Here is what you need to prepare about ten samosas :
Ingredients for the caramelised banana
500 g bananas
100 g sugar
1 teaspoon cardamon
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon rum
Ingredients for the pineapple and tamarind chutney
100 g tamarind pulp
100 g pineapple chunks
100 g water
40 g sugar
100 g butter
25 g icing sugar
For the caramelised banana, skin the bananas, and mix them with the sugar, cardamom, cinnamon and rum over a low heat until everything caramelises.
Then butter each layer of filou pastry and add the sugar. Cut each one into 3 cm-wide strips, stuff with the caramelised banana and fold to the shape of a samosa (from the Hindi ‘samosa’ which means fritter).
Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC and leave to cook until the small samosas are golden.
Then just taste this delicious dessert, which will remind you of the unforgettable moments of your stay at the 4-star Hôtel Ambre in Mauritius ! Bon appétit !
