Sambousek Mwarraq is the second dish prepared from the dough “‘Ajineh Mwarraqah”, the word Mwarraq is derived from Mwarraqa, and Sambousek is the Arabic word for Samosa.

In Syria, we have different Sambousek recipes, the dough differs in each recipe, but the filling is the same of this one (Sambousek Mwaraq), and some of them fried and the others baked.

Let’s make Sambousk Mwarraq:

Notes and Tips

You can make the dough (‘Ajineh Mwarraqah) in the same day of making this dish, and use the dough fresh and make this dish (a fresh dough is always better) , if you made the dough before and stored it in the freezer so the first thing is to remove the dough from the freezer early in the morning and let it defrost, then use it (please don’t defrost using microwave because the dough will not be good to work with it).

For this quantity of meat we got about 16 Sambousek, so dough needed for this is 16 pieces.

For baking, I used aluminum baking sheet.
