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.
