These were very good but I had trouble finding the kind of bread you described in your recipe so I used tortilla bread. It wasn't easy to roll them up as I quickly learned, but somehow I managed. I used crushed garlic and crushed coriander instead of the pastes and that worked well with the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place potato, beans and onion in a container and bake in microwave (takes around 3-4 mins).
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  3. Place lentils on stove with cumin, coriander, chilli and garlic. Stir occasionally.
  4. When vegies are cooked, mix with lentils mixture on stove and cook until fragrant.
  5. Cut mountain bread into halves, so you have triangles.
  6. Place a small amount of mixture in the middle and fold into a samosa shape. (Start with the triangular shape on the bottom, then fold inwards from the sides.).
  7. Place on sprayed or baking paper lined tray. Cook in oven for eight minutes or until hard on the outside.
  8. Serve with a chilli dip and salad.
