HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE & EASY VEGETARIAN SAMOSAS

For some reason, I was really craving an Asian’s favourite today – somosas! I love the large vegetarian puffy ones (I know, great somosa terminology) but couldn’t find them anywhere and so here is a very simple recipe (and my firIMG-20151107-WA0019st on this blog) to make your own!

You will need:

For the dough: Water, self raising flour, salt, oil

For the somosa filling:

Potatoes

1 onion

Peas (you can add any other frozen veg if you want)

Optional – sweet chilli sauce for some savoury flavouring, or your favourite herbs/fresh crushed chilli

+ oil to fry them in

Instructions:

Add the salt to the flour, and rub the oil into it. Add water and knead into a stiff dough. Flatten the dough using a rolling pin.

Meanwhile, chop IMG-20151107-WA0012and fry the onion into tiny chunks.

Boil the potatoes and mash them with a potato masher or simply use a spoon, as I did.

Stir the peas into the mash once they have unfrozen as well as the fried onion. At this point, you can choose to add any herbs/spices to spicen the filling up. I simply added some sweet chilli sauce.

Using a somosa cutter, (or if you haven’t got one, then you can use a knife to make diamond cut outs) fill the centre with a spoonful of the mix and seal the edges with a fork. Note: These somosas will look best if you make them larger than typical ones as they will be softer!IMG-20151107-WA0018

Simply let them fry in some oil 🙂

You could even make your own chutney/sauce to compliment the somosas. I simply mixed mint, garlic and chilli sauces, but if you want to go the extra mile you could make a proper chutney with things like fresh chilli, crushed garlic, tomatoes or onions 😀
