Indian Samosas


Large egg roll wrappers
1 package


Lean beef or lamb – finely ground
6 ounces
Cooked potato – diced
1 medium
Green peas – cooked
¼ cup
Onion –grated
1 medium
Garlic cloves – crushed
Fresh ginger – grated ( ½”)
1 piece
Curry powder
2 tsp
Chilli powder
½ tsp
¼ tsp
1 tsp
Black pepper
¼ tsp
2 tbsp
Lemon juice
1 tbsp
Fresh coriander or mint – chopped
1 tbsp

Cover the egg roll wrappers with a damp cloth until needed.

Mix the filling ingredients except the butter, lemon juice and chopped herbs and fry in the butter until just cooked through. Sprinkle on approximately 2 tablespoons of water and increase the heat until the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice and herbs. Stir well and leave to cool.

Cut the egg roll wrappers into 1 ¾ inch strips. To prepare the samosas using egg roll wrapper strips, turn one end over to make a triangular shaped pocket, then turn again in the opposite direction. Fill the cavity with a spoonful of the cooked filling and continue folding until the whole strip has been used and a triangular shaped pastry results. Seal the end with water or a paste made from flour and water.

Heat oil for deep frying to fairly hot and fry the samosas, several at a time, until golden and crisp. Serve hot with a fresh mint chutney.
