    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1 medium carrot, chopped
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 tsp each crushed garlic and ginger
    1 cup lentils, soaked
    2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
    garam masala and other spices to taste
    2 cup flour
    2 tbsp butter
    2 tbsp yogurt
    0.5 cup water


Makes 16 small samosas.

Fry the onion in the olive oil until golden. Add the carrot, celery, ginger, garlic, and spices and cook over medium heat until soft (5 minutes). Add the lentils and broth, bring to boil and reduce heat. Simmer for 30-45 minutes until the liquid is gone and the vegetables are soft. Add more liquid during cooking as needed. Check spices and add curry, cumin, turmeric, salt, and/or pepper to your taste.

Meanwhile, combine the dough items together (flour, butter, yogurt), then add water. Mix well until it forms a firm dough. Roll into a ball, wrap with plastic and chill for 30 minutes or more.

Split the dough into 4 pieces. Take one piece, split it into 4 pieces, and form each into a small ball. Keep the pieces that you aren't currently working with covered so that they don't dry out. Roll out each small piece on a well-floured work surface until it forms a 4-inch diameter disk. Spoon some of the filling into the middle, moisten the edge of the dough with water, then fold over and pinch to close.

Bake the samosas on a greased or lined baking pan in a 350F oven for about 30 minutes until golden. Turn them over as needed for even browning.
