These small but flavorful little triangles are delicious and will definitely impress!


  • filo pastry sheets
  • 1 cup of green peas
  • 1 large onion
  • 2-3 potatoes
  • dash of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of powdered ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala


  1. Peel the potatoes, cut them in cubes & boil for 15 minutes until tender. Put aside.
  2.  Cut the onions in small cubes.
  3. Mix the tumeric, ginger, garam masala, salt & pepper in a bowl.
  4. Then put onions, peas, potatoes, 2 teaspoons of your spice mixture in a pan with butter.
  5. Cook over medium heat until your onions are golden.
  6. Cut filo pastry circle sheet in half to have a semi-circle. Then fold in the rounded part so it looks like rectangle.
  7.  Put a spoonful of filling on the filo. Fold over into a triangle shape. Keep repeating this until the end of the sheet. Then slowly tuck the end into the pocket.
  8. Repeat #7 with all your samosas until you run out of the mixture.
  9. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the samosas until crisp and golden.
  10. Serve!

Tip: Different fillings can be swapped! For carnivores, ground beef and spinach are another alternative. However, the same spices must be preserved.
