Original recipe makes 8 samosas Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute potato and onion in hot oil until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Break beef into small pieces and add to the skillet; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Season beef mixture with 2 1/2 tablespoons curry powder, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper.
  4. Pour chicken stock over the beef mixture; add peas and stir. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook until the stock is nearly evaporated and the potatoes are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Moisten edges of each pie crust triangle with wet fingers. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the beef mixture into the middle of each dough piece. Fold dough over the filling into a triangle; crimp edges together with a fork to seal beef inside the triangle. Arrange samosas onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Beat egg with turmeric and 1/4 teaspoon curry powder in a bowl; brush over the samosas.
  7. Bake samosas in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

This was a very good samosa filling recipe. I will say that I wanted a "pie" recipe because I already had a pie crust to fill, so I didn't make the individual samosas, but I followed the recipe for the filling almost to the letter (didn't have peas, so used a can of corn, and used a full pound of ground beef). The flavor was amazing! Not too spicy, just the right amount of sweetness. I used a frozen pie crust, thawed out, then topped it with a refrigerated pie crust, brushed with the egg wash indicated here. I got rave reviews from my boyfriend - a staunch traditional meat pie guy - and my two adult children, one of which is a big fan of curry and samosas, in particular. I will make this again, next time trying with individual crusts. It was easy, you must try this, even if you think you don't like this kind of food.
