A delicious twist on the traditional Indian snack, these 4-Ingredient Nutella and Coconut Samosas make an impressive but easy dessert!
A popular Indian snack, samosas are known everywhere in the world.
Samosas are a fried or baked savoury pastry shaped in a triangular form with a filling of all sorts of spicy veggies or meat.
Over the years, I've tried a number of different versions but to be honest, I've never had sweet, chocolatey samosas so far.
So I've decided to explore new combinations and try something a little different, with some of my favourite ingredients.
These Nutella and Coconut Samosas bring together the famous chocolate spread Nutella®, banana and coconut flakes, for a delicious and quite unique treat the whole family will love.
They're such a perfect snack for a party, but just as good for a quick chocolate fix during the day. Because we all have chocolate cravings, right?
Sweet Samosas Ingredients
These chocolate samosas are very simple and ready in less than 30 mins. This awesome recipe only requires 4 main simple ingredients:
Nutella® (but you can also use homemade chocolate spread)
desiccated coconut flakes
samosa pastry leaves
You can make your own samosa dough, but to make things a lot quicker without compromising the flavour, you can go for shop-bought samosa sheets.
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 refrigerating your chocolate spread until quite solid, before proceeding with the recipe.
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.
Step 1. Start with one samosa pastry sheet, and fold it to form a triangle, just like in the picture above.
Make sure you keep the other sheets covered with a damp cloth, to prevent them from drying.
Step 2. Then roll the sheet in the shape of a cone and spread some flour paste to keep it well sealed.
Step 3. You'll get sort of a pocket, fill it up with a generous teaspoon of chocolate spread, a slice of banana and sprinkle with coconut flakes.
Step 4. Fold the top sheet over the pocket to make a triangle.
Step 5. Then finally spread some flour paste on the sheet edge and fold again to seal the samosa.
If you see that any of the angles are not sealed properly, just spread a little flour paste to secure it well.
Repeat the process with the remaining sheets.
Step 6. Arrange the samosas on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 15-17 mins, turning them on the other side half-way through cooking time.
Serve these mouthwatering Nutella and Coconut Samosas drizzled with chocolate and/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!
Crispy, over-indulgent and incredibly delicious, these Nutella and Coconut Samosas are totally addictive.
