    From Carnation. Times are approximate. See tips at the end of the directions. These potato cakes are a great side dish. They have the flavour of a samosa without the work. 2 % evaporated milk can be used.

      What an interesting dish. I have never tried Samosa cakes before and was pleasantly surprised. I was thinking of just making them the mashed potato way but at the last minute decided to make them as posted. We loved the heat in these little cakes. Served with Chicken Scaloppine. Thanks for posting. :)

      Fantastic! I make homemade samosas often, this recipe is so much easier than folding the filling into the dough with all the flavor. I did however add fresh chopped cilantro (about a 1/4 cup). [made and reviewed for NZ/AUS recipe swap #29, June 2009]

      Made for Photo Tag We LOVE samosas and the flavour in this dish is yummy!I love the addition of peas...makes it more authentic. I used panko bread crumbs and it made the samosa cakes so crispy and lovely. Thanks!
