Turkey Samosa only 20p EACH !

Turkey samosa

We had several children over for tea last night, and I thought I would shy away from the usual pizza and chips, I had picked up some reduced Turkey mince and I had a bit of a brain wave. I always try and show my children different foods and tastes, and some times they like it and sometimes I get a big “JOG ON !” but it is always worth a try.

This worked out super frugal at around 20p a samosa, and I made my own pastry which was simple, cheap as chips and much tastier than I expected. These can also accommodate a whole batch of fillings, so use up veg, meat or even cheese with these.

Turkey samosa


You will need….

250g Turkey mince

2 carrots grated

1 onion chopped finely

2 tbsp curry powder

2 tsp salt

4 cups of plain flour

50g butter

1 tbsp coconut oil

Oil for frying


Turkey samosa


Heat some coconut oil in a large pan and add the onion , fry until they are clear, add the mince and the carrots and fry until the mince is no longer pink.

Add the 1 tsp of salt and the curry powder and mix well. Feel free to add potatoes, sweetcorn etc to the mix.

Put the flour, salt and softened butter into a large mixing bowl and slowly add water, your aim is to make the dough form a ball that will be stretchy and not too sticky. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes, I always imagine someone that has hacked me off, and before I know it, I have a perfect dough ball.

Turn it out onto a floured surface and pull the dough into 8 pieces (if you want big samosa leave the balls bigger, if you want small ones, make smaller balls !)

Roll out the balls into a circular shape and  cut down the middle of each circle. Wet the edges of the pastry and roll up into a cone, push some of the mince ingredients into the cone, but try not to overfill it. Seal the edges and get ready to deep frying.

Deep fry them until they are a light brown colour and place them on kitchen towel to absorb the access oil. Wait for several minutes before serving, We also made a batch of feta cheese samosa’s as we had a vegetarian in the group and they were equally yummy.

    I just read an article in the Daily Mail with suggestions from you about using small amounts of leftovers. You advocate putting plastic in the microwave. This is a very bad practice as it may release carcinogenic chemicals into the food. This is not an urban myth. While you may be careful not to overheat the plastic many of your followers won’t. Here is an article from a trusted source that may enlighten you. http://www.cancer.ca/en/prevention-and-screening/be-aware/cancer-myths-and-controversies/microwaves-and-plastic-containers/?region=on

      Please don’t take this as a criticism of your blog. It’s lovely. But I had no other way of contacting you with respect to this issue. I don’t expect you to publish my comment.
