This is such a special recipe. Samosas are one of those spectacular Indian foods that is often deep fried – and not necessarily great for the body. Gluten Free Vegan girl has come up with an oil free, gluten free and more importantly, whole food samosa recipe. And it’s good. Really good!
What surprised me was that I made a batch and had heaps of left over filling so I put the rest in puff pastry (knowing my kids love anything in pastry!) and both of them preferred the buckwheat version! I was stoked. So grab yourself some brown rice flour, buckwheat flour and flaxseed or chia. They don’t look spectacular but the taste it!
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 1 cup buckwheat flour
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseeds (I used chia)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup water
Sweet potato & green pea filling:
- 4 heaped cups cubed sweet potatoes, with or without peel (I added in some carrot etc too)
- 2 cups green peas or lentils (frozen or fresh)
- 2 yellow onions, chopped
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- a few tbsp water
Spices, to taste:
- garam masala
- red curry powder
- ground ginger
- garlic powder
- cayenne pepper
