  • 2 tbsp Patak’s® Mild Curry Spice Paste
  • 3 yellow potatoes, peeled, cut into 0.5″ cubes and cooked
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 package phyllo pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 1 jar Patak’s® Sweet (or Hot) Mango Chutney (for dipping)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F (176 °C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  3. Sauté the onion, garlic and ginger until the onions are soft.
  4. Add the Patak’s® Mild Curry Spice Paste and cook for 2 min.
  5. Stir in the cooked potatoes and frozen peas, and cook for 2 to 3 min.
  6. Stir in the coriander. Remove from heat and let cool.
  7. Unroll the sheets of phyllo and, using kitchen shears, cut it into three long strips.
  8. On each strip, place a heaping spoonful of filling at the narrow end.
  9. Fold into triangles, heading up the strip.
  10. Place samosas on the prepared baking sheet.
  11. Brush the samosas with egg wash (this will make them crisp up in the oven).
  12. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 min, until samosas are brown and crispy.
  13. Serve with Patak’s® Mango Chutney.


Serve with Patak’s® Sweet Mango Chutney and/or plain yogurt for dipping.
