  1. 1.
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt. Add the vegetable oil and mix until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. 2.
    Gradually add water and knead the dough until it forms a smooth ball. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  3. 3.
    In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent.

    Add the diced carrot, frozen peas, and diced red bell pepper to the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are slightly tender.
  5. 5.
    Stir in the ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to allow the spices to release their flavors.

    Remove the skillet from heat and let the vegetable mixture cool. Once cooled, stir in the chopped fresh cilantro.

    Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. 8.
    Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a thin circle.

    Place a spoonful of the vegetable filling in the center of each dough circle. Fold the dough over the filling to form a triangle and seal the edges by pressing them together.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Carrot — Make sure to dice the carrot into small, uniform pieces to ensure even cooking.
  • Frozen peas — Thaw the peas before adding them to the vegetable mixture to prevent excess moisture.
  • Fresh cilantro — Rinse the cilantro thoroughly and pat it dry before chopping to remove any dirt or impurities.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier kick, add a pinch of chili powder or cayenne pepper to the vegetable filling.
  • Serve the Dutch-style samosas with a side of tangy Dutch mustard or a refreshing yogurt dip.
  • If you prefer a richer flavor, brush the samosas with melted butter before baking.
  • Experiment with different vegetable combinations such as mushrooms, leeks, or spinach for a unique twist.
  • Leftover samosas can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Serving advice

Serve the Dutch-style samosas as an appetizer or snack. They can be enjoyed on their own or paired with a dipping sauce of your choice. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro for an added touch of freshness.

Presentation advice

Arrange the samosas on a platter, allowing their golden brown color to shine. Consider serving them alongside a small bowl of Dutch mustard or a dollop of yogurt dip for an attractive presentation.
