Chilli Beef Samoosas

Chili Beef Samoosas ~ Spicy, hot snacks ~ perfect to add to a savory platter #Samoosas #Snacks
I made SAMOOSAS !!  First time in my life, and I grew up on these delectable snacks.  
To be honest, after the first three I wanted to give up … I am a very impatient person and when I could not get the hang of folding the pastry immediately, my blood pressure shot up miles high!
BUT, once I got the fold right, it was easy going – remember to brush the pastry all over with water, before you start folding … and follow the instructions {on folding} on the pack.  Now, the next part I am typing in red because of personal experience – if you are used to working with chillies – skip it, otherwise please take note:
Use plastic gloves when chopping chillies !!!!  If you have sensitive hands, as I do, you will get CHILLI BURN – you can google it, it is true and it is sore. Washing my hands with Lemon Juice helped a little but the next day I still had a bit of burn.
Chilli Beef Samoosas

{recipe makes 50 – 60 samoosas}
1 TB Butter
1/2 Onion, finely chopped
1 Red Chilli, finely chopped

1.) Melt the Butter in a large pan – add the Onion, Chillies and Curry Leaves – saute until the Onions are soft – add the Ginger, Garlic and Masala – fry for 1 minute.
2.) Add the Ground Beef and cook until done and most of the moisture has evaporated – season to taste with Salt & Black Pepper – let the mixture cool for 30 minutes.
3.) Place filling on the Samoosa Pastry and fold as per the instructions on the pack {remember to brush with water}
4.) Deep fry in batches until all is done {about 1 minute per batch}
5.) Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Serve with a sweet chilli sauce – I used a Sweet Chilli Cream Cheese.
Enjoy this little hot snack and if you so wish, add some more chillies !
