Samosa and green dipping sauce
« on: December 10, 2011, 12:38:32 PM »
I wonder if anyone has a recipe for samosa and the green dipping sauce that goes iwth them?  I think it is a green mango sauce.
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

It's coriander chutney. If you can wait until tomorrow, I can post recipes for both.
Ask for what you want. Let's be clear on this one:
Subtle hints don't work.
Strong hints don't work.
Really obvious hints don't work.
Just say it!

Here you go:


Mint-Coriander Chutney

1 Bunch fresh mint
1 Bunch fresh cilantro (coriander)
6-8 Garlic cloves
1-inch piece of ginger, coarsley chopped
1 Hot green chili
1 tsp Sugar
tsp Salt
2 tsp Lime juice

Cut off roots from both mint and cilantro
Peel garlic and remove stalks from green chilis.
Wash all ingredients
Put all ingredients in a food processor and grind.
Chill and serve

Samosas
*For pastry:
 2 Cup      Flour
 1/2 teaspoon  Salt
4 Tablespoon    Vegetable or canola oil
6 Tablespoon    Water

For stuffing:
 5 med      Potatoes
 4 Tablespoon     Vegetable or canola oil
 1 med      Onion, peeled and finely chopped
 1 Cup  Peas
 1 Tablespoon Grated ginger
 1  Hot green chili
 3 Tablespoon   Chopped cilantro
 1 teaspoon    Salt
 1 teaspoon    Ground coriander
 1 teaspoon     Garam masala
 1 teaspoon     Ground cumin seeds
 Oil for brushing

1. For Pastry: Mix flour and salt in a bowl
2. Add 4 Tbsp oil and rub until the mixture resembles course breadcrumbs.
3. Slowly add about 6 Tbsp water and knead the dough for about 10 minutes or until smooth.
4. Rub dough with oil. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
5. For Stuffing: Boil, cool and peel the potatoes. Dice into 1/4 inch size.
6. Heat 4 Tbsp oil in a heave bottom pan over medium heat.
7. Add onion and stir fry until golden brown over medium heat
8. Add peas, ginger, green chili, and cilantro. Stir
9. Add diced potatoes, salt and all spices
10. Mix and cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
11. To Make Samosas: Knead the dough again.
12. Divide into 10 balls.
13. Roll each ball into a flat, round shape about 5 inches in diameter.
14. Cut each circle in half. Make the half into a cone by sticking edges together with water.
15. Fill the cone with about 2 1/2 Tbsp of filling.
16. Seal the top of the cone with water. The seam should be about 1/4 inch wide.
17. Repeat with rest of dough.
18. Brush samosas with oil, place on cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, turning about half way through cook time.
Traditional samosas should be deep-fried, but to cut down on fat and calories I prefer to bake them. Makes about 20 samosas

*Edited to add that all the Indian (born in India) cooks I know use frozen pastry dough instead of making their own.

Thank you, Judah!  I can't wait to try them.  I wasn't sure anyone would have these recipes and am so glad you did and are willing to share them!

Aarti has a great "baked samosas" recipe on her Youtube channel from before she was a star

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6hdT3Sx4YI

(a bit too full of ingredients in the filling, IMO) And links to printed recipes online for samosas and sauce

Thank you.  That looks delicious.  I book marked it so I can try it.  I remember when she won the contest for her own food channel show.  I wonder if she is still on.
