Yet another Russell
delight!!!! Carmi - we're making these!!!
with Cucumber & Mint Raita.
For the samosa wrappers
T = tablespoon
t = teaspoon
c = cup measurement
5c peeled courgette (zucchini)
3T olive oil
3t Lime juice
1/2t chili powder
2t garam masala
1/4c flax meal*
• Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
• Add flax meal and blend again until smooth.
• Pour mixture onto a non-stick dehydrator sheet and spread evenly into a square. you can choose the size, but for the ones in the photo the mixture was spread 26cm x 26cm square.
• Dehydrate for 8 hours at 105 degrees F, or until able to peel of the sheet.
• Once the dehydrator sheets are removed, return to the dehydrator for 30 mins, until both sides are dry to the touch but still pliable.
* Flax meal is flax seed that have been ground in a coffee grinder or similar, to produce a fine flour.
For the samosa filling
1c courgette (zucchini), peeled
1c sunflower seeds
1t dark miso
1T lemon juice
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
2t fresh ginger, minced
2T garam masala
8 sun-dried tomato halves
• Grind all ingredients in a food processor, leaving some texture to the mixture.
• Add the following ingredients and pulse* in:
1/2c tightly-packed spinach, chopped small
2 sliced spring onions (green onions)
1/4c diced tomatoes
1/4c coriander (cilantro), finely chopped
*Pulsing in done by switching the on/off switch several times in short bursts, so to chop the ingredients, leaving plenty of texture. Some food processors actually have a pulse button.
Step 1 - Cut the wrappers into strips approximately 7cm by 25cm, and fold over the corner of one end.
Steps 2, 3 & 4 - Fold the pointed end created by the first fold over as in step 4.
Step 5 - You will now be able to open the wrapper up into a cone.
Step 6 - Fill with the mixture.
Step 7 - Tuck the corner in so it doesn’t stick out.
Steps 8, 9 & 10 - Start folding the remaining part of the wrapper around so it forms that familiar triangle shape.
Steps 11 & 12 - Wet the remaining corner of the wrapper and fold into place to seal the samosa.
Step 13 - The completed samosa.
• The samosas can be eaten as they are or can be returned to the dehydrator for as long as you like. I like to do this as they will be warm and ready to eat in a few hours.
