Cheese and Spinach Samosa


These samosas are adapted from Greek Spanakopita or Turkish Borek

Ingredients
1 cup thawed frozen chopped spinach
1 cup finely chopped spring onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
2 cloves garlic; crushed
1 inch ginger; grated
2 green chillies; crushed
1/4 tspn garam masala
200 gm /8 oz Feta cheese; crumbled (mash using a fork)
NO SALT (feta cheese is very salty)
20 samosa pastries (or filo pastry)




Method
1. Drain the spinach in a colander
2. Mix the spinach, spring onions, coriander and cheese
3. Add the garlic, ginger and crushed chilies, mix
4. Add the garam masala and mix. There is no need to cook the filling as it gets cooked during frying or baking
5. Fold the samosa as shown here
6. Fry the samosa in hot oil, or brush with oil and bake in the oven at 200 degrees centigrade for 25 minutes.
ENJOY

Happy cook, you should be able to buy the pastry in Indian stores, if not you can use Chinese spring roll pastry, or Greek/Turkish filo pastry.

Don't underestimate the filo its really hard to fold and goes brittle easily (keep moist). Although they look amazing after frying.!WARNING-USE FLOUR ON YOUR SURFACE! Taste great...eating one now! Thanks for the recipe! X
