Vegan diwali recipes samosas
Vegan samosas

A Diwali celebration without samosas is like a sky without stars—simply unimaginable! These crispy, triangle-shaped delights are stuffed with a spicy potato and pea filling, making them the perfect vegan snack to share. Freshly made and irresistibly tasty, they're a labor of love that's worth every minute in the kitchen.


Serves: 6 (12 samosas)


Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes


Ingredients:

For the Samosas:

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 2 tbsp vegetable oil

- Water, as needed, to knead the dough

- Salt to taste

- 2 large potatoes, boiled and mashed

- 1 cup green peas, boiled

- 1 tsp cumin seeds

- 1 tsp fennel seeds

- 1 medium onion, finely chopped

- 1 tsp red chilli powder

- 2 tbsp oil for the masala, plus more for frying

- Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped


For the Red Chilli Tamarind Chutney:

- 3 dry red chillies

- 1 large red onion, finely chopped

- 1 tbsp jaggery or brown sugar

- Salt to taste


Method:

1. For the dough, in a bowl mix together flour, salt and 2 tbsp vegetable oil. Keep mixing until it starts looking a bit like breadcrumbs. Slowly add in water and knead to form a firm, smooth dough. Once done, cover it up and let it chill for about 30 minutes.

2. Now, for the filling, heat up 2 tbsp oil in a pan. Add in the cumin and fennel seeds, giving them a few seconds to dance around and sizzle.

3. Next, toss in the finely chopped onion. Sauté until they turn translucent and emit a sweet aroma.

4. Time to add the mashed potatoes and green peas. Season this mix with garam masala, amchur, red chilli powder, and salt. Stir well ensuring every bit gets some spice love. Once it’s all nicely mingled, throw in the coriander leaves, give it one last mix and take it off the heat to cool.

5. With the dough ready and rested, split it into six equal parts. Roll each into about a 6-inch circle and slice it in half.

6. Each half is now ready to be your samosa wrap. Shape it into a cone, stuff it with the potato-onion filling and seal the open edge by pinching it together.

7. In a large pan, heat up some oil over a medium flame. Once it's got that nice heat going, slide in the samosas. Fry until they’re a lovely shade of golden brown, making sure to turn them now and then. Once crispy and golden, take them out and let them drain on a paper towel.

8. For that drool-worthy chutney, soak the tamarind and red chillies in a bit of warm water for around 20 minutes. Once they’re nice and soft, blend them with the chopped red onion, jaggery, and a pinch of salt. Keep going until you’ve got a smooth chutney that promises a whirlwind of flavours.


Additional Recommendations:

If you're looking to add a cool element, consider serving these hot samosas with a side of vegan mint-coriander chutney or a dollop of vegan yoghurt. And hey, they're best enjoyed fresh out of the pan!
