Toor Dahl Samosas

Smoked toor dhal samosas

The smoky flavour of these toor dhal samosas makes them extra delicious.

These toor dahl samosas are delicious! I love the smoked toor dhal filling.

This is a vegetarian samsosa recipe I learned at a street food stall on a recent trip to Mumbai. It’s so good! The smoky flavour of these vegetarian toor dahl samosas really makes them special.

As you will see in the photos below, I used a Traeger smoker to smoke the dhal but there is another way of doing it that is really easy. All is explained in the method.

I like to serve these with tamarind sauce and coriander and mint raita.  These special vegetarian samosas are also good with lime juice squeezed over the top just before popping them into your mouth.

I used shop bought samosa wrappers for this one. They are really convenient and turn out nice and crispy. Another way to do it is to make your own pastry as I do in meat samosa recipe. This takes a little more time but gets awesome results.

Add the cooked toor dhal and allow it to simmer down until it is thick enough to be used as a filling.

Smoke the cooked dhal however you want. I used a Traeger smoker but I mention another way to do it without a smoker below.

Time to fold your samosas. Take your samosa wrapper and fold the top left-hand corner to the right.

Now fold the top right corner over to the left. This will make a triangular pocket.
