Onion Pepper Samosa ~ Baked
For the first time I bought pastry sheets, I got mini one's as trial version. I was thinking what to do with them and got the idea of making samosa, I used onion to send the entry for Priya's event Healing Foods-Onion, a event started by Siri.
Since I had bell pepper I decide used that too and added whatever I thought will make the samosa good ;). I had difficultly with shaping samosa in the beginning but I got the hang of it after a while, so if you are trying to first time don't worry just try, perhaps next time I will take step wise pics for better understanding :-).
The samosa tasted great, and am sure trying again.
Serving ~ 12 pieces
Pastry sheets - 12 (I used mini)
Onion - 1 medium size
Bell Pepper - 1/2 [ I used yellow color]
Kasuri Methi - 1 tsp
Chili flakes - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp [optional]
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
1. In a pan heat oil, add chopped onion and fry for a min.
2. Add chopped bell pepper and saute until onion turns high brown.
3. Add kasuri methi, chili flakes, cumin, turmeric powder and salt, cook for 2 mins and keep aside.
4. Thaw the pastry sheets as packet instructions. Mine was to thaw for 40mins.
5. Take one sheet and fill 1tsp of onion pepper masala and give any shape as desire, follow the same for rest. I tried for samosa and spring roll shapes and after a while figure it out how to roll them ;)...
6. Preheat the oven in 200C and bake samosa for 10mins in 200C or until golden brown. Turn over all the samosa pieces to other side and bake for another 10mins in 200C, keep a eye on the oven as all the oven are different.
Let it cool for a while and enjoy. It doesn't required any sauce or chutney. We just enjoyed it as it is, the kasuri methi gives a wonderful taste.
I tried few mini rolls, used the pastry sheets, fill 1/4 tsp of tutty fruity and bake both sides for 10mins each, it was yummy too. But the samosa were the winners :)
Enjoy your day...
