I had some leftover pie-crust and I didn't want to put it in the freezer again as I tend to forget about little quantities of left overs. Since the pie was sweet, I wanted to make something savory. So I thought of making a samosa hand pie. And it turned out pretty good. I find this a good substitute for the traditional fried samosas - something I can prepare ahead and serve the guests hot as I can make it all at one go, unlike the tedium of frying samosas one by one.
Potatoes,boiled ,chopped-2 cups
Green peas,cooked-1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Amchoor powder(or can substitute with lemon juice)-1 tsp
Garam masala-1/4 tsp
Anardana(dry pomegranate seeds)-1/2 tsp
Heat oil,add green chillies after about half a minute add potatoes and peas.Mix well and add all the spices and cilantro leaves.Mix well and remove from heat.
Roll out the pie-crust on parchment and cut whatever shapes you want. Put a tablespoon of filling over this and cover with another piece of pie-crust similarly cut. Crimp the sides. Make a small X shaped cut for the steam to escape. Transfer your samosas onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Cook them for about 20 minutes at 350 degree F. Keep an eye on them and remove them when they start to become generally light brown and darker brown in spots.
