First time I've made pastry or in fact samosas and they went down a treat. The pastry was so gorgeous that it inspired my relatives to also make their own instead of buying the ready rolled pastry 10 out of 10 I love them :)

These are delicious! Used sweet potato in the filling instead of potato because that's what we had. the pastry is really hard to roll out thin, but if you persevere you are rewarded with super crispy perfect samosas.

These are amazing samosas. I never thought I would be able to create such deliciously authentic tasting food at home. The pastry is superb, and the vegetable filling is lovely. I would make every day if I had the time.

I'd love to make these for New Year's Eve, since I'm pretty limited in diet and this recipe ticks all the boxes (no dairy, no tomatoes, no citrus), but we don't have a deep fryer. Could I bake these in the oven?
