Recipe by Nif_H
READY IN: 50mins




  • Combine all filling ingredients in heavy sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil and stir to keep smooth.
  • Reduce heat to medium and let mixture simmer uncovered.
  • Correct flavor for spices and salt balance.
  • As water simmers away, stir often to prevent mixture from sticking, especially during final stages.
  • Cook until all liquid evaporates.
  • If ground meat has a lot of fat, drain off at this point.
  • Let mixture cool slightly before stuffing.
  • Fill won ton wrappers with 1 to 2 tsp of filling. Moisten and press the edges together in a triangle shape.
  • Fry the Sanbossas, several at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Place the golden brown Sambossas on paper towel to rid of excess oil. Serve hot or cold with or without chutney.
