Did you mean: samosas with puff pastry instead of filo?
Yes I did – this method is much easier as puff pastry (in the UK at least) can be bought ready made and it’s vegan!
These are literally so easy and delicious, I definitely recommend them alongside a curry or just on their own as a lunch or snack.
MAKES ABOUT 12-14 PUFFS
500g puff pastry
200g white potato
1 small red onion
100g frozen peas
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp mild chili powder
1 tsp cumin
- Pre-heat your oven to 170C
- Peel and cut the potato into small cubes and boil until soft (about 7-8 minutes)
- Dice the onion into very small pieces, then place into a frying pan with some oil (I just used a few sprays of frylight but any amount will work).
- When the onion is soft add the spices and mix, then add the peas and mix until they are defrosted.
- Add the potato, season, and mix until everything is coated in spices, then take off the heat and set aside while you make the pastry.
- Roll out the pastry until it is as thin as a 2p coin, then slice into 12cm by 12cm squares.
- Place about a tablespoon of filling into the centre of the square, then dip your finger into some water and wet the edges, finally fold one corner to the opposite corner to make a triangle and pinch the sides together. (I’ve attached a cringe video below showing me doing it!)
- Place onto a lined baking tray (with baking paper) and brush with some non-dairy milk.
- Bake for 20-25 or until the pastry starts to brown.
