Indian Spiced Puffs


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.




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


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 170C
  2. Peel and cut the potato into small cubes and boil until soft (about 7-8 minutes)
  3. 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).
  4. When the onion is soft add the spices and mix, then add the peas and mix until they are defrosted.
  5. 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.
  6. Roll out the pastry until it is as thin as a 2p coin, then slice into 12cm by 12cm squares.
  7. 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!)
  8.  Place onto a lined baking tray (with baking paper) and brush with some non-dairy milk.
  9. Bake for 20-25 or until the pastry starts to brown.
