Partner Event: Kitchen Rodeo #58: Samosa Pie with Nik Sharma
Saturday December 05 | 6:00PM - 7:00PM
In this rodeo, you'll learn to make one of Nik's favorite dishes from The Flavor Equation: Chickpea, Spinach and Potato "Samosa" Pie. From Nik:
"Samosas are individual hand pie–size creations that encase tasty fillings in an equally tasty crust. The choices for fillings are endless, including the popular spiced potatoes, spiced chickpeas, paneer, and ground lamb. I make this larger version that I’ve nicknamed the “samosa pie” whenever I want the flavor and texture of a samosa for dinner but I’m low on time. I’ve replaced the samosa pastry with store-bought phyllo sheets; they give the crust a delicate, paper-thin texture that crumbles with a crunch in every bite."
BONUS: We'll also be making Nik's signature Garam Masala spice blend -- featured in the Samosa Pie and a perfect pantry staple.
