Have you ever heard Samosa? I bet you did, but not dessert samosa. Savory spicy Samosa is very popular these days and known almost all around the world. But when you try this dessert version of Samosa, you will be amazed why nobody tried to make dessert Samosa for the centuries...well, never too late. Samosa is very popular in my family. My total American Desi Son even admire Samosa and Paneer curry a lot. So I thought why not make Samosa for dessert!! And to my surprise, I actually fell in love with Chocolate Samosa even though I am not a fan of Savory Samosa. This recipe was actually born with Cannoli. I made Cannoli Shells dough for about 20 Cannolis but I did not want to prepare all Cannolis and thought of making fried Pie but then all of a sudden, the idea clicked why not Samosa. Pie thing has got kind of too old...Chocolate Samosa%MINIFYHTML8cb62bd7cdb326a4dda067ca95c27c8c17%
