SWEET SAMOSA | SWEET SOMAS RECIPE, SOMASI

Print Friendly and PDF
I learnt this sweet samosa recipe from my MIL.We used to make this for every diwali.It is very easy to prepare with a no cook, coconut, fried gram dal and sugar used as a simple stuffing. We call it as somas sweet or somasi.  It is also known as Karanji, meetha samosa in Hindi. Kids would love this for sure. We have made the shape using samosa cutter. You can use a fork or fold with hands to make nice swirls like chandrakala. ok, lets see how to make sweet samosa recipe with step by step pictures.

INGREDIENTS 
1 cup = 200ml
  • All purpose flour = 1/2 cup 
  • Semolina / rava – 1 tbsp
  • Ghee –2 tsp
  • Cooking soda – A big pinch
  • Sugar – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – A pinch
  • Water – 1/3 cup
For stuffing:
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Gram dal / pottukadalai – 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom seeds – 3 nos ( remove the skin & grind )

  • In the mean while , make the filling / stuffing. In a kadai , dry roast coconut for a minute till the wetness emanates.
  • In a mixer , take the dal , roasted coconut & cardamom seeds. Pulse it once or twice to make a coarse powder..

  • Now make a small poori ( should be slightly thick )and keep 2 tsp of filling in the centre. Close one side to make a semi circle.Seal the corner by pressing with ur finger ( dip ur fingers in water & seal it if needed). Now run the samosa spoon over the edges to make a design.. Discard the extras and set aside.

  • Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry on both sides till golden brown. It puffs up slightly like poori..Store in a box after it cools down.
