3 steps to folding samoosas

Want to master this SA favourite? Here’s how you fold the perfect samoosa parcel for crispy, golden success.


It’s pretty simple if you just know where to start. Defrost your pastry, get some cornflour and your filling, and we’re ready to get started!

Step 1:

Mix a little flour and water together to create a paste.

Step 2:

Lay a strip of samoosa pastry down on a flat surface and place a teaspoon of
prepared filling onto the left-hand side of a pastry strip (you can find samoosa pastry in the
frozen food section at selected Pick n Pay stores).

Step 3:

Using the flour paste as glue, fold the bottom left corner up to the top to create
a triangle. Continue folding up in opposite directions until all the pastry is folded. Seal and
set aside.

Deep-fry in hot oil until golden and drain on kitchen paper. You can also use this
method with phyllo pastry and bake golden parcels, like the crowd-favourite spinach and
feta or spanakopita bites.
