  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaf
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt or salt as per your Taste

To seal the edges of spring roll Wrappers make a paste with 1/2 tsp cornstarch or potato starch with 1 tsp water.

2 Cups of Extra lite olive oil or any vegetable oil you like.


Take a frying pan.Heat the pan and put just 1 Tsp oil into it and fry the chopped onion until the onion becomes soft and translucent.After onion sauteed complete to keep the sauteed onion aside in a bowl.

  1. Take a big bowl.

  2. Put all the canned Tuna meat with oil or with bine, fried chopped onion, Black pepper powder, Garlic chopped or grated, chopped fresh parsley leaf, Salt or salt as per your Taste.

  3. Mix all the ingredients very well.

Take a pan put all the ingredients into the pan and fry for 2- 3 mins or until all the moisture gone from the mixture.But do the frying process in very low gas flame and stair frequently the mixture to avoid the fish stick into the bottom.


  2. Once you feel all the moisture is gone from the mixture then you can be sure the fill or stuff for our samosa is ready to use.

  3. Now cut the Spring roll sheets or wrappers in half from the middle and put the filling in a corner of the wrapper.

  4. Now roll the wrapper on the filling to make a triangular or samosa-like shape.once It's done close the open edge with cornstarch paste to seal the filling.

  5. After all the samosa is done put all of them in the refrigerator for 7 mins

  6. In between 7 mints take a big deep frying pan put 2 cups of oil into it and make it hot in a medium gas flame.

  7. Once the oil is hot enough Remove all the samosa from the fridge and deep Fry them in hot oil for 5 mins or You can Air fry this in 160 degrees preheated oven for 10 mins as I did. It's a very healthy option than deep frying.

  8. After 5 mints remove all the samosas from the hot oil.

And serve this snack dish with tomato ketchup or with any sauce chatny you like.

In Arab, they usually serve this savoury snack with Tomato ketchup only.


Always deep fry samosa kind of snack dish in medium to low heat to make the dish crispier from outside and softer from the inside and to avoid burning the snack.
