Vegetable Samosas

Introduction

Easy and quick to make, and requires no special kitchen tools! Pack a couple as an easy lunch, and they're especially delicious served with chutney! They can be made with ingredients most of us easily have around the house, and are a great way to use up extra ingredients. Easy and quick to make, and requires no special kitchen tools!

Ingredients

    For the Dough:
    2.5 cups Whole Wheat Flour
    1/2 cup Yogurt
    1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
    1/2 cup Milk
    1/2 teaspoon Salt

    For the Filling:
    1 cup vegetable stock - low sodium
    1 cup diced Carrot
    2 cup diced Potato
    1/3 cup Yellow Onion
    2/3 cup Black Beans
    1/2 cup Peas, canned, fresh or frozen
    1 tsp Curry Spice (not paste)
    1/2 tsp Cumin
    1 tsp Ginger (optional)
    Pinch of Cayenne
    1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup

Directions

Preheat oven at 425F.

Dice the carrots and potatoes and boil them on the stove until soft.

While they are boiling mix together the flour and salt, then add the applesauce, yogurt, and finally milk. Knead for a few minutes to ensure it's fully mixed. Store on the counter in a bowl covered with a moist cloth while preparing the filling.

When the carrots and potatoes are soft, drain them and move them to a sauce pan. Add the onion, optional ginger, vegetable stock, curry spice, cumin and cayenne spices. After 5 minutes add the remaining vegetables: peas, and beans.

Roll out the dough until it is approximately 0.5cm thick. (For Americans that's about 3/16 of an inch). Making them is easier than you think. Place about 1/4 cup of filling near the edge of your rolled out dough, and use a butter knife (to avoid harming your counter) to cut the dough about 2cm, or 3/4 of an inch around the pile of filling. If necessary use a spatula or the butter knife to loosen the dough from the counter before folding it up around the filling and pinching the top to form a drawstring bag like samosa.

This recipe will make about 9 of them this way. If you have trouble with the filling poking out through the dough, grab a small piece of dough from the main stash and form a little patch, sounds silly, but works really well!

Place them on a greased baking sheet, bake at 425F for 15 minutes, and then 350F for 10 more minutes. Simply open the oven door for a couple seconds between the temperature change. I also like to spray the tops of them with pam, adds a bit of a glazed look. Enjoy!
