Saudi Style Kheema Sambosek

Saudi Style Kheema Sambosek

Ramadan Kareem to all!! Whatever the situation is Ramadan always brings a positivity along with it!  Let’s make use of it to the best in this Ramadan with our beloved ones! Turning to today’s post, Samosas are quite popular in every part of the world, right? May the name or shape differ from one country to another, but it’s a treat for all! Yes, Sambousek is the Middle Eastern name for Samosa!

Every country has it’s own way of making samosas and today I’m sharing the recipe of Saudi style Kheema Sambousek! Yes, I love their kheema samosa with bits of boiled eggs in it! My old Saudi Neighbour used to send it and we just love it! This year I’m gonna miss her sambousek as we have moved to a new home! So i tried to recreate it and it’s almost there!

I tried the recipe from Saudi Food By Eman and just loved it! They call it sambousek and mostly shape is like a half-moon! Here I’m showing both ways of folding.
