Fate Samosas

PASTRY

  • 150g Fate All-Purpose Mix
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 50g hard margarine
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 8Omls water

FILLING

  • 150g diced sweet potato, boiled until tender.
  • 50g finely chopped onion
  • salt and pepper
  • 1-2 tsp Madras curry powder, or other allowed spice mixture
  • Oil for frying

METHOD

  1. First make the pastry
    1. Place the Fate All-Purpose Mix and salt into a bowl.
    2. Rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
    3. Stir in the baking powder.
    4. Make a well in the centre and pour in the water. Use a metal spoon to mix it until it forms a dough. Leave it to rest for a couple of minutes.
  2. To prepare the filling-
    1. Place the diced sweet potato (it must be cooled) into a bowl and add the onion.
    2. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the curry powder.
  3. To prepare the Samosas
    1. Take the pastry and knead it lightly just a couple of times, on a surface dusted with extra All-Purpose Mix.
    2. Roll it out and cut it into large circles about 6 – 8 ins in diameter (Use a small plate to cut around or use a saucepan lid).
    3. Cut each circle in half.
    4. Take one half circle of pastry and moisten the straight edge with a little water.
    5. Fold the pastry to form a triangular pocket, overlapping the edge slightly. Press the moistened edge well to seal.
    6. Open the end and place about 2tsp of filling inside. Moisten the edges of the top of the samosa and press together to close.
  4. Pour enough oil in a frying pan to just cover the base and fry the samosas just a few at a time for a minute or so each side until brown and crisp.

Note

The Samosas can be frozen, but it is best to lightly cook the onion first in a little oil in a pan, and cool before adding to the other filling ingredients.
