Samosas are one of those things in Indian culture that you will find all over the country. North, East, South, West. No joke…in every corner of India, it’s a very common snack that’s served up with tea when you guests over. It was time for me to come up with a recipe that was fast and easy to serve up when I also had guests over! 

If you’re unsure of what a samosa is, it’s basically an Indian fried/baked dish that has a savory filling like potatoes, peas, or ground meat with spices! It tends to be triangular in shape, and is usually served up with a side of mint chutney! I made my creamy cilantro dipping sauce and it paired really well! You can find the recipe from my Keema Puff post a few weeks ago!

  2. In a small saute pan, heat your EVOO on medium to high heat. Add your cumin seeds and let it sputter for just a moment. Now add the onion, ginger, garlic and saute for a few minutes as the onion starts to get a little translucent. Add in the peas, curry powder, garlic powder and give it a good stir. Fry for about 3-4 minutes. immaculate baking, samosa recipe, love alfa, indian recipes, easy indian holiday recipes, indian appetizers, crescent roll recipes
  3.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Add the pea and onion mixture into the bowl with the mashed potatoes. If at this point you’d like to add some heat, add your cayenne powder. Then, add the ghee and give the whole mixture a good stir. immaculate baking, samosa recipe, love alfa, indian recipes, easy indian holiday recipes, indian appetizers, crescent roll recipes
  4. Let the mixture cool while you prep the crescent rolls. Open the cans and unroll the dough. Separate the 4 rectangles  and pinch the triangular perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle in half crosswise to make squares. For each can of crescent rolls, you’ll end up with 8 squares. You may have to handle the dough gentle with your hands to make it square to close up those perforations. Take a heaping spoonful of filling in the center of each square and fold over to make a triangle. Pinch all the edges to seal. immaculate baking, samosa recipe, love alfa, indian recipes, easy indian holiday recipes, indian appetizers, crescent roll recipes
