Adam’s Indian Samosa Pie

Indian Samosa Pie Recipe

Our kids love samosas. One day after making them a batch, I had some left-over mixture and not a lot of pastry. I thought this could make a great pie, so here is the result. You can add any vegetable to the mix — just grate it before adding.

  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 cup green beans, chopped

  • Preheat oven to 200ºC.
  • To make crust, place flour, oil and salt in bowl and mix well. Add water (add 1 tbsp at a time while stirring, until dough holds together). Shape into flat disc, then place in fridge to rest while you make filling.
  • To make filling, place chopped potatoes in saucepan of water on high heat and cover. Bring to boil and cook potatoes until just tender (about 10 mins). When potatoes are cooked, drain and return to saucepan.
