Samosa is an Indian pastry lightly filled with savoury filling. The filling varies from vegetarian, chicken or in this recipe spicy beef with peas, my favourite. Next time you crave a hearty snack try this gluten-free spicy beef samosa or serve as an appetizer at dinner parties. A classic Indian snack such as samosa has become one of the most popular appetizers. For a casual dinner, I serve these spiced up gluten-free beef samosas with a green salad. Serve fresh or re-heat in the oven just before serving

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. minced ginger
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp. GF red chilli pepper flakes
  • 3/4 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp. GF curry powder
  • 1 tsp. GF ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. GF ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Pure sea salt
  • 3/4 cup frozen or fresh peas
  • SAMOSA DOUGH
  • 1 tsp. Xanthan gum, add only if the baking flour mix doesn’t include xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp. GF aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Pure sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. GF ground turmeric (adds natural colour and is optional)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • Instructions

  • SPICY BEEF FILLING
  • Sauté onions in olive oil until translucent. About 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, ginger, and chilli pepper flakes.
  • Add beef, curry powder, cumin, cinnamon and salt. Cook until browned
  • Add peas and cook until heated through. Set aside
  • SAMOSA DOUGH
  • Whisk together flour, xanthan gum, salt and turmeric. Add milk and olive oil and mix until a dough forms. Cover with plastic wrap and rest the dough for 30 minutes
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, about the size of a lime and roll out the dough into thin rounds between two pieces of plastic wrap. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the filling in the center of the dough. Using the plastic wrap, overlap the dough in three layers creating a triangle. Using your fingers press the edges together. Place samosas on parchment paper.
  • Fry samosas in 1/2-inch vegetable oil over medium-high heat, until golden brown. About 3 - 4 minutes per side. Place on paper towel or wire rack to drain.
