I couldnt find a recipe that matched a restaurant samosa close enough so i decided to come up with my own, im my opinion they taste exactly the same as the frozen boxed DARSHAN meat samosas that are available at woolies and taste the same as my fave indian restaurant samosas.
also when looking for an authentic recipe it was hard to find any that didnt cheat and use puff or filo pastry which is cheating and comes no where near the taste of a proper samosa.... Read more.
Pre heat oven at 170 C
In a lge bowl add the flour, oil, water and salt and quickly mix in to a dough, knead for 5 mins then flour the ball of dough, place in a zip lock bag and set aside for at least 30 mins.
-make the raita
-heat the oil and add the onions, cook on medium heat till light brown and translucent
-add some salt, turmeric, ginger, garlic, cumin seeds, corriander, ground cumin seeds and fry for around 5-10 minutes on a medium heat to release all the aroma from the spices
-add the tomato and mint and fry for a further 5 mins
- add the mince and a little more lemon juice and cook low for 10 mins till the meat is cooked through. (here i like to add some extra ground corriander)
-add cooked peas and break up steamed potatoes into the mix, stir and cook into a paste.
-spread out on a tray to cool
Raita (kermit sauce)
- Process your mint finely if not using a pre minced mint (i find it quicker and easier) and it lasts for ages in the fridge.
-Mix yoghurt, corriander, food colouring, lemon or lime juice, and minced mint in a bowl and chill for an hour.
WHEN THE FILLING IS COOL ITS TIME TO ASSEMBLE THE SAMOSAS
This amount of mix and dough makes 16 samosas so divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll the portions into circles.
Cut the circles in half to make 16 pieces.
- to fill, take one half circle piece and about a tablespoon of the cooled mix and place it at one end.
- fold the other end over the top and pinch the 2 open ends.
- place samosa back onto floured surface and shape into a triangle.
Place onto a greased tray and spray with cooking oil
Then into the oven for about 15 - 25 mins at 170 C
Samosas can also be deep fried but i like to think its healthier to bake them for a fairly similar result.
they look and taste great with sesame or poppy seeds sprinkled on before baking also.
