I'd been dying to make samosas for quite a while ... wasn't sure what it would entail and if the dough was vegan, and then I found this great site:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://" target="_blank">http://www.indianfoodsco.com/Recipes/apetizer/Apetizers.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
The samosas are the third item down on this page, but the other things look really good too! Samosas are also delicious with carrots and/or spinach in the filling. I like to eat 'em with some mango chutney and some steamed rice.<br><br><br><br>
I found quite a few variations on this recipe. Some called for a bit of vinegar in the dough. Also, I think this site suggested that you could use a curry mix as a quick substitute for all the different seasonings.<br><br><br><br>
I can't wait to make some ... I was going to yesteray but got sidetracked.

I'm crap with indian food. I usually eat the british version of indian food. By the way, if anyone knows how to make a brilliant vegetarian rogan josh, then that'll keep me happy for the next few weeks!

Indian food <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"> I think it's the best food on the planet, right up there with vegan sushi and vegetable lasagna. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br><br><br><br>
Samosas are so yummy. I love the traditional ones and there were these mushroom and cheese ones that I tried that were great, too. I think about any veg combo w/curry spices would go well in a samosa. Yummy stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I like samosa but I only make them when I feel like rollign out a ton of pastry. be prepared to be doing that for a while if you are making a big batch. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I love samosas and other Indian (and West-Indian) food such as roti and choka or doubles. I find that when I don't have enough time to make the pastry (for the samosas) I buy it from a local health food store. However, if you are vegan, be careful and read the ingredients. Some samosa wrappers contain traces of egg.

Hmm. I've never seen a black mustard seed anywhere.<br><br><br><br>
Oh dear. I don't like to fry anything. No-one mentioned they involved frying. Both the dough <b>and</b> the vegetables.<br><br><br><br>
===================<br><br>
add the potatoes, carrot and peas. Tightly cover the pot and let the vegetables steam until they are fairly soft; this should take about 15 minutes.<br><br>
=================<br><br><br><br>
...dice into small pieces... I have steamed potatoes, carrots, and peas together. I know that the potatoes, in small diced pieces, where I live (at sea level), turn into total mush (you just touch them and they fall apart into smaller pieces) after 10 minutes of cooking. Cooking peas more than 3 minutes is way-overcooking them. Carrot are mush after about 16 minutes. You must be at a very high altitude Kreeli. If so, you should indicate that when you mention timing for steaming vegetables.

Soilman, some of the recipes I saw said you could fry OR bake them.<br><br><br><br>
Sorry, I still haven't made them. I did a bit of a cheat and made a curry potato casserole, using a pre-made curry paste instead of the individual spices. I used canned potatoes (such a lazy cook this week!), and threw in some carrots, spinach, peas, and chick peas, along with a few spoonfuls of curry paste and some water. Baked for 45 minutes -- instant dinner! It came out pretty good. I am still determined to make samosa dough -- maybe I can just use the leftover "casserole" as the filling.

as always, soilman, you should use your own judgement when making new recipes. if it seems like it won't work for you, because of altitude, or because of individual preference, be sure to make adjustments as you see fit.
