    MamaJ's Note:

    I found this on all recipes. It is a Somali recipe that is a lovely appetizer. It is often served during Ramadan. Shredded beef may be substituted for ground beef. Posted for ZWT4.

      Got a backyard thing going on today and this is one of the few appetizers I put out for my hungry crowd. I prepared the filling last evening and brought it to room temperature before putting the sambusas together. The last-minute frying while everybody's out having a good time I didn't like but the recipe I like! Made for ZWT4.
