Chocolate Samosa for Kids
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.
