Frozen Paratha Samosa


I always keep a packet of frozen paratha in my freezer. It comes in very handy when I am either busy or lazy.

The other day while chatting with a group of friends in a forum, one of the girl asked about a good way to use frozen paratha, and whether it could be turned into samosa.

I loved the idea and set off to check recipes online and found handful of them... looks like we are not the first one to think it that way! I like my version of samosa filling, using homemade Malaysian curry powder, so here it comes my version of frozen Paratha samosa!

Ingredients: (Yield 6-8)
3-4 Frozen Flaky paratha (I used Kawan brand)

2 Potatoes (about 300 gm)
1 medium size onion(chopped)
1/3 cup Sweet Pea/carrot (chopped)
2 tbsp Malaysian Curry Powder (or any curry powder)
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Sugar

1 egg yolk

Cook potato, skinned and cut it into pieces, chop the onion. In a cooking pan, add about 3-4 tbsp of oil, fry onion until its fragrance,  add curry powder, give a quick stir, add potato pieces, stir well and mash the potato pieces a little. Season with Soy Sauce, salt and sugar.

Add peas at the end, mix well and let cold.

This is the paratha I used...

Cut paratha into half, place filling at one side,and crimp like a pastry, use a fork to press the edges to strengthen the seal. 

Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).

Use a sharp knife to lightly make 3 strokes, briefly beat the egg yolk and brush the egg yolk over pastry.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Simple yet tasty!

  6. Hi Echo
    Are the paratha used straight in frozen form or wait till they are thawed?

  7. Hi Sarah,

    Half thawed, as long as it is fold-able and not too sticky yet.
