Samosa Preparation

Directions

Pastry

1. In large bowl, stir together flour and salt. Add oil and stir until well blended. Gradually add enough of the water, stirring with fork, to make a firm dough. Turn out onto floured surface. Knead 5 minutes until smooth; cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

Filling

1. Peel and cut potatoes into 1/4 inch (5 mm) cubes; set aside.

2. Heat large skillet over medium heat. Add mustard seeds to pan and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until seeds turn gray and start to pop. Remove and set aside.

3. Heat oil in pan and add onions, ginger and curry paste; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add potatoes and cook for 2 minutes.

4. Pour in stock, salt and lemon juice; bring to boil reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender and liquid is almost absorbed.

5. Stir in peas and chopped coriander; remove from heat; set aside.

Samosa Preparation

1. Divide pastry into 10 balls. Working with one at a time and keeping the remaining covered, roll each into a 7-inch circle. Cut the circle in half and brush edge with water. Add a rounded tablespoonful (15 mL) filling and fold the pastry to form a cone. Press the straight edges to seal. Fold the rounded edges together and crimp to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

2. In large shallow saucepan, heat oil to 350°F or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds. Cook 2 to 3 samosas at a time for 4 to 5 minutes, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels.
