegetarian 8 servings

    • Ready made filo pastry sheets cut into 4 long strips & covered with a wet cloth.
    For the filling:
    • 1 cup almond
    • 1/4 cup walnuts
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar or caster sugar
    • 1/4 cup raisins 
    • 1 tbsp orange blossom water
    • oil for deep frying
    For coating:
    • 1 jar of honey = 2 cup honey


    1. In a food processor combine the filling ingredients & process to a fine crumbly texture.
    2. Bring out in a bowl & set aside.
    3. Take each strip of filo & make triangle shapes (like samosas) fill them with the filling & fold then seal.
    4. Keep on doing so until done with all the sheet strips (make sure samosas r always covered with a wet cloth or it will go dry).
    5. Mean while heat the honey & set aside till warm temp is acquired.
    6. Heat oil & fry the samosas till golden and crisp.
    7. Strain & dip each samosa (to give it a nice glaze) into the warm honey & lift straight away.
    8. Put them on a serving plate & serve when ever desired.
    * make sure not to soak the samosas in honey just dipping them so that they remain crisp for hours. U can also oven bake them instead of frying if u avoid oily food.
