Samosas are perfect for a weekend aperitif or for a meal. We all love these little things that are crispy on the outside and rich in flavor on the inside. The leek, carrot and curry combination is delicious. Of course, I add fresh cilantro. and I accompany these samosas with a small yogurt-based dip.
To be honest with you, I usually cook my samosas in the oven. But, here, I wanted to test air fryer cooking. I just put this device on my workbench, and I intend to do more and more things with it. I was already using this type of cooking to make potatoes. Now I’m going to learn how to do everything else with it, especially to avoid using the oven. These samosas were the first try. I was really surprised at the speed. In 10 minutes they were as you see them in the photos.
That being said, you can absolutely make them in the oven. I will give you the temperature and the time for both in the recipe.
Vegetable and curry samosas:
1 tsp curry
20 brick sheets
2 tbsp Greek yogurt
1 clove of garlic
Mince the onion.
Finely chop the leek and coarsely grate the carrots.
Sauté the onion in a little oil.
Add the carrots and leek and cook over medium heat for about ten minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add the curry, season and mix.
Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro.
Lay a pastry sheet on the work surface and cut it in two.
Brush the 2 pieces with oil and fold over lengthwise.
Place a spoonful of filling at the bottom, and fold up.
Tuck the end in to close.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Place the samosas on a baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes.
(In the air fryer, preheat to 195°C for 3 minutes, then cook for 10/12 minutes. It will take 2 batches)
Mix the yogurt, grated garlic, a little coriander and season.
Serve the samosas hot or warm with the sauce.
Finally: I offer a vegetarian version. You can absolutely add a small fillet of finely chopped chicken.
Next time I add raisins. I think it should be delicious.
Of course, the problem with this recipe is the folding. It’s harder to explain than to do. I will put a video on pinterest. Do not hesitate to consult it.
On the other hand, I used square sheets, which I do not recommend. The rounds are bigger and it’s easier.
