When I was in doctoral school at California Lutheran Univeristy, my best friend, Roopa, was from India. She took me on shopping trips to Artesia, LA’s Little India, and was happy to share her culture and food with me. We had so much fun. These Samosas brought back great memories
This type of filled deep-fried snack is enjoyed in many cultures in many forms around the world: Empanadas; Won Tons; and Spanakopitas, to name a few.
Filled with Potatoes, Onions, Carrots, and Peas, and aromatic spices, these Samosas are addicting. In place of the Curry the recipe calls for, we used Garam Masala seasoning. The filling recipe made enough for 2 pastry recipes – so we have leftover filling to make more! We also thought the filling was good enough to serve as a side dish all on its own. Serve with Mango Chutney.
I took the liberty of converting the metric measurements. You can find a printable version of the recipe here.
I love lemon cake, so when I saw this one featured on Candy Girl Cooks blog, I knew I wanted to try it. And, I’m so glad I did! Very elegant cake with a velvety crumb. I think it would be lovely for Easter. I had some blueberries, so I threw them in, and the cake turned out great. I love that this cake is made in a 9″ x 13″ pan but still looks elegant.
