Experiment: Baked Wonton Samosas
So I decided to use the wonton wrappers as a time-saving samosa covering, and decided to bake them because I'm feeling pious today :)
Here's the recipe for the Potato-Pea filling:
1. Saute onions and ginger-garlic paste in a pan.
2. Add salt, turmeric, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala, chili powder (feel free to use whichever spices you have on hand) and stir for a minute.
3. Add frozen peas and cubes of boiled potato and stir till peas are cooked (this takes very little time). There, the filling is ready.
My wonton wrappers were little squares so I just folded them on the diagonal with a bit of filling tucked inside. Not very authentic-looking but oh well...
Finally, spray oil onto a baking sheet and bake these for about 15 minutes (turning once half-way through the cooking time) at 375 deg F. Play it by ear; the baking time is approximate.
The results were not bad for an experiment. I give it one thumbs up!
