Ingredients
 

  • 10 oz plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Water to mix

filling

  • 3 tbsps oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 lb potatoes scrubbed and cut into small dice
  • 2 carrots grated 2 oz green peas, shelled
  • 2 oz green beans chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Oil for deep frying

Instructions

  • Make the pastry by sifting the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl and adding enough water, a little at a time, to mix to a soft, pliable dough. Cover and leave to stand for 30 minutes,
  • Heat the 3 tbsps oil and fry the onion gently, until it is just soft. Stir in the potatoes and carrots and cook for 3 - 4 minutes.
  • Add the peas and beans to the potato mixture, cook for a further 2 minutes, then stir in the spices and lemon juice. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal sized balls. Roll each piece out on a floured board, to a thin circle about 15 cm (6 inches) in diameter.
  • Cut each circle in half. Dampen the straight edges of each semicircle and bring them together, overlapping slightly to make a cone.
  • Fill each cone as it is made with a little of the filling, then dampen the open edge and seal by pressing together firmly For extra firmness you may want to dampen and fold this edge over.
  • Heat the oil for frying. Fry the samosas, a few at a time, until they are golden brown on both sides. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
