  • Author: Samara

Crispy, golden fried cheese samosas that are so easy to make and oh so delicious. Freezer friendly and only 3 ingredients. These easy cheese samosas are a crowd favorite.


Units Scale
  • 1 packet samosa pastry (around 30 sheets)
  • 1 lb (500g) shelal cheese OR 1 lb (500g) mix of shredded mozzarella and feta cheese (see notes for other options of cheese)
  • Oil for frying


  1. Lay a samosa wrapper flat on your working station, vertically. Add around a teaspoon and a half of your choice of cheese and start folding upwards into a triangle over and over until the wrapper is fully wrapped onto itself. Dip your finger into warm water and seal the samosa well. 
  2. Repeat until you're out of samosa wrappers.
  3. Heat the frying oil in a deep frying pan on the stove. Check if it's ready by placing the back of a wooden spoon in the oil. If it bubbles, then it's hot enough. If not, wait for a bit. 
  4. Place the samosas in without overcrowding the pan and fry while stirring frequently until golden all over. 
  5. Place the cooked ones on a paper towel and serve immediately. 


  • Make sure your samosas are sealed well so the cheese doesn't leak out when you fry them. 
  • Don't overcrowd your pan. 
  • Other cheese variations: mozzarella, cheddar, akkawi, kashkaval, feta, or white cheese. 
  • Good cheese combinations are 50/50: mozzarella & akkawi, mozzarella & feta, cheddar & kashkaval.
