Samosas

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!!!

Samosas-1

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

S5

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

Stir thoroughly

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

S13

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

S15

Then fold left corner over and seal.  Press down edges softly but making sure it is sticking good

Continue with the rest

S11

Add about 3/4 inch of grapeseed oil to a pan and place as many samosas that will fit.  Fry till bottom is golden

S16

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
