Make Thanksgiving leftovers Indian! Go ahead and be “lazy.” Get pre-fab egg roll wrappers at the grocery store and skip making pastry. You can also use pre-fab pie crust, phyllo dough, or puff pastry! This is so fast and easy, you’ll have to tell all your friends.
Mix 3 Cups of left over veggies: Chopped green beans, sweet potatoes, corn, peas, mashed potatoes, carrots, etc. Stir in 2 tsp curry powder. Adjust the spice according to your taste.
Place 2 TBSP veggie filling on wrapper pastry (egg roll wrappers are about 3 inches square). Fold into a triangle and seal edge with a mixture of 1 egg beat with 2 TBSP water. Crimp edge down with a fork.
Brush samosas with a little peanut or vegetable oil. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 12-15 minutes, until crispy brown. Samosas can also be deep fried 3-5 minutes.
Serve with dipping sauce made from equal parts left over cranberry sauce and sauteed onions. Simply saute chopped yellow onion in butter until caramelized them stir in an equal amount of cranberry sauce.
These make a great dinner, appetizer, or hors devour for your holiday entertaining. Use vegan pastry and veggies for a vegan version.
