DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, leek and garlic, and cook, until the onions are tender.
  • Add ground beef, and cook until about halfway done. Season with cumin, cardamom, salt and pepper.
  • Mix well, and continue cooking until beef has browned.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and water to make a thin paste.
  • Using one wrapper at a time, fold into the shape of a cone.
  • Fill the cone with the meat mixture, close the top, and seal with the paste. Repeat until wraps or filling are used up.
  • Pour oil into a deep heavy pot to a depth of two to three inches.
  • Heat to 365-375 degrees.
  • There should be enough oil to submerge the wraps.
  • Fry the sambusas a few at a time until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve while hot.
