Turkey Samosas only 20p EACH !
We had several children over for tea last night, and I thought I would shy away from the usual pizza and chips, I had picked up some reduced Turkey mince and I had a bit of a brain wave. I always try and show my children different foods and tastes, and some times they like it and sometimes I get a big “JOG ON !” but it is always worth a try.
This worked out super frugal at around 20p for the turkey samosas, and I made my own pastry which was simple, cheap as chips and much tastier than I expected. These can also accommodate a whole batch of fillings, so use up veg, meat or even cheese with these.
For these turkey samosas you will need….
250g Turkey mince
2 carrots grated
1 onion chopped finely
2 tbsp curry powder
2 tsp salt
4 cups of plain flour
1 tbsp coconut oil
Oil for frying
Heat some coconut oil in a large pan and add the onion , fry until they are clear, add the mince and the carrots and fry until the mince is no longer pink – you want to make sure your turkey samosas are well cooked.
Add the 1 tsp of salt and the curry powder and mix well. Feel free to add potatoes, sweetcorn etc to the mix.
Put the flour, salt and softened butter into a large mixing bowl and slowly add water, your aim is to make the dough form a ball that will be stretchy and not too sticky. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes, I always imagine someone that has hacked me off, and before I know it, I have a perfect dough ball.
Turn it out onto a floured surface and pull the dough into 8 pieces (if you want big samosa leave the balls bigger, if you want small ones, make smaller balls !)
Roll out the balls into a circular shape and cut down the middle of each circle. Wet the edges of the pastry and roll up into a cone, push some of the mince ingredients into the cone, but try not to overfill it. Seal the edges and get ready to deep frying.
Deep fry them until they are a light brown colour and place them on kitchen towel to absorb the access oil. Wait for several minutes before serving, We also made a batch of feta cheese samosa’s as we had a vegetarian in the group and they were equally yummy.
