Donair Samosa

Oh yes! I am taking full credit for this. I was so upset when pizza places came out with the donair egg roll, I know not quite the same but very close. You see in my mind I had invented the Donair Samosa. Passing it around and sharing to everyone around me for years before the donair egg roll came out. I’m still slightly disappointed.

There was no recipe on the net. Even now I don’t think you can google Donair Samosa and find a recipe. Because this is my own creation and Really Good. I was even reluctant to share it here because it is so popular among my circle. Any time I made them they didn’t last long at all. I often get requests to make these again.

However. I am going to share it with you for your personal use. Let’s get into the Ingredients of a Donair Samosa.

Donair Meat

This recipe uses JAH Halifax Donair Spice.

Optionally you can make the standard recipe as mentioned in the Donair Meat Post. Under Standard Donair Meat. Just adjust the amounts to your preference. It won’t be quite as good but is sufficient enough to do the job.

The Donair meat is cut into smaller pieces for easier stuffing of the Donair Samosa and combined with everything below.

Donair Sauce

Samosa Dough

You also need Samosa Wrappers. This is portioned into 60 g Dough Balls. Then rolled out flat into a circle and the circle is cut in half to create a semi-circle. Stuffed and Deep Fried until Golden Crisp.

Check out the Samosa Wrapper post which shows how to fold these too.

Only Diced Onions & Tomatoes if you choose. Included in the filling or served on the side.

Use a High Moisture Mozzarella Cheese blend that is made up of 3 parts Mozzarella Cheese & 1 Part Shredded Provolone Cheese. It works extremely well with Donairs.

You can also add a bit of Cheddar Cheese if you’d like.
