You want to prepare delicious Samossas at home. Samoussas TAÏLOU is happy to offer you one of its best recipes.

Preparation time: 1 hour

Cooking time: 5 min

For 50 Samossas

Ingredients for dough

  • 1 kg of flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 glass of water
  • 1 pinch of turmeric

Ingredients for stuffing

  • 500 g chicken breast
  • 100 g chopped green onions
  • 50 g parsley or chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt, pepper, green chilis


Place the flour, salt, and turmeric in a large bowl. Mix everything well and add water slowly until the dough reaches a hard consistency. Knead the dough well and let it rest 5 to 10 minutes. Then, shape the dough into balls of 80 to 90 g approximately and flatten them one by one in a circle about 12 cm in diameter.

Put a layer of oil between each piece of dough and stack 5 pieces at a time. Flatten again this layer of 5 dough pieces to strech it into a circle about 25 cm in diameter and cook it on a cast iron plate (or in a big Teflon pan).

Turn it over to cook the other side.

Scrub this dough and cut it into 5 x 15 cm stripes.

To make it easy, you can find ready-made dough for sale in the frozen section of supermarkets.


Cut the chicken breast into 1 cm cubes and put them in a container with green onions, parsley or coriander, and spices. Mix everything well.

Place a teaspoon of stuffing on the bottom half of the dough rectangle and make a cone, then fold down twice to wrap the stuffing in a triangle of dough. Glue the ends with a fairly sticky mixture of flour with water to prevent Samossas from opening during frying (see the Samossa folding technique below).

Heat oil to 180° in a large saucepan or deep fryer. Dip the Samossas in this oil and fry for about 5 to 7 minutes, turning them until the dough becomes golden brown.

Bon appétit ...
