These were very easy to make and had an excellent flavor in the spicing! The dipping sauce was delicious and was as popular as the traditional tamarind and cilantro chutneys. Definitely a keeper. Thanks, Sarafish!

Really tasty and very easy for this novice. Only thing - the dough was somewhat hard to work with and my crescents were more like blobs! But they tasted great!

My mom made these last night per my suggestion and they turned out pretty good. I think a homemade fried shell would have tasted better, and we ended up dumping the honey sauce because it was too sweet. We may make this again, but would need to find a better dipping sauce (indian restaurants typically have chutney accompanying it so may give that a try).

These were simple, but the flavor of the filling was rather bland, and the crescent rolls were an odd texture for samosas.

These were incredible, tasted exactly like a samosa I had before at a cafe. This is my first samosa recipe I have tried and I'm sticking with this one! I omitted the dried cilantro and used a handful of fresh instead and used canned sweet peas..outstanding!! This will be a favorite in my house. Thanks so much for posting this Sarafish!!

Samosas are fanatastic! The crescent roll shell is more akin to an English meat pie than a traditional samosa, but nevertheless is very good. The only thing my family didn't like was the honey dipping sauce. You'd be better off finding some tamarind paste and making a proper tamarind sauce, or even steak sauce if all else fails.

These were very messy, difficult to form and left us with a lot of leftover filling. We liked the sauce but I don't forsee we'll make these again.

Because my family tends to be skeptical of new foods, I offered these up alongside more traditional Indian dishes - and they, at least, were a hit! I cut the honey in the sauce to 1/4 cup and thought it was just about right, not too sweet like some have complained of the 1/3 cup. You do have to make these up quickly - while the dough is still stiff, or they tend to get sort of melty and difficult to handle.

My husband and I liked these a lot. My husband ate 12 in one sitting! Thanks for the recipe. We had filling left over that I ate with rice and it was good that way too.

This was very quick, very simple and just a travesty. I got through one bite because it was mostly just crescent with a bit of flavor from the spicing, Only reason I was able to down a second bite was because of the dipping sauce which was quite excellent.I went over the recipe 3 times to make sure I did it right. I recommend finding a recipe without shortcuts, take the time and make some delicious.
