This samosa pie is based on my favorite Samosas from my hometown. It used to be a huge samosa, filled with a super flavorful potato filling. Samosas vary a lot based of the filling and shell. The filling can be a simple spiced mashed potatoes where you add some ground spices to mashed potatoes and it’s ready. In todays version, we cook the whole spices such as cumin and coriander seeds then add the aromatics, cashews, spices, ginger, mashed potatoes, peas and mint! These potatoes are so incredible!

What made that samosa so special is that it was made with so much flavor coming from the potato filling. You can use my other quicker samosa potatoes or make this version for the special day!  I made the filling in the Instant Pot but I list the alternative cooking method for stovetop potatoes in the tips section.

Ingredients

For the samosa potatoes

  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons cashews
  • ½ of green chili such as Serrano finely chopped
  • ¾ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne, less or more for taste
  • 2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups (420 g) cubed potatoes, 3/4 inch cubes loaded cups
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon chaat masala or dried mango powder (amchoor)or add more lemon later
  • 1/3 cup (78.86 ml) of water
  • ¼ cup (36.25 g) fresh or thawed frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

For the pastry

  • One 9×9 inch sheet of vegan puff pastry
  • some baby greens of choice. This is optional

Instructions

  • Make the samosa potatoes in the instant pot: Start the instant pot on sauté setting then add oil. (See notes for stove top instructions)

  • Once oil is hot, add in the cumin seeds, coriander seeds and cook for about 30 seconds. You can also crush the seeds if you don’t like the whole coriander seeds in your mouth.

  • Once the seeds significantly darken in color, add in the onion, green chili, cashews and a good pinch of salt and mix in. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, garlic powder and chaat masala and mix in. then add potatoes, salt, water and give it a good mix to pick up any stuck bits.

  • Select the cancel setting. Lock the lid into place, set pressure knob to sealing,  and select pressure cook on manual setting at high pressure and set the cook time to 5 minutes, 6 minutes if the potato cubes are larger

  • Once the cooking cycle is done, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes then  carefully set the pressure release knob from sealing to venting to release any remaining pressure. Open the lid then mash some of the potatoes, then add the peas, cilantro, mint and lemon juice and mix really well.

  • Taste and adjust salt and heat and flavor then remove the pot from instant pot to keep potatoes from continuing to cook because the plate continues to stay hot.

  • Thaw the puff pastry sheet on a counter for 15-20 minutes if you haven’t already. I usually take it out just before cooking the potatoes and it thaws to the right extent for the 20 ish minutes it takes the potatoes to get done.

  • Using a little bit of flour, roll it out on parchment, to at least double the size. Transfer to a baking sheet. Then spread the potato mixture onto the one half of the puff pastry sheet and spread well. Keep a ½ inch of border around the potatoes so that it can stick puff pastry edges.

  • Top it with some greens of choice, you can also add a drizzle of chutneys of choice here and then fold over. Brush a little bit of water between the sheets, then press to seal with a fork.

  • Snip a few vents on top of the puff pastry sheet and put it in the oven at 400F (205C) for 18-22 minutes, depends on your oven and the pan.

  • Once the puff pastry is nicely golden, take it out, let it cool for 5 minutes then slice using a sharp knife into whatever size pieces you like and serve with Chutneys of choice,Such as tamarind date chutney, mango chutney or other dips such as barbecue sauce

  • Store refrigerated for upto 4 days and freeze of upto a month.

Notes

Glutenfree: The potatoes are gluten free so you can add them to a gluten-free  pie crust and make hand pies to make this gluten free.
To make this nut free, just omit the cashews.
To make this on the stove top, follow the sautéing steps in a skillet, then add in cubed boiled/cooked potatoes and just 2-3 tablespoons of water and mix in. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes for the flavors to meld. Then open the lid, mash some of the potatoes and add in the peas, cilantro, mint, lemon juice and mix really well. Cook for another minute and take off heat. Taste and adjust salt and flavor then use the potatoes
