For Flaky Samosas

  • 1 peeled and chopped russet potato
  • 3 tablespoon of butter
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon of jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoon of ginger, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon of turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon of cayenne
  • Salt
  • 1/3 cup of frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 box of puff pastry
  • 1 beaten egg


  1. Defrost the puff pastry at room temperature for 30 minutes and preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Take a saucepan, put water and potato in it. Cook till the potato is tender. Drain the water and use a fork to mash it.
  2. Take the saucepan and add butter. Melt it on medium heat. Now, add onion till it is translucent. Add the ginger and jalapeno and stir it for a minute. Put in the spices along with salt to taste. Add the mashed potato, cilantro, and frozen peas.
  3. Use parchment paper to line the baking sheets. Take the pastry dough and roll them up in squares of 13×13 inches on a floured surface. Make a circle template using a cutter. Pick them with the fork and cut the circles in half. Put a spoonful of the filling on it. Brush egg around the edges and seal them. Brush them with egg wash again. Bake them for 20 minutes.


  • If you want, you can avoid brushing eggs and use oil instead.
