Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef, onion, and garlic; cook until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

  • Mix in coriander, cumin, salt, turmeric, chile powder, and ginger. Add peas and water; bring to boil. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 25 minutes. Uncover and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until any remaining liquid evaporates.

  • Stir jalapenos and garam masala into the beef mixture. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice; let cool until safe to handle, at least 15 minutes.

  • Drop about 1 tablespoon of the beef mixture onto the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten edges with water, fold them over the filling, and seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wonton wrappers.

  • Heat about 1/2 inch oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add samosas in batches; fry until browned, 1 to 2 inches per side.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

I ve always wanted to try Samosas and what better way to try them than to make them! These definitely did not disappoint. The only change that I made was using a 1/2 tbsp instead of the full tablespoon because the won tons were breaking from being too full. Either that or use egg roll wrappers instead of the won tons.

Pretty good. Lots of work; the spices were a bit overwhelming but all in all pretty good. Read More

I love this recipe! Only changes were I used jarred minced goner and garlic and used ground beef/pork blend (all I had on hand). Omg you would never notice there was pork in it. My first bite I thought the flavour a bit mild but a couple spoonfuls later I discovered it is spot on. Just enough spice to make your mouth warm but not so much that you're running for the milk lol. I will definitely be making this again soon! Read More
