To wrap the samosas use a large tortilla and divide it into quarters.

Fold each quarter into a cone like pocket and fill the pockets with ground turkey.

The story of this recipe:

This recipe reminds me of my childhood growing up in Uganda. My grandmother made Samosas over the weekend and we always looked forward to enjoying them.

Samosas are made in different parts of the world in different ways but this is my grandma’s recipe.

FYI, my grandma used to make dough, roll it to make the pockets but since I live in the US I opt for tortilla wraps and they still get the job done.
