Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups potatoes cut into 1 cm pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower florets cut into 1 cm pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup stock add more if needed
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For baking:

  • 1 package at least 12 egg roll wrappers (square, 6 x 6 inches roughly)
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan.
  • Add the onion, carrots and potatoes, and cook, stirring frequently for 5 minutes.
  • Add the cauliflower florets, garlic, ginger and spices, and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  • Add the stock, cover the pan, and cook for 15 minutes, until potatoes are soft.
  • Remove lid and cook down until liquids are largely gone (5-10 more minutes), mashing the mixture as it cooks.
  • Stir in the chickpeas and lemon juice.
  • Allow mixture to cool slightly before folding the samosas.
  • To BakePre-heat oven to 425°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
  • Cut a 6 inch egg roll wrapper to make it perfectly square, then cut in half to make two triangles.
  • Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of filling in the middle, then brush the edges lightly with water.
  • Fold the triangle over on itself, pressing firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining edge, and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Repeat with all remaining samosas, until no filling remains.
  • Brush samosas with beaten egg, then bake for 12-14 minutes, until slightly golden and crispy.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • To freeze:Cool samosas completely, then place on a baking sheet and freeze for one hour before transfering to a large freezer bag. Freeze for up to 1 month.
  • To re-heat:Microwave for 20 seconds fresh from the fridge, or multiple 30 second increments if re-heating from frozen.
