Normally savoury Samosas are made during  Diwali but today I have chosen to make sweet Samosas . The Sindhi’s are very fond of sweet samosas and generally the filling is either halwa or khoya , but these are served on Holi . I have given these samosas a twist , made a mini version and stuffed them with gulab jamun .

 

Gulab jamun is a Indian Sweet and I love using it in sweets . I have made a Carrot Gulabjamun Terrine, Gulab Jamun Kulfi , Gulab Jamun ki Kheer , Custard with gulab Jamun and all these sweets are a hit and can be served at parties .

 

Coming to Gulab Jamun Samosa , we need a similar dough as we use for the savoury Samosas , minus the salt and carom seeds . For stuffing we must try to use the black jamuns which are dry but you can use the regular ones too . Make sure you squeeze out the syrup. Crumble the jamuns lightly and add some coarsely ground nuts to them. This way the nuts absorb the moisture from any excess syrup that is left . After the samosas are stuffed and fried you can dip and remove them from the sugar syrup immediately . A very thin coat is required . The inside is sweet enough , it is the crust which is sweetened by the syrup . The samosas can be made and kept for 2-3 days, definitely longer if refrigerated .

 

These samosas are my Day 2  post for the third week of BM 81 under the theme Diwali Sweets.
