Egg samosa. Featuring a delectable filling made with eggs and aromatic spices, this no-fuss crispy samosa triangles make an ideal quick snack fix. It’s a great way to make your tea time extra fancy.
“Cooking from the pantry” is the norm these days. As you all know, the grocery store shelves are almost empty (temporarily), and everyday cooking has turned into a mystery box challenge. Well, if you’re planning to cook on an everyday basis and limit your outings, you must also learn the trick to whip up a great meal with ingredients that you have on hand. And when availability guides our everyday meals, it’s time to think outside the box. At the same time, it’s also important to keep things exciting by incorporating new ideas and ingredients into your personal cooking style.
Moving onto today’s recipe, this egg samosa is all about combining a few humble ingredients to create an amazing snack for your family. Eggs cooked in delectable masala is covered in crispy filo pastry to make the ultimate snack. Well, if you don’t have filo pastry, you can obviously make this with puff pastry, spring roll pastry, or even pastry made from scratch.
The key ingredient is, obviously, eggs. Hardboiled eggs are peeled and then chopped very finely so they’ll get coated in beautifully delicious masala. To make the masala, first, splutter some cumin seeds and then sauté onions until soft. Fry up some minced garlic and ginger, followed by sauteeing the spices like ground turmeric, ground coriander and red chili powder. Add garam masala, green peas and coriander leaves. Season with a little salt before adding in chopped eggs. Now let this mixture cool down completely.
Choose your favorite pastry
Well, I opted for filo pastry in this egg samosa recipe. However, you can easily substitute it with puff pastry (like in this recipe) or spring roll pastry (like in this recipe). You can even make the pastry from scratch (like in this recipe). Now all you need to do is fill the pastry sheets with the egg mixture and roll into triangles. Finally, bake them into golden perfection.
Deliciously crispy egg samosa triangles to create the perfect accompaniment for your afternoon tea.
