Samosa Pockets are a delicious, crispy and flaky pastry made with readymade sheets and a potato, peas and peanut suffing.
For the second day of Special Theme I have another recipe from my Sindhi Thali . These Samosa Pockets are not something truly Sindhi , but I have used a stuffing that mom used to prepare for Aloo Tikkis . The Aloo Tikkis were mom’s signature dish and she would make them every time there were guest . So while making these samosas , I used mom’s recipe of the stuffing .
The crust is the ready made samosa sheets that I get from Big Basket . I love these sheets as they are super easy and handy to use , besides they make absolutely crisp crust for any kind of patty . There are many ways to use these sheets and these Samosa Pockets is just one of them .
The pockets are very easy with folding and even a kid can make them without any difficulty . One just has to lay a sheet vertically , and another one over it horizontally , thus making a cross . The stuffing is placed on the center and then the sheets are folded and sealed with all purpose glue . The best part of these pockets is that you can make them ahead and freeze them , remove them just before frying , there’s no need to thaw them either .
If you do not want to fry these just brush them lightly with oil and bake them . You can even use a air fryer , like I have done . These pockets make a wonderful party or a rainy day snack . Serve them with some spicy green chutney and a cup of Elaichi wali Chai and you sure are to love the crispy , crunchy pockets .
Ready made Samosa Sheets / home made sheets
1 potato, boiled
1 cup green peas , boiled
1/2 cup coconut , grated
1/4 cup fried peanuts
2 green chillies , finely chopped
1 tbsp coriander leaves , finely chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste
Cut the potatoes into very small cubes.
Mix in the rest of the ingredients and check for seasoning .
Adjust the chilli as per your taste .
Preparing the pockets
Place a samosa sheet vertically on your board .
Place the second sheet horizontally over this sheet , thus forming a cross .
Place 2 tsp filling in the centre where the sheets overlap each other .
Fold the layers over the filling in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction so that alternate layers from both the pattis overlap each other creating a square packet.
Seal with all purpose slurry .
Once all pockets are done deep fry , roast , bake or air fry them .
