Preparation

Stir in the garam masala, turmeric, cumin, and cayenne; cook, stirring, until fragrant. Add the cream and 1 tsp. salt, and bring to a simmer.
  • Return the potatoes to the pan and mash. Stir in the peas and warm through. Stir in the cilantro, and serve garnished with more cilantro and a lemon wedge, if you like.

    These samosa potatoes are outstanding, much better than the traditional type. These are almost too good to put in actual samosas.

    Haven't tried it yet, but I will. I think this would be great as a filling for an empanadas, or wrapped in puff pastry as a turnover. I've done it before with great success, being careful to not mash the potatoes up too much. But the seasonings in this recipe look very good and worth a try.

    I cannot review because I have not made it but as a big fan of samosas I am anxious to try it
