Like curry house style vegetable samosas? You’ll love these!
Who doesn’t love a good samosa? I must order them every time I go out for a curry.
The problem is I like samosas like these vegetable samosas a little too much.
Paying what is usually a quite steep price for three samosas on a plate just doesn’t get it.
Vegetable samosas are easy to make.
As vegetable samosas and for that matter meat samosas are so easy to make, you might want to make your own.
Save your curry house starters for more difficult dishes like prawn puri or prawn butterfly. They are much better value for money when eating out.
These vegetable samosas are excellent served as a starter or canape when making a curry feast for friends and/or family.
What about the wrappers?
Authentic vegetable samosas are made with homemade wrappers. I demonstrate how to do this in this video on my YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe when you’re there as I have a lot more cooking videos on the way.
At most curry houses, you are much more likely to get samosas made with ready-made samosa pastry. That is what I use in this recipe.
You can find samosa wrappers at most Asian grocers in the freezer section. You could also use Chinese spring roll wrappers which are the same thing but in a different shape.
If using spring roll wrappers, just cut them into long strips.
Following are step by step photos of how to make vegetable samosas.
Heat your oil to 170c (338f) and fry the samosas in batches for about 3 minutes per batch.
