Vegetarian Samosas 2

Ingredients


For the pastry
280g wheat flour
1 egg yolk
Olive oil
225ml warm water
Handful sunflower and black sesame seeds (optional)

For the filling
2 large potatoes
80g green peas
1 carrot
2 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp garlic and ginger paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of salt

Method


  1. For the pastry: in a bowl, mix the flour, salt, oil and egg yolk until the mixture has a breadcrumb texture. Gradually stir in the warm water until you have a smooth dough
  2. Wrap the dough in some cling film and chill in the fridge for at least half an hour
  3. For the filling: boil or steam potatoes for around 15 minutes; drain water and mash the potatoes
  4. Dice the carrot into very small squares
  5. Boil or steam the peas and carrots for 2 – 3 minutes
  6. Transfer mashed potatoes, peas and carrots to a large bowl. Add the garam masala powder, garlic and ginger paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt. Mix thoroughly
  7. Over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a frying pan. Add cumin seeds and heat until the seeds start to pop
  8. Add the mashed potato mix to the frying pan and fry for 1-2 minutes, set aside for later
  9. Take the dough out of the fridge and cut into small chunks; roll out each piece into squares
  10. Using a spoon dole out the filling and place at the centre of each dough square
  11. Fold over one side of the dough to form a triangular samosa ‘pocket’; seal the sides gently with water and brush a little oil over each samosa. Top with sunflower and black sesame seeds if desired
  12. Set your air fryer to 180°C and preheat for a few minutes
  13. Place the samosas on the air fryer baking tray
  14. Cook for 20 minutes then dig in!
