Wooldridge Creek Vineyard & Winery Squash and Mango Samosas

Squash and Mango Samosas

 

1 package (17.3 ounces) Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed

2 cups squash puree (either canned or oven roast a fresh squash and mash)

1 cup mango salsa

1 teaspoon curry powder

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

zest of one lime

egg

1 tablespoon water

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheets into 2(12-inch) squares.  Cut each into 6 (about 3-inch) squares, making 12 in all.  Coarsely mash the squash, salsa, curry powder, cilantro and lime zest in a medium bowl.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Divide the squash mixture among the pastry squares.  Brush the edges of the pastry squares with the egg mixture.  Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and crimp with a fork to seal.  Brush the filled pastries with the egg mixture.  Place the filled pastries onto 2 baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Serve with additional salsa or better yet your favorite chutney and yogurt if desired.
