Gluten Free Samosas

image

I love samosas. But alas, I could not find any gluten free ones near me. So I had to make some. Unfortunately I don’t know how to fold them, but that will come with time and practice.

Ingredients:

Dough:
2 cups Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Tapioca Flour
1 tsp xantham gum
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup rice flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water

Filling:
1 teaspoon salt
5 medium peeled potatoes
1 cup green peas
1/2 tsp clove powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp turmeric
3 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil

Method:

Dough:
Sift Bob’s red mill flour, tapioca flour, xantham gum and salt together. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to flour and mix. Slowly add water, a little at a time while mixing, until it forms a dough like texture.  Cover dough and set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Filling:
Peel and cook potatoes in salted water until tender. Mash. In a frying pan add oil, peas and spices. Let cook for 2 minutes while stirring. Add mashed potatoes and cook for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool.

How I Assembling my Samosas:
Roll dough into 2 inch balls. Use a rolling pin to roll a ball into a 1/4 inch circle. Add filling and fold in half. Repeat until all of the dough is gone.  Fry samosas Until they are lightly brown (or as crispy as you like them) Or bake in oven.

Lentil Rolls (Gluten free, vegan)

I tried a new recipe for some dough and I think it turned out pretty great.

For Lentil Filling

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked

1 heaping tbsp tomato paste (ok 2 tbsp tomato paste)

1 huge chive, diced

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp Italian herbs

1/2 tsp minced garlic

Oil

Salt to taste

Method:

Add about 1 tbsp oil to a frying pan on low heat and add herbs stirring and tomato paste, stirring constantly. When tomato paste begins to get brown add lentils and let cook on high heat for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup water and let cook until most of water dries out.

For Dough

Ingredients:

2 cups gluten free flour

1/2 cup flax meal

1/4 cup cassava flour (optional but I like it)

1/4 cup oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup ice cold water

Method:

Add flour, salt and flax meal to a bow and mix well. Add oil and mix until mixture is crumly like sand. Slowly add water while kneading until it forms into a soft, but not sticky ball.

Roll dough into a long rectangular piece. Place lentil mixture near the right side of your dough. Roll and add water to the edge to make sure it closes.

cut to desired lenght.

place on a greased baking tray and bake for 10 – 15 minutes at 350.
