Our kit serves 6

  1. If you’d like to bake the samosas, preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan /400°F/ gas mark 6. Otherwise you can fry them to achieve a crispier texture
  2. Place the potatoes in a pan of boiling water on a medium high heat for about 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are soft. Drain and mash the potatoes (the texture does not need to be completely smooth) and set aside
  3. In a separate pan, put the frozen peas in boiling water for 3 minutes on a medium heat, or according to packet instructions. Drain and mix with the potatoes
  4. Place your first Teaspoon Club spice packet in a frying pan and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, toasting them. Place the spices into a pestle and mortar and grind well
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan. Once ground, add the toasted spices and fry for 1 minute until the spices start to smell fragrant. Add the garlic, ginger, chilli, and onion and fry for 2 minutes. Then add your second Teaspoon Club spice packet and fry for 3-5 minutes until the onion begins to soften
  6. In a bowl, mix the onion and spices with the potatoes and peas and season well
  7. Unroll the filo pastry and cut into approximately 4 inch wide strips
  8. Place a large spoonful of filling onto the corner of a pastry strip
  9. Fold the pastry across to make a triangle, by taking the bottom right corner and folding it to the left side of the strip. Then fold up from the bottom. You can then fold in from the bottom left corner of the pastry to the right side and from the bottom again. Continue doing so making triangles as you go. Fold the final corner and brush with oil to secure. Place the samosas on a baking tray and brush all over with oil
  10. Bake for 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy, turning once halfway through. You can fry the samosas in oil in a pan if you prefer, or deep fat fry them
