Samosas make a great flavorful and also filling appetizer or can even be a meal. This is a simple recipe, I used egg roll wrappers which are just as delicious as making your own dough but much easier! Serve them with the Cilantro Mint Chutney. Yummmm!!!
Dice and cook potatoes in water till soft but not mushy
Dice carrots into small pieces and steam till soft
Measure coriander seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric and garam masala
Add 4 Tablespoons olive oil and spices to a sauté pan and cook on med heat for about 5 minutes or untill seeds begin to crackle and spices release their fragrances
While spices are cooking (keep an eye on them) chop onions then add to pan and add salt
While onions are cooking, finely grate ginger, mince serroenos and garlic
Make sure and stir onions
When onions are soft add ginger, serranos and garlic.
Sauté for a couple of minutes
Add carrots, peas and potatoes
Cook for 5 more minutes to incorporate all the flavors
Place a sheet of an egg roll wrapper on a plate and add some filling
With your finger spread some water on the bottom edge of the wrapper, flip bottom over about 1 inch over the filling and press the corners together.
Spread water on 3 remaining edges using the water as a glue to stick together.
Then fold right corner over and sealing the edge
Then fold left corner over and seal. Press down edges softly but making sure it is sticking good
Continue with the rest
Add about 3/4 inch of grapeseed oil to a pan and place as many samosas that will fit. Fry till bottom is golden
Flip them over and fry other sides
Remove when evenly golden
Place onto a few sheets of paper towels to remove excess oil. They are ready to eat!!!
The cilantro mint chutney is the perfect dipping sauce
