What you'll need:
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 150g potato, finely diced
- 2 crushed garlic cloves
- 100g frozen peas
- 100g carrot, finely chopped
- 2 tsp curry powder (or your own preferred spice mix)
- 100ml vegetable stock
For the Pastry
2 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
225g plain flour
About 2 litres of oil for frying
Time: 1 hour
Serves: 24 Samosas
Kick things off by making your filling. In a large frying pan, heat the oil and gently fry the onion and garlic for 10 minutes. Add the vegetables, season well, and fry for a further 3 minutes. Add the stock, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
Next, make the pastry. Mix together the flour and the salt in a bowl, make a well in the centre, then add 100ml cold water and your oil, and mix to make a firm dough. Knead for 7-8 minutes on a floured surface, roll into a ball, and cover with film. Set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Divide your pastry into 12 pieces of approximately equal size. Roll each piece into a ball, then roll out to create a circle of about 15cm diameter. Cut the circle into two equal pieces with a sharp knife.
Now to form the samosas! Brush the edges with a little water, then form a cone shape with the pastry around your fingers. Fill the cone with about 1 tbsp of the veg mix, then press the dampened edges together to seal. Once all completed, heat up the oil in your pan, and deep fry your samosas for about 8 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Drain on kitchen paper, then serve hot or cold.
