It’s the new gadget that Aussie mums are going nuts for - but now it seems one clever home chef has found a very different use for the Aldi Samosa Maker.
The $29 appliance was on sale last week as part of Aldi’s Special Buys, and shoppers were quick to snap up the machine - with one saying it was the best new gadget of 2019.
Well now one savvy home chef has come up with a new way of using the Aldi gadget and we couldn’t love it more. While many have already whipped up batches of samosas, clever cook Holly used the Samosa Maker to make mini cakes using an Aldi packet cake mix - in just six minutes.
Sharing her creation on the Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia Facebook group, Holly writes: ‘Makes 24 triangular vanilla cakes in 6 minutes. Make mix as per box recipe. Pour batter over evenly and 24 perfect triangle delights. Yummy by themselves (especially straight out of Maker). I bling them up by dipping in melted margarine and then sugar/Cinnamon mix.’
Don’t they look yum?! Not surprisingly, they got the big tick of approval from the Facebook group’s other followers.
Said one: ‘Gggrrrr, So jealous!! been to soooo many Aldi stires! could not get one of these Mothers anywhere!!!!!’ Added another: ‘Brilliant ! I have a samosa maker still in its box with the receipt ! You’ve convinced me it’s a cool machine 👍’
Said a third: ‘Oh wow. That's one to try!’
We totally agree. Now, we’re off to try and find a Samosa maker ...
