    Mercy's Note:

    These can also be baked at 400F until golden, instead of dealing with all the mess from frying. I found this recipe on another site. I have not tried it out yet, but I look forward to trying it when I get the time! Cooking time includes chill time.

      Very tasty Samosa recipe. I used a left over potato, mashed chickpeas and cut the recipe back to 6 Samosas. Delish - great spice mixture. Baked in the oven - 400 degrees for 10 minutes each side. I painted the wonton wrapped samosas with olive oil, set them on a bake sheet, when done served them with Denzel's Peaches and Scream sauce - Enjoyed by both of us

      I halved the recipe and made for my daughter's boyfriend, who lived in Africa as a child and remembered fondly eating samosas. I wanted to make an African meal for him and chose to make these! I did add green bell pepper and carrots to the mix. I left some without the meat for me. Thank you! He and all of us really enjoyed them!

      Very tasty, Certainly a make again! Meat, potato & veggie--it's a meal! Lends itself to any ground meat or meat substitute. Very staight-forward preparation, the biggest challenge is getting the filled wrappers into a uniform eye pleasing shape. I did sustitute ground turkey (didn't have a chilli pepper), opted for peas, and otherwise stuck to the recipe. The first test batch was less than impressive, the wonton wrappers were a dry/crisp and dull, so after asking-used a very light brush of oil and a pinch of salt made them soft and inviting(can also use cooking oil spray). I found the spice level/combination very agreeable but felt it was repetitious(maybe because of the turkey being less powerful than beef) and in need something. I noticed other people use rasins or sultanas so I chopped some for a second test batch--yummy! They added a needed contrast for my liking and the taste was complete. I wanted to give 5 stars but I've never had Samosas before so I can't say how traditional these taste. As far as quantity,I made 12-15 filled wonton wraps and filled a small burrito wrap for neighbor to munch on and still had about 3/4 of the mixture remaining (in the fridge for tommorow) so I'd say #60 individual peices easily. This is a great filling to make ahead or freeze for time saving convenience. Thumbs up!
