Samosas by Aunty

Adam's aunt makes the BEST Samosas. Another great thing about Louisiana is visiting family and having some yummy homemade Indian food. I have these hopes of keeping recipes alive from both our families, but it turns out most people don't use recipes. But, on our trip, his aunt walked me through making homemade Samosas!!
Step 1:
Cook ground beef and drain ALL the oil; put back in pot to stir to get dry. Add salt, garlic paste, and ginger paste.

Step 2:
Let meat cool, then add chopped onions, cilantro and green onions (chilis optional) to taste
*this is your filling (notice how there are no measurements)
Step 3:
Lay out Spring Roll Pastry Squares (cut off 1/2 inch). Make "glue" out of flour and water--should be paste. Fold in half (long side)

Then fold down diagonally with edge

Pinch corner and fold down again making a funnel type pocket

Spoon in 1-2 spoonfuls of filling and press down into pocket

Put paste on pastry edge and fold over to seal, repeat for top and other "loose" edges.
Finished product is shaped like a triangle.

Deep Fry on Med - High heat until golden brown; let drain standing on one corner.
ENJOY. (we just ate these and they were AMAZING!)
