Recipe: My First Samosas

I’m going to be up front here right away by pointing out that these are NOT traditional samosas. It’s not a family recipe or anything, it’s just something I whipped up when I had a craving and wanted to see what I could manage. Even so, they were a big hit at a recent pot luck, so I thought I’d share.

What you need:

  • Baking dish
  • Big saucepan
  • Big pot
  • Big bowl
  • 10 Egg roll wrappers
  • 1 lb potatoes (Cauliflower would be a great low carb substitute!)
  • 4 carrots
  • 1 cup of peas (I used frozen)
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbs masala seasoning
  • 2 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper or cayenne to taste
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • Olive oil (spray can)

What to do:

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a big pot, boil potatoes, carrots and peas
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat coconut oil and saute onion and garlic
  4. Once fragrant, add to pan: masala, coriander, curry, garlic powder, salt and pepper/cayenne
  5. Transfer onion mix to big bowl
  6. When potatoes are soft enough, drain and mash pot contents to a chunky consistency
  7. Transfer potato mix to bowl and mix to blend with onion mix (this is the filling)
  8. At this point, you can taste the filling and add seasoning as you see fit
  9. Spoon a tbs of filling onto each egg roll wrapper and fold closed
  10. Arrange on baking dish and spray with olive oil
  11. Bake for 10 mins or until tops begin to brown

   *Tip: The longer you bake, the crispier they will get
