Samosas

I can’t think of a single person I know that doesn’t love Samosas! I like to use Chicken mince over Lamb mince because I prefer the flavour overall. Bonus – Air fried samosas taste just as delicious as deep fried samosas.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp ghee/oil
  • 3 onion (diced)
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 6-7 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 2-3 green chillies (crushed)
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • salt
  • 1kg chicken mince
  • A handful of copped coriander
  • 20-25 samosa pastry sheets
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp water

Method

  • Step 1

    In a pan over medium heat, saute the oil and add the onions, garlic, ginger and green chilli. Fry for 5 minutes until very light golden

  • Step 2

    Add all the spices and salt, then fry for a minute before stirring in the mince. Cover and cook on low for 45 minutes, or till the meat is cooked. It may seem like a long time but the mince needs to be dried out

  • Step 3

    Uncover and if there is any water remaining, keep the mixture on the heat until it dries out as much as possible

  • Step 4

    Add in the chopped coriander and leave to cool

  • Step 5

    Make a paste from the flour and water and set aside

  • Step 6

    Carefully strip out one sheet from the pastry bundle and lay it straight

  • Step 7

    Cover the remaining pastry with a damp muslin cloth

  • Step 8

    Place a small portion of the samosa mixture onto the left corner. Fold into a triangle and continue to turn until there is a thin rectangular bit of pastry left hanging

  • Step 9

    Seal the samosa by adding a little paste to the remaining edge, then fold and press in gently

  • Step 10

    Repeat the process for the rest of the samosas

  • Step 11

    Preheat the grill using the Air Fryer function for 5 minutes on high. Brush the samosas with oil

  • Step 12

    Arrange 7 – 8 samosas in the basket and cook for 15 – 18 minutes or until golden brown turning in between. Repeat the process for the remaining Samosas
