Easy Peasy Potato Samosas

What you need: 

oil, as needed for frying
1 teaspoon curry powder
3 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2" cubes
1 (12 ounce) can peas
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup water

What you do: 

1. In a wok, heat the frying oil and curry. Add the potatoes and cook over low high heat for 10 minutes. Add the peas when the potatoes are almost done. Set aside and let cool.
2. While the potatoes are cooking, mix flour, salt, olive oil, and water to make the dough. Make sure it's smooth and stretchy.
3. Divide dough into balls; the size is up to you. Flatten them into little disks with a roller on a floured surface. Personally I like itty bitty bite-sized ones, but you can experiment with different sizes!
4. Place some cooled potato/pea filling into the disks. You want them to be nice and full, but leave enough room to close them so none of the filling falls out. Press the ends together using water if needed.
5. Heat some more frying oil in a deep pan, and fry the rolled up samosas in groups of 4 or so until sizzling and deep brown.
Spinach would also be amazing in this, as would cauliflower. Serve with a curry dipping sauce or on its own. It's usually an appetizer but I don't mind eating it as its own meal! My non-vegan friend devoured these and wanted to make them for themselves.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

 because the suggested amount of water was way too much and made everything a gross, sticky mess. Those that I (barely) got to form ended up tasting bland. I was definitely disappointed with this recipe.

I'm sorry that these didn't turn out well for you guys! I've made them successfully twice... but I noticed that these are NOT the instructions that I sent in! I'm not sure how many changes VegWeb made, but I never say "wok" and I don't flatten these! I'll try to find my recipe and submit the changes in a comment later.

samosas are great in taste with green ketchup(pudhina - mint leaves) ..
directions are not good. In order to create tasty samosas we need atleast 1 ltr oil to fry them.

I've made samosas before that turned out great. So decided to try this recipe and followed it exactly and it turned out a complete mess. I had to add way more flour than called for because the suggested amount of water was way too much and made everything a gross, sticky mess. Those that I (barely) got to form ended up tasting bland. I was definitely disappointed with this recipe.
