How to do Comorian Samoussas ?

1-Roast the bell pepper in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 180° on the grill.

2-During this time, cook the minced meat in a frying pan without any fat, then crush it with a fork

3-Blend 1 onion and 1 clove of garlic until you get a purée, then add it to the preparation.

4-Cook the mixture, stirring regularly, then add salt, pepper, paprika, massala, lemon juice and soya, and set aside

5-Remove the skin from the roasted bell pepper and cut it into small pieces

6-Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the second onion cut into cubes, then add the grated carrot and the grilled bell pepper cubes (fry for 3/4 min while keeping stirring)

7-Unroll the phyllo dough, you can use the square phyllo dough (cut small rectangles of dough with a scissor) or the one you can find in Turkish stores in triangle

8-Put 2 or 3 spoonfuls of filling

9-Fold like the bricks then put under a film paper so that the dough does not dry

10-Pour some oil (4 to 5 tablespoons) in a frying pan and brown the Comorian samoussas over low heat, turning them over halfway through cooking.

C'est prêt! To be served hot!
