  • 4 medium potatoes, roughly chopped

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed or ½ teaspoon garlic granules

  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped

  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Medium Curry Powder

  • 100 grams frozen peas

  • Schwartz Sea Salt and Black Pepper to season

  • 8 sheets of filo pastry

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted (around 30g when solid)

  • 1/2 tablespoon Black Onion Seed

  • 150 grams natural yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon Mint Herb

  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  • 1 Pre-heat the oven to 190°C, 170°C fan, Gas Mark 5.
  • 2 Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add the potatoes and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 12-15 minutes, or until tender. Mash the potatoes and set aside.
  • 3 Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a saucepan. Add the onion, garlic and carrot and sauté for 5 minutes, until soft. Add the Schwartz Medium Curry Powder and frozen peas, and sauté for a further 3 minutes. Add the sautéed vegetables to the mashed potato and mix until combined. Season with Schwartz Sea Salt and Black Pepper.
  • 4 To assemble the samosas, stack two sheets of filo pastry and cut into 4 rectangles. Place 2 tbsp of the vegetable mix into the centre of one of the layered filo rectangles. Roll one corner towards the centre, then fold in the left and right corners to create a triangle shape. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Black Onion Seeds. Repeat with the remaining filo pastry and vegetable filling.
  • 5 Place the samosas onto a lined baking tray and transfer to the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden.
  • 6 Meanwhile, to make the raita, combine the natural yogurt with the Mint, caster sugar and Sea Salt.
  • 7 Serve the samosas hot from the oven with the refreshing mint raita.
