Deep Frying Day 🔥 🔥

It’s always so much nicer to deep fry in a bigger kitchen! (And thank goodness it’s not too hot here in Edinburgh!) I was oddly craving for some fried food this weekend, so I decided to make some simple veggie samosas today! 😋👌

The dough is very simple (so much so it doesn’t even really needed a recipe haha!) – it is basically flour with a teaspoon of olive oil and a couple of spoonfuls of water until the dough comes together after some kneading. (I used wholemeal plain flour.) Most of the fillings came from scraps I could find in my family’s fridge/freezer – butternut squash, broccoli, fried tofu, garlic, coriander and spring onions seasoned with some spices including turmeric and chilli powder.

I went for a very simple triangular ‘pyramid’ fold, which is basically folding the three corners over the filling and sealing it with a ‘glue’ made from flour and water.

I then served these with a dipping sauce made from cucumber, coriander, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil and fish sauce (plus salt and sugar.) It was a delicious Saturday snack! 😋 😋
