How to Make Samosas

Samosas are very popular stuffed pastry snacks in the South Asian and Arabian region. They are shaped in triangles or tetrahedrons and are usually vegetarian. Usually samosas in India and Arabia can only contain mutton and cannot contain beef or pork due to religious restrictions. Here is a recipe for samosas:

  • 1 pound potatoes
  • 3 onions, chopped
  • 1 cup peas

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 4 green chilies, chopped
  • 4 tablespoon oil
  • Egg roll wrappers

Instructions:

  1. Peel potatoes and boil them until they are soft that you can poke a fork into the potato flesh.
  2. Mash the potatoes
    coarsely.
  3. Put the oil in a pan and heat it.
  4. Sauté onions until they become brown.

  7. Add the rest of the ingredients except the peas and cook for 3 minutes.
  8. Combine with peas and simmer for 5 minutes.
  9. Cut egg roll wrappers into halves and shape each half into a cone.
  10. Cool the cooked filling mixture and once cool, put it into the cones.
