Samosas are a firm favourite of mine !
These crispy crunchy fried snacks can be filled with any (dry-ish) filling, my personal preference is this spicy cooked mince meat.
|HEALTHY MINCED MEAT SAMOSAS|
For the Meat Filling
1/2 kg Minced meat
2 green chilies - finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic - chopped
1 large lemon
2 medium onions - chopped
Handfuls of Cashews - roughly broken into small pieces
Bread crumbs (2 slices)
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
1.5 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Chili powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
Salt to taste
1 cup wholewheat flour
water to knead the dough
salt to taste
Cook the minced meat in a double boiler pressure cooker and keep aside.

|COOKED MINCED MEAT|
Prep all the ingredients for the Meat filling.
Saute the onions, chilies and garlic in a deep pan till they are browned.
Add the cooked mince to this and set the heat to medium.
Add the spices and the cashews. Mix well.
Next, squeeze the juice of 1 large lemon to this.
Depending on the consistency of the miced meat, add the breadcrumbs. Mix well.
Transfer to a bowl and keep aside.
Mix the flour and salt, then knead with the water into a somewhat hard/firm dough. I don't put oil in this dough....try and knead it as much as possible, but make sure it's a harder dough than the usual soft/sticky dough which you would do for chapatis/rotis.
Roll each ball out thin. Fill and fold the Samosas with the minced meat filling.
Heat oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Slide the samosas gently into the oil and fry on each side until lightly golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
Drain on paper towel-lined plate and serve.
