60 min


Boil potatoes until tender in unsalted water. Drain off the water and mash the potatoes together with the chickpeas.

Fry finely minced chicken in oil in a hot frying pan until cooked through.
Add the spring onion, cumin, red chilli and fresh coriander.

Combine the chicken stuffing and potato stuffing. Set aside to cool.

Place one tablespoon of stuffing at the bottom centre of a sheet of filo pastry, and then lift one side over the filling to the long side so that you end up with a triangle. Fold the triangle over to the other side and repeat until you have used up the whole sheet of filo pastry. Secure the end flap with a little water or egg white.

Heat oil in a deep fryer or a frying pan with high edges. Deep fry the samosas until golden brown.
Serve with yoghurt.
