Traditional Indian cuisine is very popular today - thank goodness it can also be made a lot easier today as well! Use any kind of ground meat that you like (since beef is not really traditional, but most popular in Western countries). You can even make these a day ahead and reheat them on a cookie sheet in a 300-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until hot.
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (12 ounce) package wonton skins (about 26-30 pieces)
- 1 egg, beaten
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Soak the raisins in some warm water for 10 minutes, then drain.
- Meanwhile, in a medium-sized skillet, saute the beef and onion until browned. Drain off any fat, then add the drained raisins, curry, cumin, garlic, salt, and pepper; mix well.
- Moisten the edges of each wonton skin with the beaten egg, then spoon 1 teaspoon of the beef mixture into the center of each skin. Fold each skin in half to form a triangle and seal the edges.
- Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick vegetable cooking spray, then place the samosas onto the cookie sheet, spraying each one to coat evenly. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the bottoms are golden and crisp.
These samosas were a hit -- loved the combination of the raisins and curry in these delicious appetizers. I baked half of the recipe and plan to freeze the remaining meat mixture for a future date. I especially loved how they baked up so crispy. You do need to keep an eye on them as the edges can get a little too brown. Will definitely make them again.
