Hi peeps. I'm still here, I haven't melted away! Though it might be a different story this time next week as the temperature is meant to be rising even more! We've been eating lots of really good Salads and cooking indoors as little as possible which explains my lack of bloggage as the food generally hasn't been very exciting or very pretty to the eye. We've been having lots of BBQ's - see
BBQ'd Corn, Patatas Bravas, Salad and Veggie Kabobs in an awesome Marinade of Peanut Butter, Olive Oil, Soy Sauce and Wholegrain Mustard - seriously good.
We were invited to a friends on Tuesday for a BBQ and I came up with the brainwave of making Samosas. I had a huge bowl of Curry leftover which helped me in my decision to make these as all I had to do was make the dough and VOILA! I had never made Samosas before so a bit of googling was necessary to give me an extra boost of confidence and boy - did I get that or what. Check out this awesome lady - Manjula. Her video is amazing.
There's a part two as well which skips the filling and gets onto the making and frying and the bit I was interested in mainly, seeing as I already had my filling made. But I am SO going to make these again and I'll use Manjula's filling next time. The recipe I used for the dough is as thus 225 grams plain Flour 2 teaspoons Salt 2 table spoons Canola Oil 80 ml warm Water This made enough for 26 Samosas - plenty for everyone!
