Giant Potato and Cauliflower Filo Samosa
"This samosa, despite being almost made from scratch is so easy to make and a lot healthier than the regular deep fried samosas, it contains potato and cauliflower and some spices and it is seriously delicious. Another aspect that I also like about this recipe is that filling is made in one pot and then literally layer some pastry, in a few words, it’s as easy as pie to put this together. This Sri Lankan inspired vegetarian recipe is a pie-like snack or it can make a beautiful meal on its own, nice in taste."
NotesThis recipe will make two pies. Do you guys throw away the greens/ leaves from the cauliflower?! Oh, nooo!! Please don’t! They’re super delicious and such a shame to waste them. I used them here in this recipe washed thoroughly and chopped. Super tasty * Coriander powder it’s super easy to make it at home - by simply roasting the seeds and then putting them in an electric grinder. Coriander powder is great to have in pantry cupboard as it is a great addition to any soup, in casseroles, stews, curries, and marinades.
Preparation Time15 min
Cooking Time20 min
- 900 g of organic potatoes peeled and cubed
- 15 pastry sheets
- 50 ml oil or butter
- 1 leak halved and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cauliflower head washed and made into small florets
- 1/2 tsp of fresh grated ginger
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 tsp coriander powder *
- 4 spring onions finely chopped
- 1/4 tsp black pepper freshly ground
Chop onion and place into a deeper pan with 1 tbsp oil or butter along with the garlic, seeds and chilli if you choose to use. Cook for 2 min covered stirring occasionally.
Add the finely shaded leek and cook for a further 2 min covered.
Add the curry powder, black pepper, salt, turmeric powder and the cubed potatoes. Stir well and add a drizzle or two of water or milk. Cook covered for 10 mins stirring from time to time.
Add the cauliflower florets and the chopped leaves * ( see recipe notes ) and cook for another 6-7 min. Add the curry leaves slightly ripped.
When the potatoes and the cauliflower are soft, it’s ready. Grab a fork or a potato musher and partially mush some of the potatoes. You want some chunks too for texture so do not mush it completely. Mix
Preheat the oven at 190*C. Place a parchment paper in a tray. I used 2 pizza trays.
