However, for you vegans, Okadoc has the perfect recipe for a gluten-free vegan samosa, that is not only great for Ramadan iftars but also all year round.

Gluten-free vegan samosa ingredients

  • Rice paper sheets
  • One medium potato, peeled and mashed
  • One small onion, finely chopped
  • One clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup peas and carrots
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp organic coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½-1 tsp curry powder
  • Salt and black pepper

Gluten-free Vegan Samosa Recipe

  • Prepare the filling. In a medium pot, heat coconut oil, then add the cumin, coriander and curry powder along with the onion.
  • Sautee until translucent before adding in the peas and carrots.
  • Stir on medium heat for a few more minutes. Add in the mashed potato and turmeric. Mix well and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Set aside the filling to cool.
  • Prepare the rice paper sheets with a large shallow tray with lukewarm water. Soak each sheet in the water on each side for a few seconds. Cut the sheet in half before the sheet goes completely soft.
  • Spoon the filling 1-2 tsp into the corner of each sheet and fold in alternating directions to make a triangle, then roll the loose edges to seal.
  • To cook, bake in a pre-heated oven or grill (180 C) until slightly golden and crispy. Before putting it into the oven, brush with a tiny bit of coconut oil to avoid sticking.
  • Your samosa is ready!

It is best for the samosa to be eaten immediately because if left too long, the rice paper will lose its crispness.
