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

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.

Step 4: 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.
