In my opinion, no party is complete without samosas, India’s most popular snack food. These triangular pastries are incredibly versatile because they can be stuffed with many different types of vegetables, minced meat, or lentils. In this recipe, I’m keeping it classic with a traditional filling of potatoes and peas, but with a modern twist. Serve them with tamarind chutney, a tangy-sweet condiment you can purchase in bottles at an Indian grocery store or online. (But if you can’t get a hold of tamarind chutney, ketchup works just fine too.)
Samosas are typically fried, with a dough that’s made from scratch. I don’t personally like the idea of deep-frying, nor do I want your house to smell like hot oil during a party, so my solution is to use wonton wrappers. The result is crispy packets that are easy to throw in the oven, and even easier to pick up and nibble while watching a Bollywood movie.
