    chef ashish damle's Note:

    Samosa is not a new word for a average American or Canadian like Jamaican beef patties. It is an Indian appetizer known to all. This is a great post Christmas or Thanksgiving recipe Good if you are hosting a New Year's party and want to impress guests with some party snacks. I love it as it is a good combination of spicy and sweet and takes minimum kitchen skills to make.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric

    For samosas

    for stuffing

    For chutney


    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients from the dough and mix well.
    2. 2
      Add in the water slowly to make a stiff dough.
    3. 3
      Do not over knead the dough as you want to make the final product crispy and flaky.
    4. 4
      Cover the bowl with a plastic foil and allow to rest.
    5. 5
      For the stuffing heat oil in a pan and sauté onion and ginger.
    6. 6
      Add the curry powder and the cayenne pepper (adjust amount according to your taste).
    7. 7
      Then fold in the turkey meat and chopped cilantro.
    8. 8
      Check for seasoning.
    9. 9
      Allow to cool.
    10. 10
      Roll out the dough into oblong shapes and cut into half width wise.
    11. 11
      Now place the flat side of the dough towards the top of your palm and make a cone.
    12. 12
      Fill with stuffing and seal the ends.
    13. 13
      This takes a little bit of practice but can be learned quickly.
    14. 14
      You can also roll the dough thin and cut into 1 1/2 inch strips, put stuffing at one end of the strip and make a triangle. Works same way.
    15. 15
      Fry until crisp golden in color and serve hot.
    16. 16
      Heat oil and sauté the bay leaf, peppercorn, peppers and onions briefly.
    17. 17
      Add sugar and water to make a simple syrup.
    18. 18
      Drop in the cinnamon stick and vinegar allow to boil.
    19. 19
      Add in the cranberry jelly to thicken (this sauce is good if spiced up with some sambal oleck).
    20. 20
      Could be served cold or warm--bon appetit!

      I was browsing recipezaar for some recipes with an indian flavor and came across this. All the ingredients I had on hand. But I was also intrigued by the fact that this chef was not afraid to be practical and was willing to use turkey and cranberry sauce that was left from a holiday meal. The end result was Excellent! The turkey worked very well with these spices and the cranberry and pepper chutney was a very nice balance of sweet and spicy. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. My 19 year old daughter and 13 year old son agreed. This is definetly one for our recipe binder. We WILL be making this again. Thank you chef ashish for sharing this recipe.
