Vegetable Samosas Recipe    Veg  HT  Indian  HD  30mins



Makes approx. 12     Hot   Vegetarian  Vegetables  Curry    Ind   Hors d'oeuvre    Starter     Appetizer    Buffet    Party  India  Asia  Asian




    1 large Potato, peeled, diced and cooked

   25g/1oz Frozen Peas, defrosted

   25g/1oz Frozen Sweetcorn Kernels, defrosted

   1/2 Carrot, grated

   1/2 teasp Ground Coriander

   1/2 teasp Ground Cumin

   1/2 teasp Garam Masala

   6 sheets Frozen Filo Pastry, defrosted

   Oil for deep frying





1. Place the potato, peas, sweetcorn, carrot, coriander, cumin and  garam masala in a bowl and mix until well blended.


2. Cut each filo sheet into half lengthways. Take one strip of pastry and place on the work surface in front of you lengthways. Fold over the bottom right hand corner diagonally so the bottom short edge is parallel to the left hand long edge. Do not press too firmly as the crease is only to give you a guide as to where to place the filling. Pull the folded "triangle" part of the pastry back flat.


3. Place 2-3 teaspoonfuls of the filling to the left (top) of the crease guide, but not too near to the edges, then fold the triangle part over the filling.


4. Now fold the triangle with the filling away from you, thus enclosing the top part of the triangle, then fold again towards the right, keeping the triangle shape. Continue folding the triangle in this way until you come to the end of the strip of pastry. You should end up with a perfect triangle which totally encloses the filling.


5.  Repeat the above process with the remaining pastry sheets. This sounds very fiddly, but by the time you've done 2, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about!


6. Preheat the deep fat fryer to 180C, 350F.


 7. Fry the Samosas a few at a time, until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm whilst you fry the remaining samosas. Serve hot.
