Step 1:

Fry The Onions

Heat the 4tbsp of oil in a large frying pan. Put the onion in and stir fry gently for 1 minute over a medium heat.

Step 2:

Add Spices and the Meat

Add the spices and salt and fry for a minute, then add the meat.

Step 3:

Cover and Cook

Stir, cover and cook on a low heat for 20 minutes until the meat is cooked.

Step 4:


Stir occasionally and add a little more oil if the pan seems to be too dry.

Step 5:

Let Cook

When done, check for salt and let the mixture cool.

Step 6:

Make the Samosa Cone

On a separate work surface, take a sheet of the ready made samosa pad or 2 sheets of Filo pastry and create a triangle cone by folding the edges around themselves and sealing the edges with the beaten egg using a pastry brush; leave one side open (this is to add the filling in the samosa cone/ triangle)

Step 7:


Put 1 to 1 ½ tsp of the minced lamb filling into the samosa triangle. Lift corners and pinch them together, continue along the seam towards the corner. This should form a sealed triangle/ cone shape.

Step 8:

Deep Fry

Deep fry the samosa gently until it is golden in colour on each of its sides.
