How to make it

  • In large frying pan cook beef until brown. Add onion, garlic, curry, salt, ginger, sugar and cayenne; cook until onion is limp. Stir in peas and cook 1 min. Drain fat. Let cool.
  • In corner of wonton skin, mound 1 T filling. Moisten edges of wonton skin, bring opposite corner over filling and press together forming triangle. Continue until all are filled. (At this point you may place filled samosas on a tray, wrap tightly with plastic and refrigerate for as long as 8 hours or may be frozen for up to a month.)
  • Heat about 2 inches of oil in a deep pan to 360 degrees. Add 4 or 5 samosas, fry 1 - 2 minutes or till golden brown, turning to cook evenly. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 200 degree oven till all are cooked. Serve warm (I like them cold as well)
  • Serve with yogurt sauce.
  • Yogurt Sauce:
  • Stir together 2 c plain yogurt, 1/4 c finely chopped chutney and 1 t dry mint flakes till blended.

    I don't think my comment showed up, so I'm going to repost.
    I made these tonight for dinner and DH walked in the door with a huge smile on his face when he saw them on the counter, piled high in their golden glory. He took one bite and told me that they taste like Mama's Sambusak (maybe what Palestinians call it). I made just a few adjustments according to what I had on hand. I got a huge bag of potatoes on sale, so I peeled 3 small ones and boiled them in salt water for 18 minutes, cubing them when they cooled down. I only had a little over 2T of curry powder and didn't have any cayenne, so I chopped up a packet of red pepper flakes from Pizza Hut until it was powdered. My Wonton wrapers were circular, not square and so easy to work with! I scored the edges with a fork on both sides. I had quite a bit of leftover filling (probably because of the additional potato) so I filled 15 small spring roll wrappers with the mixture and fried them up. They unravelled a bit while frying, so I would probably seal them with eggwhite instead of water. 5 star recipe, I will definitely make this again, though not for a while, as I have enough samosas to last quite a while. Shukria!

    I will have to try this. I LOVE Indian samosas! I've only had potato and peas, not peas and ground beef.
    Yes, I've had some delicious beef dishes at our favorite authentic Indian restaurant. It just depends on what area of India the recipes are from, as some areas don't eat beef, but some do!

    You can just call it the American version if you like. There are many Indian recipies which contain beef...look them up.
