Vegan Baked Samosas – Indian Appetizer

Vegan Baked Samosas - Indian Appetizer - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

This! So easy and good. One down side of using vegan puff pastries is that you get a less filling per bite. On the up side you get a mouth full of fluffy, delicious baked dough. If you want baked samosas with a mouth full of potatoes use tortillas or wheat spring roll wrappers. This dough is good! I had little bit of potato filling left over. Be sure to cut the dough into proper squares. I did my first batch cutting the dough into rectangles and it worked out but square cuts are ideal. You can seal the edges of the dough with water but I didn’t do that.

350 grams of potatoes, 2 TB vegan butter, 1/2 cup frozen peas, .5 TB turmeric, .5 TB coriander powder, dash of garlic & onion powder, salt, box of puff pastry (pepperage farms is PETA approved)

  1. Chop, boil then drain potatoes. Mash with 2 TB vegan butter. Mix in  1/2 cup frozen peas, .5 TB turmeric, .5 TB coriander powder, dash of garlic & onion powder & salt.
  2. Set potato mixture aside to chill
  3. Roll out your thawed puff pastry dough and cut each of the sheets into 9 squares
  4. Put as much filling into the middle of dough while still being able to seal all of the edges. Using a fork push the dough to seal the sides. You can use water to help seal the edges but I didn’t.

      • Too true. I made some samosa style curry puffs yesterday (cheers for the reminder that they are delish) and they turned out amazing. I used some eggplant chutney a friend had given us and it added to the flavour and made them easier to make as I didn’t have to add any ‘curry’ spices. All in all a decadent and delicious outcome. Cheers for the reminder 🙂

        • That sounds sooo good.

          One of these days I’ll do something with eggplant. After buying a billion containers of trader joes eggplant hummus I’m now inspired to build a relationship with the plant. ….but I don’t know when.

          • I tried planting them in our fridge wicking beds but they must have got too much water to their roots and they died. They are another UBER expensive veggie here in temperate Tassie and as most Tasmanian’s are big meat eaters, they are also considered a weird item that no-one buys so hardly anywhere stocks them. I miss eggplant!

              • A lot of cooler climate produce is cheap here. We get 10kg bags of potatoes (that’s 20lb) for $15 at the moment but the price will fall in the next few months to $7 a bag. Onions, carrots etc. are very cheap here and meat used to be very cheap too as we are an island and have to be self sufficient in it but lately farmers have been turning to dairy cattle as there is a large dairy that will buy all of the local milk on the island (and ship it off to China…mutter…mutter…) so the price of beef has skyrocketed and the same goes with sheep as people are divesting into dairy cattle. It’s all about what the farmer can make his cash growing and nothing about variation to be honest and I have never been more glad to be vegan as we can still live very cheaply here despite our distance from the mainland and the extra costs we have to bear for our ‘extras’ (like cashews etc.) to be shipped here. I just tend not to buy the more expensive things (like nutritional yeast etc.) as we don’t really need them and they are incredibly overpriced by the time they hit our health food shops.

                • I don’t remember if you’ve already mention this but are you from the Island or did you move there?

                  • We moved here. I come from Western Australia (on the other side of the country) and Steve is originally from the U.K. We are one of those original ‘internet’ couples and have been married now for 17 years. Aside from finding awesome new vegan blogs, the internet has quite a few other uses 😉

                    • My father lived here with his partner and between them they owned 8 houses that they were renting out (as well as this place) We were working and renting in W.A. and he offered us one of his rentals rent free if we wanted to move here. When he died in 2010 he left us the house we were living in as well as his property out here on the river. We no longer have to pay rent and my children live in the house in the city. Can’t do better than that for an excuse to up sticks and move 🙂

                    • Oh my god! Your dad was a boss $$$$. And what a gift! Did getting free rent change your quality of life? Sorry to hear that he passed. I hope that wasn’t too difficult of a time for you.

                    • My dad and I didn’t really get along. Luckily he thought the sun shone out of Steve’s derierre so we still inherited ;). I think my dad felt guilty for being such a shite dad when we were kids so my brother and sister and I ended up benefiting from that guilt. Our quality of life improved a lot however Tasmania is a lot more expensive with food etc. and you can’t get the variety that you get on the mainland but as we don’t have to pay rent (only rates and my children pay the rates on the house in the city as they live there) we can live really cheaply and we grow quite a bit of food in the garden here, we just have to regularly wrangle the possums and wallabies to make sure it stays in our possession and not theirs. The blackbirds scoffed all of my strawberries this year and reminded me that the holes in my fence are too big and I am going to have to put netting over them. Nature always has a lesson to teach us.

                    • Just looked up “tasmania” on google image. DUDE! Does the area you live in resemble any of that? So beautiful!

                    • We live on the Tamar River and our front gate is just across the road from the river. It’s very pretty here. We live right at the very top of Tasmania. If you look at the map of Tasmania, you will see a river at the top of it. We live just around the corner from the sea. There are yachts moored in the river and little islands that you can kayak or boat over to have a picnic on (not that we have ever bothered) and a brilliant park that no-one goes to just over the Batman Bridge near us where we walk the dogs. The view is like the Riviera without the price tag. Housing prices are very cheap in Tasmania as there isn’t a lot of work here.
