How did the first day go, guys? Thankfully it wasn’t too bad for me. My husband and I always host an iftaar for friends the first day of Ramadan and thankfully it went swimmingly. Swimmingly. Yes, I used that word. Haha
Today, I am going to share recipe with you of quintessential Ramadan food – krispy keema samosas! They are perfect and the best way to start a meal. You know you’re in for something good when someone busts out with homemade samosas. Ultimate winning.
First, I used a bag of my freezer ground beef that I always have on hand. I let this defrost in the fridge overnight.
Next, I heated up a large, nonstick skillet or wok with two teaspoons of olive or vegetable oil over medium high heat.
Mix this all together and add in 1/4 cup of water and allow this simmer and cook away for five minutes over medium low heat. Afterwards, add in two tablespoons of chopped cilantro, and one teaspoon of chopped green thai chiles.
Now for our wrappers. I am using a samosa wrapper that I found at my local Indian store. You could also use wonton wrappers, but seeking out these specific Asian market wrappers is really worth the effort. Not this brand in particular, just wrappers in general.
There was a tear halfway down this roll, but no big deal, I just worked with it.
First, I place one scoop of the cooled keema mixture in the bottom right corner of my sheet.
Now, make 100,000,999 more. Just kidding. I like to freeze my samosas flat on a sheet tray for about 15-20 minutes and then pop them into a zip top bag and stash them into the freezer. You can cook them perfectly from their frozen state.
I hope you guys try out these samosas! They are easy, delicious, and not-so-nutritious. (They’re fried. Let’s be real)
