Ramadan Day 12 --- Iftar Food

Samosa

Chicken Samosa

I feel like samosas are a must have during ramadan. Over the years, I have come up with several different ways to make a samosa. Today, I made my samosas using lavash bread. The good thing about this recipe is that it allows you to have somewhat of a healthy samosa and prepare it in no time. For an even more healthier samosa, use whole wheat lavash bread and less oil. As you can see I don’t deep fry my samosa, I feel like the traditional samosas can be too oily. I hope you try my lavash version samosa. It never disappoints me.

The Recipe

1/2 tsp black pepper

7. Fold the lavash sheet horizontally down the middle and cut in half. Fold in half again and cut again. You will end up with four rectangular sheets. Do the same to the second sheet

8. Grab one of the cut lavash sheets and make a cone shape with it. Insert 2 spoons of the chicken filling inside to form triangle samosa and close using the flour paste made in step 6
