Looking for a delicious and exotic recipe to try at your next party? Look no further than Samosa Pie. This healthy and delicious dish is sure to be a hit with your guests.
Potato Samosas are one of my favorite things at an Indian restaurant. I love the contrast of crunchy and soft, plus I don’t mind if it gets some of my curry on it! I love to sop up all that extra curry sauce with a samosa. I wanted to cook up a meal of samosas, so I decided on a Samosa pie. It is a perfect one dish meal or great in a spread with other Indian dishes. It is also a great Vegetarian easy recipe.
Delicious Rating: The flavors are wonderful in this Samosa Pie. You can really choose to mix and match what vegetables you like. I did a combination of potatoes, green beans, peas, and carrots. Next time I will lessen the amount of green beans, it got to be a bit much after the first slice. I will also make a great curry or vindaloo sauce to go with it. Let me know how you enjoy this recipe!
