This time ChillipepperPete has sent us a recipe for some Hot and Spicy Vegetarian Somosas.

A Somosa is a fried or baked triangular shaped pastry shell with a savory filling, they originate from South and Central Asia.


  • 14 sheets of filo pastry
  • 3 large boiled and coarsley mashed potatoes.
  • 75g frozen peas
  • 50g sweetcorn
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 green chillis or 1 fresh naga
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaf
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint
  • A little oil

Preheat oven to 200c. Cut each filo in half lengthways to give 28 thin strips. Lightly brush with oil.

Toss all the filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Add salt and lemon to taste.

Using 1 strip of the pastry at a time, place 1 tbsp of the mixture at one end of the strip and diagonally fold the pastry up to form a triangle shape.

Dont overfill or they will burst. Brush with oil and either bake in the oven or shallow fry gently for a crisp finish.

Fried stuff always tastes best though.

You can order Naga chillies online from ChilliPepperPete
