Recipe Info

  • Yield : 12
  • Prep Time : 60m
  • Cook Time : 30m
  • Ready In : 1:30 h


  • 375g flour
  • 125ml water
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 7 tbsps butter, melted
  • 2 Irvine’s Chicken Breasts, finely chopped
  • 1⁄2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1⁄4 tsp cumin
  • 1⁄2 tsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Irvine’s Egg, whisked
  • Black sesame seeds for topping


Step 1

In a bowl, mix together flour, water and salt until smooth. Divide the dough into two parts.

Step 2

Roll out each dough ball into a very thin rectangle. Brush each of the dough rectangles with melted butter. Stack them together and brush with butter again.

Step 3

Roll up the dough rectangle into a log, keeping it fairly tight as you go. Cover with plastic and put in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Step 4

Place the Irvine’s Chicken in a bowl, add the onion, coriander and cumin. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Cut the dough into 12 pieces. Put each dough piece cut side up and gently roll out into a circle about 5cm in diameter.

Step 6

Place the filling in the centre of each circle. Dip your finger tips in flour. Bring two sides of a circle together, pinch tightly to seal and then pinch the third side to form a pyramid. Make sure all the edges are sealed well.

Step 7

Preheat oven to 190°C. Place samoosas sealed side down on a baking sheet, previously covered with parchment paper.

Step 8

Brush samoosas with the egg and sprinkle with black sesame seeds.

Step 9

Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot.
