1 tbsp oil
200g beef mince
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp Rajah Flavourful & Mild Curry Powder
1 large onion, finely chopped
¾ cup frozen peas, steamed
5 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
25 slices white bread
3 eggs, beaten
Oil, for frying
Red chilies (optional)
Add 1 tbsp of oil to a pan and bring it to medium heat. Cook the mince with the salt and the Rajah Flavourful & Mild Curry Powder until all of the water is gone. Remove from the heat.
Wrap the onions in a clean tea towel and squeeze to remove excess moisture. Once most of the water is gone, add it to the mince mixture along with the peas and coriander.
Remove the crusts from the bread creating a square shape. Place the crusts in a food processor or blender and pulse until you have coarse crumbs. Pour the crumbs out into a dry pan over medium-low heat and stir continuously until toasted.
Use a rolling pin to roll out each crustless bread slice. Wet fingers with water and brush over the edges of the bread slices.
Place a tablespoon of mince filling into the middle of each slice of bread and fold the bread diagonally over itself, corner to corner. Press down the edges to seal, making a samoosa-type triangle. *Chef’s Tip: try not to overfill the bread pockets.
Dip each triangle in the beaten egg, followed by the homemade breadcrumbs.
Heat the oil in a deep saucepan over high heat. Add the samoosas and fry until golden on both sides, about 3 minutes. Transfer to some paper towel to absorb excess oil.
On a large serving platter, arrange the mince samoosas into a wreath-like shape. Scatter fresh coriander and red chilies over the top, serve with chutney and ENJOY!
