Chicken and vegetable samosas with a twist

Chicken drumsticks were on the reduced section so I decided to make chicken and vegetable samosa’s but took a risk and used tortillas.So so tasty!!!
17oz (480g) chicken drumsticks

3 medium onions, diced

1 large carrot, grated

Handful of frozen peas

2 cloves garlic, minced

4tbsp veg oil 

1 tbsp Garam masala

1tsp ground cumin

1tsp ground coriander 

1tsp turmeric

1tsp curry powder

2 packs large tortilla wraps

Salt and pepper

1 egg, beaten
Preheat deep fat-fryer to 180c.
First off remove all the chicken from the bone and chop small. 

Add the oil and garlic to a large frying pan over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes to soften, add the spices to the oil and stir well, then in with the onions for 5-6 minutes while stirring until softened. Next in with the chicken, carrot and peas, stir everything together well and cook while stirring for a further 5-6 minutes then set aside to cool. 

Now for the tortillas you want to cut them out into rectangles about the width of three fingers and the full length or the tortillas but square the ends off (video in later post will show what I mean). 
TO SEE HOW TO FILL THE TORTILLAS AND MAKE THE SAMOSAS PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO IM POSTING AS ITS HARD TO EXPLAIN AND ITS EASY WHEN YOU WATCH IT BEING DONE. ONCE FILLED AND SEALED WITH EGG WASH, PLACE INTO THE FRYER AND COOK

​UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN (ABOUT 5-6 MINUTES). REMOVE THEN PLACE ON A WIRE RACK TO COOL OR KITCHEN PAPER.
For a vegetarian version (which I’ve done) just use 2 large potatoes grated.

Beef steak and peppercorn sauce

Checking the reduced section came up trumps for tea tonight! two 8oz sirloin steaks £4…. bargain! You could have cut this steak with a spoon.

2 steaks the cut of your choice (I used sirloin because it was reduced)

1/2 onion, diced

3oz mushrooms, diced

4tbsp double cream

2tbsp whole black peppercorns

1 pint of gravy made from granules

salt

knob of butter

2tbsp vegetable oil

 

Add oil and butter to a pan over a medium heat. Next add the onions, mushrooms along with a pinch of salt then fry for 4-5 minutes until soft. Pour in the gravy and stir well. Now grind the peppercorns but not into a dust try to just break them up then add almost all of them to the sauce leaving about 1/2tsp for the steak and stir well. Leave to simmer for 6-7 minutes. Season the steak with salt, pepper and oil on both sides. Put a frying pan over a high heat for a minute then add the steaks and sear on both sides for 1 minute. Turn the heat down to medium and cook the steak how you like yours (I did mine for 3 minutes on each side for medium) then leave to rest on a wire rack for 2 minutes. Just before serving add the cream to the sauce then stir well. Serve with anything you feel like I had chips.

*always look for fat marbling when choosing steak as it cooks down and doesn’t turn chewy*
