Samosas made with slightly sprouted brown lentils, dried apricot, yam, onion, coconut milk, and some spice. Serve hot. My 2-year-old boy loves them!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add curry powder, cardamom, ginger, cumin, and cayenne pepper; stir to coat. Mix lentils, yam, water, and coconut milk into onion mixture; cook and stir over low heat until liquid is mostly reduced and lentils are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove wok from heat and lightly mash mixture.

  • Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons lentil mixture into the center of each pastry; fold pastry over filling creating a triangle. Fold edges into the triangle to seal. Arrange samosas on a baking sheet and brush remaining olive oil over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

The sweet potato and seasonings compliment the lentils! Instead of the wrap you suggested I made tortillas to put the mixture into. This was the 2nd time I made the recipe and hope to have it many more times! Read More

I loved these! Any people thought that they were so fancy when they were relatively easy to prepare. I cut out some of the spices that I didn't have (like ginger), but for the most part I followed the recipe to a tee. The only note I'd like to make is I wasn't quite sure when to add the apricots because they were mentioned in the ingredients but not the directions. Maybe I just lack cooking intuition, but I ended up just making my apricots my "during cooking" snack instead of an ingredient in my samosas. All in all I loved them and will definitely be making them for a party! Read More

The taste of the recipe is pretty good, but it took significantly longer than the time listed, and it needs some kind of dipping sauce - even with the seasoning, the end result is borderline bland. Read More

Delicious! Instead of the samosa wrappers I used filo dough and it worked perfectly. I also paired it with a cilantro yogurt dip which made it less dry. Read More

Turned out delicious! My kids ages 2-11 devoured them and asked for more. My picky husband also enjoyed them. I’ll be making these again soon! I did add salt to the lentils and topped the wonton wrappers with sea salt before putting in the oven. Read More
