Indian Samosa Wraps

I created these beautiful and delicious Samosa Wraps tonight.  I had purchased Amy's Indian Samosa Wraps from the frozen section at Whole Foods and knew I could create these in my own kitchen.  I started with garlic, onion, potatoes and carrots.  After cooking for about 10 minutes, I added vegetable broth, peas, sun dried tomato, fresh jalapeno, salt, curry powder, ground ginger, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper and lemon juice.  THE FLAVOR WAS SO DELICIOUS and only 4 grams of fat. Amy's Samosa Wraps were half the size of mine with more than double the fat.  I made my own whole wheat tortillas which were a blend between a tortilla and naan bread.  After making the tortillas, keep them wrapped so they stay soft until ready to use. 
Indian Samosa Wraps
Serves 4

2 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 Tbsp.extra-virgin olive oil
3 medium potatoes (diced)
1/2 large onion (diced)
2 carrots (diced)
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 cup salt-free vegetable broth
1 cup frozen peas
1 sun-dried tomato (diced finely)
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. curry powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
homemade tortillas/naan bread

1.)  In a large skillet add 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil.  Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds stirring constantly.  Add potatoes, onion and carrots and cook for 10 minutes, stirring as needed.

2.)  Add 1 cup vegetable broth, sun-dried tomato, jalapeno, peas, salt, seasonings and lemon juice. 

3.)  Cover and let simmer until all liquid has been absorbed. Use a potato masher to mash your potato mixture somewhat.  Leave some chunks.

4.)  Divide mixture into 4 parts and put each part on each of the 4 tortillas.  Roll by bringing in the sides of the tortilla and rolling.  Warm if needed before serving. Slice in half and serve with spinach salad and orange slices. 

5.)  ENJOY!!



Wheat Tortillas
Makes 4

2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp. aluminum free baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup Coconut Milk (So Delicious 50 Calorie unsweetened)

1.) Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Work in Earth Balance Butter with a hand pastry blender.

2.)  Slowly add warm coconut milk.  Stir until a loose, sticky ball is formed.

3.)  Knead for two minutes on a floured surface.  Dough should be firm and soft.  Place dough in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth for 30 minutes. This stage is very important.

4.)  After the dough has rested, divide into 4 equal parts.  Make each section into a ball and roll out to about a 10" - 12" circle.

5.)  Heat griddle to high.  Add first tortilla. Flip after a minute. Push tortilla down with spatula to produce air pockets.  Keep moving spatula around the tortilla to produce more air pockets.  Flip tortilla and continue with process until tortilla is lightly browned in a few areas of tortilla.  If desired you can brush tortilla lightly with Earth Balance Butter on one side.

6.)  Store tortillas under damp cloth until ready for use.

  10. This looks really good. I love Indian food. Have you tried using other milks instead of coconut milk in the tortillas? Think soy would work?

  11. Alex, any of the milks will work great:) These tortillas are so easy to make-you will love them. Please let me know if you give them a try and how they turn out.

  15. What a great idea! I love samosas but rarely make them because I don't want to cut and fry the outer crust. This sounds like an easy and delicious way to get that samosa-goodness into my mouth. I look forward to trying it for myself!
