From container to samosas


I had my first "production" of potatoes in container. I'm doing some experiments with veggies in container.....let's see how is the production by the end of the summer.

I didn't know what to do, but my daughter told me....I want Samosas and very spicy!!


2 1/4 cups   flour  
1 tsp Salt                          
1 tsp Carom seeds        
5 tsp oil         
140 ml water (more if needed)                      

Mix all the ingredients and knead for 6 minutes or until you have a soft dough. Adjust for water. Let it rest covered for at least 30 minutes but not more than 1 hour.

700 grams boiled potatoes   in pieces
tbsp.  of ghee            
4 Garlic chopped
2 piece ginger chopped 2.5 cm
teaspoon cumin seeds 
1/2 teaspoon or more of turmeric
1 cup of green peas                     
2 green chilies  chopped
2 onion chopped
teaspoon nigella seeds            
1 1/2 tsp red chili powder       
1 1/2 tsp red chili flakes           
1/2 lemon juice               
teaspoon coriander powder  

Heat the oil, and add the onion, garlic, ginger, and cumin. Let it cook for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the spices. Add the potatoes and the green peas Let it cook for 6 minutes to infuse the spices at very low heat. Let it cool. 

Divide the dough in 10-12 pieces. Make a circle with a roll pin, and dived it in two pieces. With one half, make a cone, and fill it with the potatoes filling. Seal it in samosa shape. Fried them in hot oil and serve with cilantro-mint chutney. ENJOY!

By the way....I don't know what is happening with blogger, but it is getting very difficult for me to write comments in other blogs....I hope this issue is resolved soon!!
