- Thaw the puff pastry sheets for 40 mins. The instructions may differ for other brands.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Boil the potatoes and dice into small cubes. (I just microwaved them in a bowl of water)
- Coarsely crush the spices in a mortar and pestle. I happen to love the taste and texture of freshly ground spices. You can use garam masala or finely powder the spices.

- Add the asafoetida powder
- Add the spices and fry till fragrant.
- Add crushed ginger and garlic.
- Add the potatoes, turmeric and salt.

- Cut into 3 inch squares.
- Put each square into an ungreased muffin pan.
- Add 1 or 1.5 tsp of filling in each cup
- Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
- Serve wth condiments of your choice (tomato sauce, chilli sauce, coriander chutney, or tamarind chutney)
- One sheet of pastry dough makes about 25 shamosas.
