|1 hour 1 min.||20 min.||1 hour 21 min.|
|1||Peel 4 Pears, cut into 4 and discard the core of each quarter.||15 min.|
|2||Cut each quarter into small pieces and sprinkle with juice of ½ lemon.||5 min.|
|3||In a frying pan on high heat fire, melt 30 g Clarified butter, then add pears.
Cook until they are browned, then add 2 tablespoons caster sugar.
Cook a few more minutes, stirring from time to time, until they caramelise. Set aside.
|4||Finely chop 100 g walnut kernels.||3 min.|
|5||In a frying pan on high heat, put walnuts and 2 tablespoons caster sugar.||1 min.|
|6||Start to stir as soon as the sugar begins to melt, and continue until it caramelises. Set aside.||5 min.|
Take a half a brik (or filo)sheet and fold in half to make a long strip.
|8||Place a tablespoon of pears + walnuts at one end of the strip.||1 min.|
|9||Fold the pastry over the mixture at an angle.||1 min.|
|10||Then fold over again to form a small triangle.||2 min.|
|11||You should be left with a "flap" at the end.|
|12||Wet this end with a brush dipped in a little water or egg-white.||1 min.|
|13||And stick onto the triangle to seal it and finish the samosa.
Do the same with all the 6 sheets of brik pastry.
|14||The whole of this operation is a bit difficult to show, but you can also see how it's done in this short video.|
|15||Just before serving heat some oil in a frying pan, and fry the samosas until golden brown...||1 min.|

Note: you can also cook samosas in a deep-fat fryer.
