This recipe was originally designed to feature local Colorado product Elevation Vindaloo Ketchup, which is made with Savory's Vindaloo. This special ketchup can be purchased at several Colorado Savory Spice locations. You can use Elevation Vindaloo Ketchup in place of regular ketchup and leave out the Vindaloo seasoning in the recipe.

*You can use homemade pie dough, but the refrigerated store-bought version works great for this recipe and typically comes with 2 pie crusts to a box.


For samosas: Cover potatoes with cold water, bring to a boil, simmer until tender then drain and set aside. Toast Bengal Bay in a small skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 3 min. Transfer to a spice grinder and grind into a fine powder. Combine boiled potatoes with ground Bengal Bay, peas, ketchup, Vindaloo, pickles, mango powder, and salt & pepper to taste. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll out each pie crust into a rough rectangle about 1/8-inch thick. Cut each into about 7 (3-inch) to 9 (4-inch) squares. Place 1 to 2 tsp. potato filling in the middle of each square. Lightly brush edges of squares with wet fingers. Fold filled squares into a triangle shape and press edges to seal. Press sealed edges again with tines of a fork. Placed filled samosas on parchment-lined baking sheets. Whisk egg and milk together and brush mixture over each samosa. Bake for 10 min. then reduce oven to 375 degrees and bake 15 to 20 more min. until golden.

For sauce: Blend ingredients together and serve as a dip with warm samosas.


These samosas freeze well. Just allow to defrost slightly before baking. They may take longer to warm through and turn golden if baking from frozen.
