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!
