Saudi Samosas with Mung beans filling
A new month and as usual it's time for the monthly challenge in Arabic flavor .
This time the recipe was introduced by the beautiful Amaal Shoomi "host of the month" from Saudi Arabia,she chose to share a Saudi authentic Samosas that are very famous in the gulf region.
The special thing about this samosas is the filling! a mixture of meat beef and Mung beans also known as (moong bean),and it was the first time for me to try such a filling for samosa... actually first time to know about this delicious green whole moong beans! which turns out to have some huge health benefits :)
The photos above were my entry for Saudi samosa, I want to thank Amal for her recipe choice as I found it easy to make and my family loved it :) it's going to be a stable dish on our Iftar table during Ramadan Inshallah.
Now, let's jump in for the full recipe from Arabic Flavor :) Enjoy!
