Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 12 Samosas
- 1 ½ tsp . vegetable oil
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic crushed
- 500 g lean turkey mince
- ½ tsp ground coriander
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp mild chilli powder
- 1 tsp garam masala
- Low fat cooking spray
- 12 filo pastry sheets
Spray a little oil onto an oven tray and rub all over with your fingers to very lightly grease it
Pre-heat oven to 180C fan
Heat the vegetable oil in a medium sized pan over a medium heat
Sauté the onion and garlic until soft, approximately 3 to 4 minutes
Add turkey mince, breaking it down with a fork, coriander, ginger, chilli powder and garam masala. Cook, stirring for about 10 minutes until the mince has browned and all the spices are absorbed, and set aside.
Take one sheet of filo pastry, spray it with the low fat cooking spray and fold it in half lengthways, then spray it again so you have a long strip (2 layers of filo pastry)
Place about 2 tbsp. of the turkey mince mixture at one end of the strip, leaving a 2cm / 1-inch border. Fold a corner over, diagonally to the left, making an enclosed triangle. Fold again, moving all the way along until the end of the strip. Spray the outside. Place the samosa on the greased baking tray
Repeat the process with the other 7 sheets
Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes, turning the samosas over halfway through
Once sizzling and a golden brown colour, allow the samosas to cool a little
Delicious serve with a salad of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and a little mango chutney
