Crispy samosas with fruity chia filling

I read amazing posts on different blogs about year 2017th. I will not write about it myself, because my 2017th was super awesome and I do not think that 2018th may come even close to it. But then I started to cook. Somehow for me new year means a totally new chapter. It always was like this. It does not matter that nothing has changed and that it was another night. It did not make me less tired and it did not give me 1h more in each day. But I feel like I have a lot more energy and I want to cook! I am a food blogger and it should not be a surprise, but the truth is, that for the last few months cooking was not the first thing on my mind when I was waking up.

When I woke up on 1st of January I said “good morning sunshine” (even though there was no visible signs of sun) and I started to think what to experiment with. There were many recipes, I tried many things (yup!). This Monday a miracle happened. I made something so extremely delicious, that I said “fuck yeah!”.

It is officially my recipe of the year and I don’t think that there may be anything more delicious going out of my kitchen this year. But, obviously, lets hope. These are samosas. Tomasz does not like them, because it’s too dry for him. But when he tried mine with my super awesome filling, he said “fuck yeah!”. So now you see that you have to try it. If two people who never agree when it comes to food say “fuck yeah” to the same recipe, it must be awesome.

The recipe for samosa dough comes from Playful Cooking

You will need for the dough:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • water

You will need for the filling:

  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 apple
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tsp agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp milk, may be almond milk or any plant milk

Let’s start with the filling. Grate an apple and banana, add the rest of the ingredients, mix and live in a fridge for an hour or so.

The dough now. In a bowl, place the flour, add salt, ghee and mix it well with your hand. Start pouring the water very slowly. Only enough to create a dough. Let it rest for about 30 minutes.

Now we will shape samosas. Get a small bowl of a dough (ping pong ball size) and roll a round shape out of it (like on a picture). Cut the rolled dough in half.

Now we’ll fold the dough to create a cone. Glue it well with fingers.

Fill the cone with the filling (about 1 tbsp). Fold the edges so it glues well.

In a deep pan, heat an oil (at least 1cm) and bring it to a low heat. Place samosas in it and let it fry, so they start to be golden on both sides. Place on a paper towel to get rid of an additional oil.

Serve with a natural yoghurt.

Enjoy, Marta
