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