Simple Samosa





I had a few friends coming over tonight for wine, cheese an appetizers so I took the opportunity to experiment with a recipe.  I had some puff pastry in the fridge waiting to be used so I decided to make a mini-Samosa .

While the dough was thawing, I made the filling:


Ingredients
 3 Russet Potatoes
1/2 large onion
1 cup crimini mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped carrot
1/2 cup peas
Salt
Pepper
1 tsp Cumin
3/4 tsp Turmeric
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic salt
2 tbsp sour cream

Microwave the potatoes. At the same time, caramelize the onion and mushroom together on the stop.When the potatoes are done, peel and dice them and place them in as mixing bowl. Now add the spices ( salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric and garlic salt) to the onion/mushrooms and stir.  Add this mixture to the potatoes along with the carrots, peas and sour cream. Mix well and set aside

Now that the puff pastry has thawed, use a rolling pin to thin it out and allow you to get multiple servings.  Cut the dough into desired sizes ( I used a cup to cut them into circles which i used to create small half circle samosas) .  Place the filling in the middle of each piece, fold over the dough and pinch the sides to seal them.

Bake in the oven at 360F for about 30 minutes. Make sure to spray the cooking pan with Pam ( or like product). Also, spray the top of the pastries. ( You may use an egg wash instead)


This is a great alternative to the traditionally fried samosa.
