Dum Aloo Triangles

Dum aloo triangles are a spicy twist on the classic samosas. Quicker than samosas and baked, not fried. I think this recipe will definitely make it to my party appetizer list.

What you need:

1 pack of Puff pastry (approx. 350 grams)

Aloo Dum (I have used the Aloo Dum recipe from Archana’s Kitchen. Follow the link to view the recipe.)

Method:

  1. Pre heat oven to gas mark 5 or 200 degrees Celsius for about 10-12 minutes.
  2.  Roll out the puff pastry sheet about 1 cm thick.
  3.  Cut into 12 squares using a pastry wheel.
  4.  Place 1 heaped spoon of the dum aloo in the centre of each pastry square.
  5.  Fold along the diagonal to form triangles. Make sure you seal the edges – a little water works very well.
  6.  Lightly grease a baking sheet and place the triangles on it.
  7.  Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the pastry has puffed and is golden and crusty.
  8.  Serve hot.

Notes:

  •  The puff pastry quantity  mentioned in this recipe makes 12 triangles.
  •  As indicated in the Aloo Dum recipe , it serves 4-5  people, so  even after you’ve used this for the pastries, you will have plenty of the Aloo Dum leftover for a yummy meal! Of course, you can always double the quantity of pastry and make 24 triangles instead, if you want to use it up.

    Looks great! BTW, do you roll the pastry sheet to 1cm or 1mm thickness?
