In a saucepan, melt butter over a medium heat. Sauté spring onions and garlic until onions are cooked and translucent. Add mince or vegetables and cook until browned. Add spices and cook for a further 5 minutes. Leave to cool.

Take one strip of pastry and cover the rest with damp cloth. Fold the first corner of each samoosa at an angle, then fold again to form a triangle. Open the triangle and fill with mince.Mix flour with water to form a paste and spread on the pastry.
Wrap tightly. Fold the triangle at an angle, until only a small part of pastry is left.Heat oil in a pan and fry samoosas until golden-brown.

Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve with sweet and sour sauce or chilli sauce.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
