Transcript:Vegetarian SamosasHi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make vegetarian samosas.
Vegetarian Samosas IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 1 packet of spring roll pastry
- 3 large potatoes
- 3/4 cup peas
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoons red chili flakes
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon water
Make the Vegetarian Samosas FillingPour in your water into a small bowl with flour, and mix with a brush until it has a thin, glue-like consistency.
Chop the potatoes into small bite-sized pieces. Put them in a medium bowl, then add peas, chopped onions, spices, coriander, and lemon juice. Mix everything together.
Stuff the Vegetarian SamosasPlace your pastry sheet on the cutting board. Lift one corner of half of the pastry sheet towards the center. Brush it with our flour glue.
Lift the other edge of half cookie and lay over the previous. Press to seal. Now, you have formed a dough cone.
Hold the cone in your hand, and take about a tablespoon of filling and stuff the samosa. Seal the open lip with sealer. Fold the edge over. Press and seal.
Fry the Vegetarian SamosasHeat the oil in a deep pan on medium heat. Put in three samosas, and fry them on one side until they brown. Then turn them over and fry on the other side.
Lift them out of the pan on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. You can serve them as an appetizer or as part of the main meal.
