I had this recipe in the pipe for ages!!
It was a mistake I had to fix, no samosa recipe on the blog… Ooh la la…
So I won’t waste more time now, let’s make beef and coriander samosas!
If I want to be precise, it’s not only beef and coriander samosas…
For a moist texture, full of flavors, super tasty, you will need a few more ingredients…
Before letting you know more, I went to check Wikipedia to get to know about samosas.
A samosa is a fried or baked dish with a savoury filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas, or lentils. It may take different forms, including triangular, cone, or half-moon shapes, depending on the region. The Indian style, often accompanied by a chutney, is probably the most widely-known of a broad family of recipes from Africa to China, which have origins in medieval times or earlier.
Samosas are a popular entrée, appetizer, or snack in the local cuisines of the Indian subcontinent, Western Asia, Southeast Asia, the Mediterranean, the Horn of Africa, North Africa, and Southern Africa. Due to cultural diffusion and emigration from these areas, samosas in today’s world are also prepared in other regions.
Be ready to put spices, lots of spices as I like it, honey or mapple syrup to get the sweet and delicate taste, garlic, fresh mint…
You see where I’m going?! It’s going to be delicious!!
You can have it as a part of your buffet, as an appetizer or as a starter!
You can even prepare your beef and coriander samosas in advance and just keep the final cooking to be done before serving. So convenient, right?…
A sharp knife to chop the onion in very small pieces
And a 26-28 cm diameter frying pan.
Honestly this recipe is super easy! You can even start a samosa folding workshop with your kids . They are going to love it!
I won’t say more!
