Indian Samosa Casserole

Indian Samosa Casserole

Serves 6

Everything you love about Indian samosas is here in one low-fat, easy-to-make pie. Serve with Cucumber Raita or Tofu Raita.
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs. black or yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ⅛ tsp. red pepper flakes, optional
  • 5 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered (1 ¼ lb.)
  • 1 ½ tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced (1 cup)
  • 1 medium carrot, diced (½ cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tsp. agave nectar or sugar
  • 2 Tbs. soymilk

1. To make Crust: Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk together flours and salt in bowl. Stir in oil until clumps form. Add 6 to 10 Tbs. cold water, 1 Tbs. at a time, until dough holds together. Shape into ball, cover with damp towel, and set aside.

2. To make Filling: Stir together mustard seeds, curry, ginger, cumin, and red pepper flakes, if using, in bowl; set aside.

3. Cook potatoes in boiling salted water 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain, return to pot, and mash, leaving small chunks.

4. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes, or until carrot is tender. Move onion mixture to side of pan, and add mustard seed mixture in center. Toast 30 seconds. Stir in peas and broth. Fold onion mixture into potato mixture; stir in agave nectar. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Spread Filling in 9-inch pie pan. Set aside.

5. Roll out Crust dough to 11-inch circle on floured work surface. Cover Filling with dough, pressing down to make sure no air pockets remain. Trim away excess dough, and crimp edges with fingers. Cut X in center to vent steam; brush with soymilk just before baking. Place pie on baking sheet, and bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until crust is golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

6. Frozen cooking instructions: Preheat oven to 375°F. Place casserole on baking sheet, and bake 75 to 90 minutes, or until Filling bubbles and Crust is golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

The Indian Samosa Casserole mentions broth in Step 4, but where does the broth come from? It's not among the list of ingredients or mentioned in preceding steps 1-3.

Have made this recipe a few times now! Switched out half the potatoes for yams. I add a protein, anything works. Lovely as is but could double the spice if you want. Used a different crust recipe or premade frozen. Serve with mango chutney. Love this dish!

With a few personal touches, loved this recipe. No time to make pastry, used store bought. I always precook the bottom shell before adding ingredients so the filling does not make the shell soft. Used less potatoes and more carrots. Used chili infused oil to sauté onions. coated onions with spices. Used more spices than recommended. Added raisins for sweetness. Served with the cucumber salad on chopped romaine and a mint ice tea. Fresh and tasty.

Delicious! I doubled the spices as recommended!

Made this two nights ago, absolutely delicious! Can't wait to make it again. Used a store bought pie crust to save time but otherwise followed directions as written and it came out perfectly! Served with the raita (link in this recipe) suggested. Was a hit with my kids as well.

Very good. Doubled the spices & used crescent roll dough.

Laura - 2014-11-28 15:57:39

I just made it but it split! The upper part of dough is now separate from the bottom((((((( why? What did I do wrong? There was enough of dough, and I made a cross to let the air out...

Coriander for sure and I also like to use a few squeezes of lime juice when I make samosa filling, so maybe that would add sme zest to this pie filling too. I'm trying it tonight!

Amanda - 2014-09-08 22:05:36
