    These take a bit of time to prepare, but the end result is so worth it! They are not difficult to make, however. (cook time is for each batch)

      This how I make samosas too and it's delicious. I didn't put pinenuts in mine and instead of the garlic, I added 1 tbsp (for 2 lbs of meat) of the ginger-garlic paste (see my recipe). Excellent!

      I only used the "filling" portion of the recipe. I used lamb and more garlic (5 cloves). I also added some frozen veggies. It turned out really yummy. I used Samosas to make the pastry.
