NUTS & NUTELLA FILLED BAKED SAMOSA

Grab this Samosa for a snack or serve it as an elegant end to a meal.

Ingredients:

For pastry:
1 cup flour
1½ tsp semolina
1½ tbsp ghee or oil
¼ cup scant water for making dough
Oil for brushing the samosa
Confectioners sugar for dusting

For Filling:
1 jar Nutella
4 tbsp desiccated Coconut
4 tbsp Hazelnuts (roughly chopped)
4 tsp Almonds (roughly chopped)
4 tsp Pistachio (roughly chopped)

Method:

Mix the flours and add ghee. Mix together the flour with ghee till it becomes somewhat crumbly. Add water and make a stiff dough. Cover the dough with a cloth and keep aside for 20-30 minutes.

Heat the oven at 220 degrees C. Divide the dough in 12 equal parts and make balls. Roll out each ball to four inches diameter and scoop a generous teaspoon of nutella in the center, sprinkle over some nuts & desiccated coconut. Bring the edges together and seal them in what ever shape you fancy. You can bring together the edges and pinch them to make a triangular shape or a squarish shape (like I did) or shape them into a d-shape like gujiya.

Brush the samosas with a little oil and arrange them on a baking tray. Bake till the pastry turns golden brown. Remove from oven and cool them on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners sugar and drizzle with some more nutella. Enjoy!!

Note: Serve them hot or at room temperature.
Note: The samosa can be served with some whipped cream or ice cream.

Yield: a dozen
