  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green chili peppers, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon ground fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups frozen cubed potatoes (hash brown style works well)
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/3 cup water


2 sheets prepared pie crust circles


  • Spray large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and brown ground beef with onions over medium heat approximately 5 minutes, until beef begins to brown.
  • Add in chopped garlic and chili peppers and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or until beef is completely browned and onions are translucent and tender.
  • Add in remaining spices and stir to combine.
  • Stir in potatoes and green peas, carefully stirring to combine.
  • Add in water, cover, and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat and chill in the refrigerator for one hour until cool.
  • Bring the prepared pie crust to room temperature according to package directions.
  • Cut each circle into eighths pieces, just as you would slice a pie or cake.
  • Place 1 Tablespoon of beef filling in the middle of each pastry slice, and then gather the corners at the top to make somewhat of a pyramid shape, sealing the sides with moistened fingers. (You can freeze the pastries for future use)
  • Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan over high heat. Fry samosas in small batches until golden brown, approximately 3 minutes.
  • Drain and keep warm.
