Sweet Samosa Roll with Apple Filling
Sev ke Meethae Samosa Rolls
This idea came to me from apple and cinnamon pancakes that I was making one day. You can use other sweet filling like the one in Gunjia. You can make your own Puff Pastry, but I use ready-made these days!
2-3 cooking or dessert apples.
2-3 tbs. sugar, adjust to taste
1/4 tsp. cinnamon powder
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Ready made puff pastry
Peel, core and chop apples into small cubes.
Place all filling ingredients in a bowl, stir and microwave at full, for 6-8 minutes, stirring halfway once. They should be soft, but not mushy. Allow to cool completely.
Heat oven to 400º F or 200º C (follow instructions on the packet of the pastry).
Roll out pastry thinly.
Place samosa filling in the centre of the pastry along its entire length, like a big sausage.
Brush one edge of the pastry with a little water or water-flour mix.
Fold both edges towards the centre, covering the filling and overlapping each other. Press gently and seal.
Cut into small sausage rolls, each one approximately 2 inches long.
Place on a baking tray, sealed edge facing down and brush the surface with milk.
Bake in the centre of the heated oven for 15 minutes or so. Oven times vary, so keep an eye on the rolls.
Serve with vanilla ice-cream or custard.
You can make these samosas with filo pastry as well.
