Directions

Combine water, oil, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and whisk the mixture until it has a milky appearance.
Combine with flour in a large bowl to make the dough.
Lightly knead the dough just until mixed well.
Form into a ball and let sit for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the filling:
Heat oil in a skillet.
Saute onions and carrots for 1 minute.
Sprinkle with salt and curry powder and add chopped spinach.
Cover and steam over medium heat until spinach wilts and the carrots are tender, about 5 minutes. Season with tamari.

Dissolve kudzu in 1/4 cup water, add to spinach mixture, and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, to thicken.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Divide the dough in half and roll out until about 1/8" thick. Using a small plate as a guide cut the dough into 4" circles.
Place 2 tablespoons of filling in the middle of each circle, fold over and pinch the edge shut.
Using a fork, poke a few holes in each samosa. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
Can be served hot or cold.
