About the recipe
Samosas are super yummy! It's an Indian dish, a bit like a spring roll. You can make samosas yourself by clicking the chefs' hat. Most supermarkets will have them frozen as well, or you can swap them for spring rolls. We're serving the crispy treats with rice salad and raita. Enjoy!
1. Cook the rice according to the packet. Finely chop onion and garlic. Rinse and clean the bell pepper, peel the carrots and cut both into thin strips. Sautée onion, garlic and curry for a couple of minutes in a bit of olive oil on a pan.
2. Add bell pepper, carrots and frozen peas and continue to sautée until everything has a nice sear. Mix the veggies with the rice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Warm a good dash of olive oil in a deep pan. Fry samosas or spring rolls until golden, and leave to drip off on some kitchen roll. Remember to turn them as you go. You can also cook them in the oven, according to the packet.
4. And now for the raita. Rinse and finely chop the mint. Wash the cucumber, split it lengthways and remove the seeds. Roughly grate the cucumber and squeeze out as much moisture from the grated cucumber as you can. We suggest wringing it in a clean dishtowel.
5. Mix cucumber, mint and yoghurt in a bowl and season to taste with salt. Serve the crispy samosas with raita and rice salad.
Tasks for kids in the kitchen: Let your kids help make the raita. They can rinse, grate and squeeze the cucumber, mix everything together, season and taste.
We've made an easy drawing showing how to fold samosas, if you're making them yourself.
