MAKE THE SAMOSA FILLING

  4. Drain off the water and then mash the potatoes and peas together, then set them aside.
  5. Use a large saucepan and pour in the vegetable oil and heat it with medium high heat.
  6. Add the cumin seeds and bay leaf to the vegetable oil and brown for 60-90 seconds.

FILL THE SAMOSAS

  1. Please view the photos and / or video in this post to see exactly how to easily fill these samosas.
  2. Open the phyllo package and unroll it and lay it onto wax paper.
  3. Peel off one phyllo sheet and place it onto another piece of wax paper, then cover the rest of the phyllo sheets with wax paper or they will dry out quickly.
  4. Brush the melted butter across the phyllo sheet.
  5. Taking hold of the long side of the phyllo sheet, fold one third of the phyllo sheet over, then do the same with the other long side so that you have a long phyllo sheet with three layers.
  6. Take one end of the short side of the phyllo sheet and fold it over to form a triangle, where some of the folded phyllo sheet will be outside of the phyllo sheet underneath.
  7. Brush butter on the phyllo sheet above the triangle and fold it over one more time for another triangle, where the edges will align together. Please note that it helps to put your finger at the top of the previous triangle to get the fold where you want it. This creates the pocket for the filling.
  8. Pick up the phyllo sheet gently and open the pocket for the filling.
  9. Place approximately 2-3 tablespoons of the samosa filling into the pocket of each phyllo sheet.
  10. Fold the triangle three or four more times to complete the samosa and set it on the baking sheet.

Having some mango chutney, yogurt or sour cream on the side provides for some additional flavors that compliment the baked samosas. I personally like to mix the mango chutney with yogurt and use that as a dip for these baked beef samosas.
