Super Easy Samosas

I made these for dinner last night and we love them! My husband claims he doesn't like curry but really likes these. He's strange...but lovable!

Easy Cresent Samosas

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups cooked diced potatoes
1 cup cooked diced carrot
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
5 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp dried cilantro
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp salt
1 dash red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp water
2 (8 ounce) packages crescent rolls (I used Pilsbury)

  1. Saute onion and garlic in oil for 5 minutes until onion is soft.
  2. Add all other ingredients except crescent rolls.
  3. Stir gently over medium heat for several minutes until well blended.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Heat oven to 375 degrees
  6. Open cans of crescent rolls and unroll the dough.
  7. Separate into 4 rectangles and pinch the triangular perforations to seal
  8. Cut each rectangle in half to make squares (you'll have 8 squares per can of crescents rolls)
  9. You may have to coax the dough gently with your hands to make it square and to close up the perforations.
  10. Spoon a heaping spoonful of filling in the center of each square and fold over to make a triangle. (I made rectangles)
  11. Pinch the edges to seal.
  12. Bake on a greased cookie sheets for 12-15 minutes until golden.
  13. Cool slightly on rack.
  14. Serve warm with honey dipping sauce (recipe below)
  15. Makes 16 samosas

Honey Dipping Sauce

1/3 cup honey
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp water
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pinch red pepper flakes

Mix sauce well in a small bowl. Enjoy!
