Samboosak
(meat pies)

These flaky meat pies are eaten to break the Muslim fast every evening during the month of Ramadan. To the traditional meat stuffing of the northern Arab states are added leeks, boiled eggs, and regional spices.
Ingredients
1 package spring roll skins (approximately 8 inches square), defrosted
1 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. water
Oil for frying
Filling
1 small onion, minced
1 leek, cleaned and chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 pound ground beef or lamb
Salt
Black pepper
1/2 tsp. cumin or kebsa spices
2 egg whites, hard-boiled and chopped
Oil for frying
Directions
1. Saute the onions and leek in the oil until transparent. Add the meat, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook until done, breaking up lumps.
2. Add the cumin and the chopped egg whites and mix well.

3. Cut each spring roll skin into 3 strips of equal width (If the dough is not precisely square, use the slightly larger dimension for the length of the strip.) Lay out 3 to 4 strips on your work surface.

4. Place a rounded tsp. of the meat mixture toward the bottom right hand corner of each strip. Fold that corner diagonally over to the top left-hand corner, forming a triangle. As you fold, be certain that the side of the strip lines up perfectly with the folded portion. Continue as if folding a flag, alternately folding the bottom corners in a diagonal pattern. Seal the final flap with a bit of the flour paste.

5. Deep-fry and drain on absorbent paper.
