Small chops are to Nigerian parties as oxygen is to humans. Maybe a bit of an exaggeration but we all know a Nigerian party without samosa is a questionable one. Now that’s why we are here, so if you are looking to make samosa at home this recipe is for you.
- 2 cups plain flour
- 3 cups vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 pcs Irish potatoes
- 200 grams minced meat
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 pc spring onions
- 1 pc seasoning cube
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 3 pinches cayenne pepper
1. To make the dough, pour the flour in a medium bowl with ¼ teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons of oil and mix till oil is well incorporated with the flour. Add about ¼ cup warm water and mix until soft and stretchy (but not too wet). Add more water if required.
2. On a clean surface knead the dough with your hands. Cover the dough with plastic wrap for about 20 minutes. Set aside.
3. To make the filling, peel and dice the potatoes and carrot and cook in water with salt for about 5 minutes or until soft. Chop the spring onions finely. Set aside. Pour oil into a frying pan and allow to heat for about 1 minute. Add in the spring onions, garlic, and curry. Allow to simmer for a bit.
4. Add the minced meat and allow to cook until it is no longer pink. Season with Maggi, ¼ teaspoon salt, and cayenne pepper. Add in the vegetables and allow to cook for about 4 minutes.
5. Divide the dough into about 8 portions. Using a rolling pin flatten the dough about 6 inches wide in a circular shape and then cut in half using a knife. Roll into the shape of a cone (seal edge by wetting it a bit), tip facing down and add in the filling. Fill up about ¾ way. Wet the edge to close it up.
6. Repeat for remaining dough.
7. Heat up oil on medium heat for a few minutes. Put the samosa into the oil (do not overcrowd) and deep fry until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel.
