Sometimes we have the craving for a lovely hot crispy samosa but we dont want to go through all the effort making it!! Well bread samosas are the perfect solution for one of those kind of days. You can use any vegetable, meat or the typical potato and pea filling. I am dedicating this recipe to the bread company “BIMBO” in Spain because they sent me a lovely hamper of their products to try out and i made these bread samosas out of their lovely sliced bread and dedicated it to them. Thank you soo much BIMBO SPAIN…your products are a class apart.
Ok now some people bake their bread samosas but i deep fried mine so they were crispy tho i did find them oily…if you have an electric sandwich maker you can pop yours in those too.
POTATO AND PEAS FILLING
1 cup boiled, peeled potatoes cut into cubes
1/2 cup of boiled shelled green peas
1/4 cup of finely chopped onion
juice of lime to taste
roast and grind together 1/2 t4easpoon each of Nitu Didi cumin seeds and fennel seeds
1 teaspoon of Nitu Didi coriander powder
green chillies and chopped coriander leaves to taste
a pinch of turmeric powder
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
Mix the potatoes with the peas and all the spices , green chillies , coriander leaves, lemon juice and keep aside. Take a slice of bread and wet your palms. Put a bit of the potatopeas mixture on one corner of the bread and fold it to shape into a triangle. Press the edges together with your palms. Since they are wet they will help you to bind the triangle together. Press well so that when you deep fry it the edges wont open out. Use up all the filling in the same way and then heat the oil and deep fry the triangles till golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and then serve with sauce of your choice
NITU DIDI TIP: You can also toast these in the oven… brush them with a bit of butter and put them into a baking tray and bake them till nice and toasted
