Ingredients

Dough

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 4 to 8 tbsp cold water 
  • 1 tsp salt

Filling

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp Patak’s® Mild Curry Spice Paste
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • Patak’s® Sweet Mango Chutney (dipping, optional)
  • Oil (deep fryiing)

Instructions

Dough

  1. Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. 
  2. Add the oil and combine into a crumbly mixture. 
  3. Add the cold water and mix thoroughly, start with 4 tbsp and continue to add 1 tbsp at a time until the mixture starts to become sticky. Do not add too much water at once and stop when you reach a crumbly mixture. 
  4. Knead the mixture until it becomes firm dough. 
  5. Cover the dough with a moistened towel and set it aside.

Filling

  1. Cook potatoes in a pot of boiling water until tender. Strain water and set aside. 
  2. Sauté onion, garlic and ginger until onions are translucent. 
  3. Add the Patak’s® Mild Curry Spice Paste to pan and cook for 2 min. 
  4. Add the cooked potatoes and cook for 2 to 3 more min. Add the peas and carrots, cover the mixture and cook for 5 to 10 min until the peas and carrots are hot. 
  5. Remove from heat and let cool.

Assembly

  1. Divide dough into 1.5” diameter balls (8 to 10 balls). 
  2. Use a rolling pin, roll balls into flat circles. You want it just thick enough to hold the filling. 
  3. Cut the circle in half with a knife or pizza cutter. 
  4. Rub cold water with a brush (or finger) around the edge of the semi-circle. 
  5. Roll dough into a cone. 
  6. Stuff the mixture into the cone and pinch closed. 
  7. Repeat until complete.

Cooking:

  1. Heat oil in a pan. Check that oil is hot by adding a small piece of pastry. Cook samosas until golden brown.
  2. Once cooked, place samosas onto a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
  3. Serve warm with Patak’s® Sweet Mango Chutney.
