Strawberry Cheesecake Sambosas

Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with a sweet twist on a savory classic! We all know and love sambosas but what about the dessert version? With fresh strawberries and a touch of cinnamon sugar, these crispy Strawberry Cheesecake Samosas are a treat you won’t be able to resist!

The Filling

To make the creamy, dreamy filling for your Strawberry Cheesecake Samosas, gather your ingredients first! Here’s everything you need:

  • cream cheese, room temperature
  • vanilla extract
  • granulated sugar
  • heavy cream

If you have ever made a no-bake cheesecake, the process is very similar! In one bowl add the heavy cream only. Beat together until stiff peaks form and the consistency looks exactly like whipped cream.

In another mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese with vanilla extract and granulated sugar. With a hand or stand mixer, beat the mixture until it becomes smooth, fluffy, and well incorporated. Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and use a wooden spatula to fold it in together. The final consistency should be silky smooth.

Now there is a second and third component to the filling. The second step is the strawberries. All you have to do is finely dice strawberries, add them to a bowl, and mix with just a little bit of white sugar. The sugar helps the strawberries release a little bit of water so it almost creates a strawberry sauce glaze.

The third component is just taking graham crackers and crushing them until they resemble fine sand and now you have the 3 components of a classic New York Strawberry Cheesecake prepped. Let’s move on to assembling the sambosas now!

Assembling and Frying

Begin by heating vegetable oil in a frying pan until it reaches 350°F over medium heat, ensuring it’s hot enough for frying. While the oil heats, lay out a few wonton wrappers at a time. Spoon a small dollop of the cheesecake filling onto the center of each wrapper, making sure not to overfill. Then add a few pieces of the strawberries and a sprinkle of graham crackers. Use a brush to run water along the edges of each wrapper. Then fold the wrapper over the filling to create a triangle shape, pressing down firmly to seal it tightly. Make sure there are no cracks or it will leak while frying. Repeat this process with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Carefully place the filled samosas into the hot oil, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Fry them until they turn golden brown and crispy on all sides, which should take about 2 minutes per side. Once they’re beautifully golden, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. You can also place them on a wire rack for this step!

At this point, you can stop and enjoy deliciously as is or take it a step further! Coat the fried dessert sambosas in cinnamon sugar. It takes less than a minute to make, it’s literally just cinnamon and white sugar combined together. Toss the sambosas in the cinnamon sugar, shaking them around so they’re fully coated and that’s it.

For the best experience, enjoy these warm but not straight from the fryer or they might burn your mouth. Let them cool for about 10 minutes and then dig in. They turn out so crispy on the outside but creamy and delicious on the inside. Stay tuned for the next version we make of this with chocolate!
