A exciting twist on the traditional Indian snack, these Homemade Nutella and Coconut Samosas make an impressive but easy dessert to wow your guests!
A popular indian snack, samosas are known everywhere in the world. It’s a fried or baked savoury pastry shaped in a triangular form that is usually stuffed with all sorts of spicy veggies or meaty filling.
Over the years, I’ve tried a number of different versions but to be honest, I’ve never had sweet samosas so far. So I’ve decided to explore new combinations and try something a little different, with some of my favourite ingredients.
These Homemade Nutella and Coconut Samosas bring together my all-time favourite homemade version of nutella ( which is a million times better than store-bought and made with natural ingredients), banana and coconut. All together these samosas make a great snack for parties, picnics or simply to satisfy your chocolate cravings. Because we all have chocolate cravings, don’t we?
You can make your own samosa dough, but to make things a lot quicker without compromising the flavour, I always use Gourmosa Samosa Leaves. Made of wheat flour, water, vegetable oil and salt, there are no nasty additives and are totally oven-friendly, for a great and healthier result.
These Homemade Nutella and Coconut Samosas are very simple and ready in less than 30 mins. This awesome recipe only requires 4 main simple ingredients: homemade nutella, dessicated coconut, a banana and of course samosa leaves. Other than that, you just need to combine some all-purpose flour and water to make a thick paste that will help you seal the samosas. To avoid leaking while baking, I also recommend to refrigerate your nutella until quite solid.
There are different techniques to make samosas, I’ll show you mine but of course if you use a different method, just go for it.
Start with one samosa sheet, and fold it like it’s shown in the picture. Make sure you keep the other sheets covered with a dump cloth, to prevent them from drying.
Then roll it in the shape of a cone and spread some flour paste to keep it well sealed. You’ll get a sort of pocket, fill it up with a generous teaspoon of nutella, a slice of banana and sprinkle with coconut.
Fold the top sheet over the pocket to make a triangle. Then finally spread some flour paste on the sheet edge and fold again to seal the samosa. If any of the angles is not sealed properly, just spread a little flour paste to secure it well. Repeat the process with the remaining sheets.
Arrange the samosas on baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake it for 15-17 mins, turning them on the other side half-way through cooking time.
Serve these mouthwatering Homemade Nutella and Coconut Samosas drizzled with chocolate or dusted with confectioner sugar.
Or indulge yourself, and dip these awesome little guys in warm melted chocolate, for a glorious treat NONE will be able to resist!
Look at that! I’m totally drooling all over again just by looking at these pictures!
