Yield:
12 servings (serving size: 2 samosas and 1 1/2 teaspoons chutney)

This dish uses leftover mashed potatoes in a big batch of Indian-inspired snacks—good for parties.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

To prepare chutney, combine first 8 ingredients in a food processor; process 1 minute or until smooth. Spoon mixture into a bowl; cover and refrigerate.

Step 3

To prepare samosas, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add carrot, and cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add peas, mustard seeds, garam masala, and salt; cover and cook 2 minutes. Stir in potatoes; remove from heat.

Step 4

Working with 1 phyllo sheet at a time, cut each sheet lengthwise into 3 (3 x 14-inch) strips, and coat with cooking spray. (Cover remaining phyllo dough to keep from drying.) Spoon 1 tablespoon potato mixture onto 1 end of each strip. Fold 1 corner of phyllo dough over mixture, forming a triangle; keep folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Place triangles, seam sides down, on a baking sheet. Brush triangles with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Bake at 350° for 23 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature with chutney.

These are really good. Everyone loved them. I added the peas along with the potatos at the end so as not to overcook the peas. The second time I made them for a party I froze the unbaked samosa & then baked just before serving - turned out great.

I've made these many times to rave reviews each time! They are easy to make ahead and keep on a baking sheet before a party, popping them in the oven shortly before serving. Delicious, filling, and healthy! I've served them as appetizers and as a main dish accompanied by salad. Highly recommend!

My husband and I really liked these. I added a little Cayenne pepper to them to give them a kick. I would definitely make them again.

I haven't made these yet but was wondering if anyone could tell me if they are actually crispy,since they aren't fried as usual:/

personally, I am just too slow in the kitchen to assemble these guys in a reasonable amount of time. I also find phyllo difficult to work with, so I tried a puff pastry instead and I wasn't happy with the consistency of the pastry. Any tips?
