  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 12 egg roll/spring roll wrappers
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 12 chocolate squares optional

If frying:

  • 50 ml vegetable oil


  1. These banana samosas can be fried or baked. If baking, preheat oven to 350 F and line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare egg roll wrappers by brushing both sides lightly with melted butter. Work 2 at a time, as they dry out quickly.
  3. Mash bananas and place a spoonful on each wrapper. Optionally, you can also add a chocolate square. Fold over wrapper to form a triangle. You can tuck in the last edge or seal it with a little water. This video shows a good technique for forming the triangle
  4. If baking, set samosas on lined baking sheet. Bake on middle rack 15 to 18 minutes, until golden. Turn over. Continue baking another 6 to 8 minutes, or until wrappers are golden and crispy.
  5. If frying, heat oil to medium heat in a deep pan. Deep fry samosas until golden and drain.
  6. Serve banana samosas warm with a dusting of icing sugar or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
