Serves 30-36




  • 3 medium russet potatoes, peeled (about 4 cups when diced)
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil, plus additional for frying
  • 1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
  • ½ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ¾ cup frozen peas, thawed
  • ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 1 package Ready-To-Fill Samosa Pastries (available at Indian markets)
  • 2 Tablespoons flour and cold water to make a paste to seal the edges of the samosas

Mango Chutney

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 cups mangoes (3 to 4 mangoes) , peeled and chopped into ½ inch pieces
  • ½ cup vidalia onion, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup red pepper, finely chopped
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon whole mustard seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Peanut Cilantro Chutney

  • 2½ cups fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • ¾ cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • ½ small jalapeno finely chopped
  • ¼ inch piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ⅓ cup water



  1. Place potatoes in large pot covered with water.Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool. When cooled, finely dice.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp. canola oil over medium heat. When oil is hot add cumin seeds and cook until they start to make a popping sound. Add red onion and cook to soften. Add the potatoes, coriander, turmeric, salt and cayenne and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add peas, ginger, sugar, fresh cilantro and lime juice. Mix well with a fork to incorporate all ingredients. Set aside to cool.
  4. Line a large baking sheet with paper towels and set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and some water to make a thin paste.
  6. Keep pastry sheets covered with a damp paper towel to prevent drying out.
  7. Fill and fold the samosa pastry sheets with a teaspoon or so of the potato mixture, sealing the last fold with the flour paste to seal.
  8. Fill a heavy, deep skillet with about 2 inches of canola oil and heat over medium low heat. Fry samosas in batches (being careful not to crowd the skillet) for 2 minutes each side or until lightly browned. If they are browning too quickly, reduce heat.
  9. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon to prepared sheet.
  10. Serve with chutneys.
