Description

Samosas are a traditionally Middle Eastern and Asian savory stuffed pastry. These samosas are simple and vegetarian friendly. Squares of puff pastry are filled with a savory filling featuring potatoes, peas, currants, a medley of spices including cumin, cinnamon, and chilli powder. You can make your own puff pastry or buy it premade before being baked a golden crisp. This recipe includes instructions for an accompanying yogurt-based raita sauce for dipping.

Ingredients

  • 3 potatoes (medium, peeled and cubed)
  • 80 grams frozen peas
  • 35 grams dried currants (you can substitute raisins or prunes)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili peppers (diced, optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 sheets puff pastry (thawed and carefully extended)
  • 1 eggs (beaten)
  • 250 grams plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint (diced)
  • 1 pinch ground cumin

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a pot, add the potatoes and peas. Cover with lightly salted water and bring the the boil. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Drain.

  5. Cut the puff pastry into 12 centimeter diameter circles. Wet the edges of the circle with water and fill with a tablespoon of the potato mixture.
  6. Fold the circles into half moons and seal the edges by pressing them with the tines of a fork. Baste the tops with beaten egg and place the samosas on the baking sheet.
  7. Bake 15 minutes until golden and crunchy.
  8. While baking, stir together the yogurt, mint, and cumin powder to make the raita sauce.
  9. Serve the samosas with the raita sauce on the side.
