Vegetable Samosa Mix Cooking Time: 2-3 Hours
Makes 30-40 Samosa
· 5oz Mixed Vegetables – Peas, Corn, Carrots, Beans
· 3oz Frozen Corn
· 8oz Frozen Peas
· 1 lb Boiled Potatoes (Red Skinned)
· 4 oz Small Onion Finely Chopped
· 5 Tbspn Finely Chopped Coriander
· 2 Tbspn Oil
· 2 Tbspn Lemon Juice
· ¼ tspn Whole Cumin Seeds
· 1 ½ tspn Salt
· ½ tspn Red Chili Powder
· 1 tspn Garam Masala
· ¼ tspn Turmeric
· 2 tspn Ginger-Garlic-Chili Paste
· ½ tspn Sugar (or to taste)
For the Paste:
· ¼ Cup Plain Flour
· 4 Tbspn Water
· 60 - 80 Samosa Pastry (as we will use double pastry)
Cut the potatoes into large chunks and pressure cook for about 10 minutes with salt. Then peel and cut into small pieces about 1cm in size.
Heat oil. Add cumin seeds and let them pop for a few seconds.
Then add the mixed vegetables. Stir-fry until the moisture evaporates.
Add the ginger-garlic-chili paste, all the other spices EXCEPT sugar, lemon juice, onions and coriander. Cook this mixture until it is dry. Let this cool for 5-10 minutes.
Then add the cut, boiled potatoes.
Finally, add lemon juice, sugar, raw onions and coriander. Mix the mixture. Taste and adjust as needed.
Make the paste to seal the samosa with the flour and water. Keep aside.
Separate the samosa pastry in double sheets being sure to keep the pastry covered in a damp tea towel. We use double pastry for crispy samosas. Depending on which pastry you are using, follow the instructions on the video as to whether you need to cut them or not.
Fold according to the video.
To fry the samosa, make sure the oil is hot enough as shown in the video. Fry 4 samosas at a time for 5-7 minutes.
If you want to freeze the samosa, partially fry then cool and freeze. To fry after freezing, microwave the samosas for 30 seconds on high to slightly defrost then follow frying instructions.
