Gluten Free Samosas

Gluten Free Samosas

Ingredients

Samosa Pastry

  • 225g Eurostar gluten free plain flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 75g natural yogurt
  • 50ml vegetable oil, plus oil
  • Water

 Samosa Filling

  • 2 medium potatoes, chopped and boiled
  • 2 tsp Garam masala or spices of your choice (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 50g/2 oz frozen peas, defrosted

Method

  1. Mix gluten free flour, xanthan gum, salt, and cumin seeds
    2. Mix yogurt and oil with flour to create a dough. Add enough water to bring it together to a smooth dough
    3. Rest dough
    4. Prep filling by shallow frying oil, Garam Masala. Add boiled potato, peas, salt and coriander and cook for 4 mins. Leave to cool
    5. Roll small amounts of dough into a ball. Roll out a thin chapatti. There are different ways to do this but our quick cheat is to cut the circular chapati in half. Fold into a triangular shape and fill the triangle carefully closing the top using a drop of water.
    6. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the samosas on a slow flame until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and allow to cool before serving.
