Sardine Samosa Recipe



By Justina Lee

If your favorite snack is beef samosas, wait till you take a bite of these delectable sardines samosas – crispy fried triangular-shaped savory snacks that are worth every calorie you ingest!

Subtly spiced and brimming with rich flavors from tamarind juice, nutmeg, sweet basil, and cumin, these bite-sized nibbles are the best party appetizers ever! They also make delicious indulgences served with your afternoon tea, or a variety of dips.

Be sure to make huge batches of these easy snacks as they appeal to every palate, and will disappear very fast! This sardine samosa recipe is also good to make ahead and freeze. You can choose to bake them instead of deep-frying, if you want a healthy treat.


Easy Spicy Sardine Samosa Recipe

(makes about 20)


½ packet large spring roll skins

1 can spicy tomato sardines, finely flaked (I use a Thai brand, Masam curry. Don't worry if you can't find one. You can improvise using this recipe – see step 3*)

1 large potato, peeled and diced

3-4 tablespoons cooking oil

a little cornflour, mixed with water to form a paste

oil for deep-frying



How to make spicy sardine samosas

1. Heat cooking oil in a pan until hot. Stir-fry diced potatoes until they are tender, about 15 minutes. You may want to sprinkle a little salt.


2. Remove potato  from pan. Wipe the pan surface with a paper towel to remove excess oil.


3. Return the potatoes to pan, and pour in flaked sardine.


*If you can't get hold of spicy sardines, here's what you can do – blend together 1 clove garlic, 1 stalk lemongrass, 1 red chili, 2 shallots, ½ teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon lime juice and a small piece of belacan. Fry them until fragrant and add to canned sardines.


4. Cook for 5 minutes, until the mixture is slightly dry. Remove everything from pan, and let cool.


5. Take one spring roll skin, and cut into 3 strips lengthwise.


6. Place about 1 heaped tablespoon of the sardine mixture at the end of the spring roll strip Fold one corner over diagonally to align with the opposite side of the strip. You should get a triangle at the base of the spring roll skin.


7. Continue to fold the rest of the strip around the triangle.


8. Seal the edge with flour paste.


9. Repeat until the sardine mixture is used up.


10. Deep fry sardine samosas in very hot oil (in batches), until crisp and golden. Enjoy!
