Chocolates are always one of the most tempting items when it we talk about foods and specially when it comes to children. So during this festive season I though why not give my daughter something new which is a combination of both Indian and western dishes, so the first thing which came to my mind is chocolate samosa. And I am very sure your children’s will also like this.
- Plain flour – 1 cup
- Oil – 2 tsp
- Sugar – ½ cup
- Cardamom power – 2 pinch
- Chocolate chips/bars for filling
- Take a bowl, mix flour (maida) and oil, with help of water prepare the dough and knead thoroughly.
- Make sure the dough should not be too hard nor too soft. Cover and keep it aside for 10-15 to let it settle down.
- After 10-15 minutes the dough is ready, press it gently to make it smooth.
- Take small portion from the dough and roll them into small balls.
- Now roll each one of them using a rolling pin of approximately 3-3 ½ inches in diameter.
- Apply little bit of oil, to each ball and roll them into small oblong shapes.
- Cut each into halves and shape them into cones.
- Take 4-5 piece of chocolate in the cones and fold the edges a bit.
- Apply water on the edges to seal the samosa.
- Repeat the same process for rest of the dough balls and keep them aside for 5 to 6 minutes. This will also allow the samosa pocket to seal properly.
- Heat oil in a pan/kadai, deep fry samosa on medium heat till it turns golden brown.
- Add ½ cup sugar with 1 ½ cup of water in another pan to make sugar syrup. Cook it until all the sugar dissolves into the water and become little thick (approx. 4-5 minutes).
- When the syrup is ready, turn off the flame, add cardamom powder into it and allow it to cool down for few minutes.
- Dip the fried Chocolate samosa, 2-3 at a time into the sugar syrup for few seconds and transfer to another plate.
- Chocolate samosa is ready, allow it to become cold before you serve.
