I was SO excited to try this recipe, but it kinda fell flat.  I even added more seasonings, more onions, and even shredded carrots, but it just seamed dry and kinda blah (yes, I read chutney would have helped).  I felt like it was a mouthful of starch.  It was a seriously innovative dish, though, and that is awesome. 


I have been meaning to make these for a long time because I love samosas, but hate that they are usually deep fried.  For once I had potatoes in the house so I finally got to make them.  I added garam masala spice to the potatoes.  I agree with the other post-ers that these would be much better served with a chutney.  Even though I had potatoes on hand, I unfortunately didn't have the ingredients to make a suitable chutney...


This was easy and yummy. The only real alteration I made was to add 1 teaspoon of nutmeg to the mix. I served it with a nice mango chutney. I think the key to making this meal great is the chutney/salsa. Next time I will try with some different chutneys. Will definately make again!


I made mine with mashed sweet potatoes, peas, corn, carrots (frozen)... sauteed onion... added the curry & spices!  This was a divine treat!  Soooooo easy & cheap to make!!!  Thank you thank you thank you!!! ;)b


I started out to make this because I thought I had flour tortillas left, but I ended up using corn, and they were tasty. I added a little fresh, sauteed spinach, and used coriander, cayenne, and turmeric in addition to the curry. These are simple and tasty (would be a nice appetizer). I didn't have any dipping sauce, but I think a cilantro chutney would be fabulous!
