Samosa Pie January 17, 2015

I love samosa’s so when I came across this recipe and saw that I had most things at home I knew I had to make it. I will say that it wasn’t as good as the original samosas. Part of what I love about them is the dough/filling ratio which is much less in this recipe. The flavors overall are good.


  • 3 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • ½ cup minced fresh cilantro

Heat ghee or butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until golden and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Add jalapeno and garlic; cook 1 minute more.

Stir in ground turkey, garam masala, turmeric and 1½ tsp salt. Cook until chicken is no longer pink.

Stir in diced potatoes and water; cover pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Stir in peas, carrots and cilantro. Taste, and adjust seasoning – you’ll probably need more salt.

Transfer mixture to a 2-quart (2 L) baking dish. Roll out pastry and place over top. Cut a few steam vents.

Bake at 400 degrees until crust is golden brown, about 25 minutes.
