"These stuffed savory pastries are a traditional Indian favorite. Lamb meat and spices are cooked together to create a mouthwatering filling for the easy to make dough. The recipe may seem complex, but it's actually fairly simple. Enjoy!" — Kimber

oil for deep frying

fresh ginger root, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons
fresh lemon juice
This recipe was delicious! Because I'm a vegetarian I replaced the lamb with a mixture of potatoes, peas, and carrots. I also used apple juice instead of lemon juice.
Perfect Blend of spices!Great Recipe, but the dough is not right. I had to add a lot more water than called for. Otherwise, finished product is fabolous.
This recipe is GREAT. Even though I don't typically choose to eat lamb, I liked this. I would also recommend trying it with other ground meats. Perfect blend of spices, and given that it's a somewhat lengthy process the end result is worth the time. Also - we had to add a lot of extra water to get the dough to be able to be kneading, probably more than twice as much water as is called for in the recipe. This is kid friendly when it comes to making the samosas - but not the frying parts of course.
I used ground turkey instead of the lamb and it was excellent!!
I was hoping to get the taste of the samosas that I had some years ago, but using this recipe didn't do it. Unless you use an awful lot of garam masala, the cost of this multi-spice isn't worth it.
I used another pastry I really liked and added potatoes and more spices, but this recipe is really a great idea on its own.
Good recipe. I was not sure whether the recipe called for 1/4c water or 1/4 + up to 1/4, but I did the dough in the food processor and used over 1/2 cup. I only had enough dough for 16 samosas because the circles were too small to cut in half, so I made them in the shape of pierogies. I threw some finely diced potatoes in th the meat which was a nive touch.
It does take a bit of work, and my stuffing wasn't quite as good as I hoped. But the dough recipe was perfect! I think I would use larger circles of dough next time I make this.
