Pizza samoosas…….I can hear that voice in your head going “what??! sounds too weird” but yes, it’s been flooding my newsfeed on facebook for the past couple of weeks.
I see recipes of pizza samoosa going around like wildfire, and then I speak to a friend of mine and she said she did them as pizza springrolls instead and quite enjoyed it! What a good idea.
So now that I reckon, if everyone is talking about it so much, then perhaps I should try it out. But as always, I had to make my own little twist.
Since I had already tried a delicious cheese springroll recipe shared with me on the “Spice of Life” foodie group, courtesy of Fatima Bulbulia, I
wanted needed to add some protein. Hehe
So I had some chicken leftover from my moon filling recipe and I added to it to develop these pizza springrolls.
I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they came out, even though my sister says:
If it tastes like pizza, it should BE a pizza!
so where’s the pics?…..uhmmm ya, before I could take a pic, the test ones were all eaten!
So take 2 cups of any chicken filling (preferably a plainer filling sans turmeric etc.) and then add the following:
- 1 cup of cubed (quite small) robot peppers
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp lemon pepper
- 2 tsp origanum
- 2 cups grated tussers cheese
- 1 tin crushed pineapple (well drained) – can also use canned pineapple chopped into cubes
- handful of chopped black olives
- optional : generous handful of grated parmesan
Fill into your springrolls, roll and seal.
You can freeze them now.
For an added cuteness factor, you can dip each end into egg and then breadcrumbs. I can just imagine how oulik it would look!
Fry in hot oil. Serve with lemon and chutney.
