      • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
      • 1 Teaspoon Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper
      • 2 Medium Onions (Diced)
      • 1 Teaspoon Ground Coriander
      • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
      • 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric
      • 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
      • 1 Teaspoon Garam Masla Powder
      • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic & Chili Paste
      • 4 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
      • 1 Large Tomato (Diced)
      • 2 Teaspoons Fresh Ginger (Minced)
      • 1 Pound Ground Beef
      • 1/2 Pound Frozen Peas
      • 4 Large Russet Potatoes (Peeled & Diced)
      • 1 Medium Lemon (Juiced)
      • 24 Pastry Wrappers (Associated Recipe)
      • 1 Large Egg
      • 2 Tablespoons Water
      • 5 Cups Vegetable Oil
      • 1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro (Chopped)


  1. In a large cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and saute onions until translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and continue to saute over low heat until the ground beef is completely browned and the potatoes are fork tender.
  2. In a large bowl, transfer meat mixture and use a potato masher to mash mixture coarsely. Allow mixture to cool. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water together until foamy and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in another deep cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and heat to 350 degrees.
  4. Transfer samosa dough to a lightly floured surface. With a 3-inch- diameter biscuit cutter or drinking glass, cut out circles and arrange on a sheet pan. Keep them covered with a slightly damp kitchen towel while filling and frying them.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle. Brush edges with egg wash and bring them up to form a triangle. Press gently to seal.
  6. Transfer samosas one small batch at a time into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Place fried samosas on a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Repeat until all samosas are fried. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve warm.
