Happy cooking, happy eating

Aloo samosa

on May 6, 2011

If I’ve learned anything from my mom about cooking, it is putting left overs to good use. It all started when I thought trying mashed potato mix from Sainsbury’s would be a good idea. Well it would be, if us desi’s were used to eating mashed potatoes, british style! Anyway, so I bought the mix and made some yesterday with my trial French Bread (and cheeeeeese!). It turned out quite nice actually, but there was tons left.. And yesterday’s left over mashed potatoes plus chopped veggies wrapped in plain flour wrap = Today’s Aloo Samosay

Here’s how I did it;


Store bought mashed potato mix or boil 3 medium sized potatoes, boiled, and mashed.
Chopped or Dried Basil
Crushed Red Chilli
Lemon Juice
White Pepper
Coriander Powder
Chaat Masala
Mix chopped vegies + peas
Plain Flour


1. Add the spices to mashed potatoes and mix.
2. Add chopped veggies and lemon juice and mix.
3. Add a pinch of salt to the flour and mix. Knead with oil until soft.
4. Separate the dough in small pieces and flatten them into round root like bases.
5. Cut each circle in half and put some potato mix on it.
6. Wrap the base around potato mix to form a triangle. Repeat for each samosa.
7. Fry (I fried shallow) the samosa until golden brown.
8. Enjoy with chilli garlic sauce/ketchup.
