Equipment
  • baking sheet
  • baking paper
  • big bowl
  • table knife
  • chopping board
  • measuring spoons
  • dessert spoon
Ingredients
  • 4 tortilla wraps, halved
  • For the filling:
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 400g tin mixed beans
  • 400g tin kidney beans
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • For the paste (to seal the samosas):
  • 2 tablespoon plain flour
  • 2 tablespoon water

1

Turn the oven on to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 (or fan oven 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4). Using a piece of kitchen paper, rub a little oil over a baking tray.

2

Open the tins of beans, drain in a colander and rinse with cold water. Tip the beans into a big bowl. Using a pestle from a pestle and mortar, or the end of a rolling pin, bash the beans until they’re about half mashed – it’s good to have some whole beans.

3

Add the chilli power and sweet chilli sauce. Using your fingers tear the coriander into small pieces and add to the bowl.

4

In a small bowl mix together 2 tablespoons of flour with 2 tablespoons of water to make a paste. Cut 3 tortilla wraps in half using scissors, keeping your fingers away from the blades.

5

Take one tortilla half, fold over a third of the wrap to make a triangle use a brush to brush some flour paste onto the edge to seal.

6

Fold the other third over the top to make a cone. Brush a little of the flour paste along the edge of the cone and press to seal.

7

Spoon a little of the filling inside the cone, then repeat with the other 7 cones until you have used up all of the mixture. Brush a little flour paste inside the opening and press together to seal. Add more paste to the other edges if you need to, and press with your fingers to seal.

8

Put the samosas on the oiled baking tray and turn over to coat the samosas in a little oil. Cook for 10-12 minutes. Remember to leave to cool slightly before you eat them as they will be very hot!
