Mmm… Today I made one of the Indian classics. A vegetarian Samosa with a potato and green pea filling. Actually, all samosas are vegetarian because, although you can put anything in a samosa, about thirty percent of India is vegetarian. And because I’m also a vegetarian, I had to give this recipe a try. Normally you fry the samosas, but I just made them in the oven.
Just as tasty but much healthier. I went here for a sweet chili dip, although a yogurt dip or (homemade) chutney is even better. What would you like to serve with it? Let me know!
