Samosas


I LOVE Indian food, their colours, food, culture,...Did I mention FOOD?!

em>Dough:
450 g plain flour
100 g butter, softened
1 teas salt
150 ml water, warm
Filling:
2 tbs vegetable oil, or any other neutral
2 medium onions, chopped finally
250 g minced meat, your choice
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1-1,5 cm ginger, grated - or 1/2 teas powder
1/2 teas turmeric powder
2 teas coriander powder
1 1/2 teas cumin powder
a pinch of chilli powder
1/2 teas salt
120 ml water
150 g peas
2 tbs coconut, grated
1 teas 'Garam Masala' powder
2 tbs coriander leaves, chopped
1 tbs lemon juice

-Make a stiff dough (food processor can help, divide in 6 balls, cover with Glad wrap and leave rest.
-Meanwhile, heat the oil and add onions. Fry for a couple of minutes, then add mince and the spices. When meat is ready (loses pink colour)add the rest of ingredients. Cook for a few minutes more, and then let it cool. Heat the oven to 200*C, if you want to bake the Samosas.
-Roll out the dough balls (one by one)into a 23-24 cm circle. Each circle divide in 6 pieces (like pizza slices). Wet the edges with a brush dipped into water.
-On each little triangle put a spoonful of filling. Lift the corners of each triangle,and seal the edges with your fingers, applying pressure.
-Place Samosas on baking sheets, sprayed with oil, then spray all over again.Bake 10-12 min, or until slightly golden.
Samosas can be deep fried, if you're not concerned about the fat content.
Note: If you replace the meat with grated potatoes, you'll get Vegetarian Samosas.







Tijesto za Samose:
450 gr brasna
100 gr putera, omeksalog
1 kasicica soli
1.5 dl vode, mlake
Nadjev:
2 kasike ulja, po izboru
2 glavice crvenog luka, srednje velicine, sjeckanog
250 gr mljevenog mesa, po izboru
3-4 cena bijelog luka, protisnutog
1-1,5 cm djumbira (ginger),ribanog ili 1/2 kasicice prah
1/2 kasicice turmerik, prah
2 kasicice korijandera, prah
1 1/2 kasicica kima, prah
malo chilija (prah ili sjeckan svjez)
1/2 kasicice soli
120 ml vode
150 gr graska
2 kasike kokosa, ribanog
1 kasicica ‘garam masala’
2 kasike lista korijandera, sjeckanog
1 kasika limunovog soka
Postupak:
Umijesite tijesto (moze i u elekricnoj sjeckalici), koje ce izgledati poprilicno tvrdo. Podijelite na 6 loptica, pokrijte prozirnom folijom i ostavite odmarati dok kuhate nadjev. Za nadjev – zagrijte ulje, proprzite luk te dodajte meso (dinstajte dok ne promijeni boju), bijeli luk te sve ostale zacine i vodu. Kuhajte jos par minuta. Smaknite da se prohladi. Prvu lopticu tijesta razvucite u krug velicine 23-24 cm (malo vece od desertnog tanjira). Krug podijelite na 6 jednakih dijelova (trokuti kao za kiflice). Uglove premazite vodom, a u sredinu stavite po kasiku nadjeva.
Oblikovanje piramida:
Uglove trougla dignete, a stranice blago pritisnete prstima dok se ne zalijepe. Redajte na pleh. Pospricajte uljanim sprejom i pecite na 200* C 10 -12 min.
Mozete ih i prziti u dubokoj posudi sa dosta ulja, ukoliko ne brinete o masnoci.
Napomena:
Ukoliko zelite vegetarijansku verziju, umjesto mesa ubacite sitno sjeckani krompir.
