Madhuri.Dixit's picture
  Filo pastry sheets 12
  Groundnut oil 2 Tablespoon
  Peeled cooked prawns 6 Ounce (175 Grams)
  Tomato puree 1 Tablespoon
  Garam masala 1 Teaspoon
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Ground coriander 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garlic pulp 1 Teaspoon
  Ginger pulp 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Fromage frais 4 Tablespoon (Virtually Fat-Free)
  Chopped fresh coriander 1 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 2 Teaspoon
  Mushrooms 4 , thinly sliced
  Red pepper 1⁄2 , deseeded and diced
  Carrot 1 , diced
  Sweet corn kernels 2 Ounce (60 Grams)

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5. Keep the sheets of pastry rolled together under a damp cloth as otherwise they dry out fast and become difficult to work with. Rinse the prawns and pat them dry with paper towels.
2. In a bowl, mix together the tomato puree, garam masala, chilli powder, ground coriander, garlic, ginger, salt, fromage frais, fresh coriander and lemon juice, together with 4 tablespoons water.
3. Transfer this mixture to a kadahi, wok or deep frying pan and cook over a moderate heat for about 1 minute.
4 Add the prawns, mushrooms, pepper, carrot and sweetcorn. Stir-fry over a medium to low heat for 5-7 minutes, or until the mixture has become fairly dry. Remove the mixture from the heat.
5. Working quickly with 2 or 3 sheets of pastry at a time and using a plate or saucer as a template, cut two or three 15-cm / 5-inch rounds from each sheet. Oil each round lightly and arrange 3 rounds on top of each other. Put about one-eighth of the prawn and vegetable mixture just to one side of the centre of the the pastry round and fold the pastry over to make a semi-circle. Press down lightly and seal by folding the edges two or three times like a hem and pinching. Brush the outside of the parcel lightly with oil.
6. Once all the samosas are made, put them in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes until just nicely golden.
