Indian Spiced Samosa Patties



Prep time


Cooking time






  • 3 large Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, chopped, and boiled

  • ½ cup frozen peas

  • ¼ cup onion, chopped

  • 1 ½ teaspoons curry powder or more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon salt plus a couple dashes of flour

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • ½ cup flour

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • In a small pot, cook the peas and onions in one tablespoon of butter over medium heat until onion softens, about 5 minutes.

  • Place the cooked potatoes in a large bowl. Once the peas and onions are cooked, add them to the potatoes.

  • Add the curry powder, ground ginger, salt, pepper, and one tablespoon of butter to the potato mixture. Use a potato masher to mash it all up.

  • Place the flour and a few dashes of salt in a small bowl, set aside. Line a plate with paper towels.

  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of butter and the two tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

  • Form the potato mixture into small patties and dredge them in the flour. Once the oil and butter is sizzling, place a few patties in the pan. Cook until golden brown, about three minutes on each side.

  • Once they are cooked, place them on the paper towel lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining patties.

  • Serve warm and enjoy!
