Spicy and crispy beef samosas are delicious with sweet chilli sauce or for a mezze lunch with grilled flatbread and hummus.

The spicy beef filling with cumin, coriander, chilli, garlic and pine nuts make these little morsels an absolute delight.

You can make the the beef samosa filling or samosas the day before to save you time on the day you would like to serve.

I make the mix in the morning and once the beef filling is cooled, I wrap in filo pastry. I brush the filo pastry with melted butter and wrap into triangles.

Once you make them, if you have extra, they freeze really well for another time.

Once you are ready to cook, pan fry the samosas in a little oil all the way around the samosa until golden brown, then bake in the oven for 5 minutes at 180°c.

For a healthier version, just make the beef filling mix and serve with lettuce cups rather than wrapping in filo pastry like the picture below.

Both versions are great.

Crunchy, sweet and crispy beef samosas are delicious served with grilled flatbread, creamy tahini hummus and PopUp Chef’s healthy tabbouleh salad.
