The other day we felt like having finger food and decided to make samosas for the first time. I’ve had samosas at several Indian restaurants and I love how they are crispy on the outside and warm, spicy and moist on the inside. It is always such a joy to take that first bite and savor it and then devour the whole thing in matter of seconds because it just tastes so great. One of my sister in-laws and her husband gave us an Indian cookbook, Complete Indian Cooking, for a wedding gift and I have used it many times and tried new recipes. I was glancing at it again the other day and found a samosa recipe. I modified it slightly, but I think the samosas came out nicely. I made two kinds, Potato & Pea Samosas and Lamb & Pea Samosas. I also decided to bake them instead of frying them, and not because I wanted them healthier, I just didn’t want to deal with the frying mess that day as after all it was my lazy day. We each ended up having four samosas that day because they were so tasty, fresh and crisp and they went beautifully with our quick Mint-Coconut Yogurt Chutney (recipe below). Here is the recipe for our samosas and hope you enjoy!
