August 2012 - Cornmeal

24. 7. 2012

For this month's challenge, I tried samosas - Indian pockets of dough filled with vegetables.

 

Polenta samosas

from Khana Khazana

 

100 grams polenta flour

100 grams all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

water as needed

vegetable filling (cooked potatoes, peas, carrots, corn, onion, all cut into small pieces and seasoned with shawarma spice mix)

First, I prepared the two flours and oil.

I mixed it together by hand, adding small amount of water gradually to create a very tough dough, which I covered with cling film.

I let the dough stand for a couple of hours, then I rolled it into a very thin sheet (not quite as thin as I would have liked to) and cut out circles. I decided to try to roll the circles even thinner, almost translucent.

Then, I put about a teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle and folded the dough over the filling. I pinched the dough together.

I baked the samosas until they were golden-brown. (I prefer baking to frying with most recipes - it is less messy and less dangerous.)

And I had them for a late night snack :-) (See my foot in the background?)
