I used the samosas recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance today. I'm pretty sure that my oven was on for a hour before every thing was ready to be put in. I made a note in my book to ignore her instructions on preheating.
Other then that, these were pretty good. They have a stronger mustard seed flavor then many of the samosas that I've had but that was ok. I can always adjust flavorings. The samosas I made from The Vegan Lunchbox were so incredibly bland. The filling was barely off white. The filling from VWAV was a nice yellow with plenty of vegetables. I used green peas and not edamame. 1. I love green peas. 2. I hate edamame. So it really was no contest.
The dough turned out well and was pretty easy to roll out. Obviously nothing is the same baked as it is fried but I would make these again. The dough from The Vegan Lunchbox was so soft that after I rolled it out it kept ripping every time I tried to lift it up. In the end I had to give up on that dough recipe and use one from a different book. Even though the VWAV dough is baked it still is a little bit flaky like the fried ones are.
All in all it was a successful venture. I like that these freeze well as they would be a quick and easy snack.
