Recipe Ingredients for Samosa

1 onions, minced
1 tbsp coriander
1 1/2 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 pound potatoes, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
10 ounce frozen peas, thawed and drained
9 sheets phyllo pastry, thawed
3 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp ginger

Recipe Directions for Samosa

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, sautee the onions in a bit of oil until they are soft, about 6 to 8 minutes.

  3. Add the coriander, cumin and cayenne, and cook for another minute. Remove from heat and add the potatoes, peas and cilantro, stirring to mix well. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.

  4. Stack 3 or 4 sheets of phyllo together, and slice into 4 even rectangles with a pair of kitchen shears. Continue with the rest of the phyllo, then cover with plastic wrap.

  5. Place two or three tablespoons of the potato and peas mix in a corner of the dough, then roll the corner towards the center. Fold in the left and right corners, then roll up again.

  6. Place each samosa on a baking sheet, and lightly brush the tops with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
