What's for Dinner? My Version of Samosas

Roughly based on this recipe --> but I coated mine in egg/milk, a seasoned spelt crumb and fried them. The dough was made out of a combination of spelt flour and bread flour. I rolled and cut the dough a 1/16th inch circle to fill and fold over into half moons. Sauteed potato, fresh cabbage, homemade sauerkraut, mushroom, onion and shredded carrot filled the crispy shells. A side of applesauce accompanied the dish for dipping. Apple and cabbage are a natural combination and the smooth sweetness perfectly contrasted the salty crisp of the Samosas.


  1. We, Canadian Tamils, call it "pattis". :)

    Normally, potato, fish, chicken curries are stuffed and deep fried.
    It is a staple snack at all GTA Tamil restaurants.
    You can buy 5 for a $1 :)

    There is one restaurant bakes the pattis and sells as oil free healthy snack.

    It is an evening spicy snack accompanied with hot tea!

  2. That's Awesome!
    5 for a $1 is a bargain!!
    Thanks for sharing :)
    I would love to try the authentic type.

  3. Whenever you pass Scarborough drop by Babu Catering on Sheppard/Markham. They got some authentic curry and other spicy Tamil food.

  4. Thanks so much for the tip!
    I definitely will if I get the chance :)
