  • 3 cups or 420 g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup or 110 g unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup or 185 ml water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 medium or 250 g onion, chopped
  • 500 g minced lamb
  • 2 cubes MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons pine seeds, toasted
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground Arabic seven spices
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint
  • 2 cups oil for deep frying

How to Prepare

  1. Place flour in a deep bowl, add sugar, salt, butter and mix well with your fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Gradually add little quantities of water and mix thoroughly until a dough forms. Cover with kitchen cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan and saute onion for 2 minutes then add the minced lamb and fry for 5 minutes or until brown in colour. Add the crumbled MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon cubes, toasted pine seeds, spices and dried mint. Stir for few seconds or until all are well combined then set aside to cool.
  4. Roll the dough into around 3 millimeters thin pastry. Using a medium size cup or dough cutter, cut round pieces of the dough. Place 1 tablespoon of the stuffing in the center of each piece and seal the edges by twisting them or pressing with fork.
  5. Deep-fry the sambousek in 190°C preheated oil for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown in color. Remove from oil and place on kitchen paper towels to absorb excess oil then serve.
