Notes

  • Garam masala is a spice mixture that can be found in Indian grocery stores.
  • The spring roll sheets can be found in the frozen section at Asian markets. They come in different versions so look for the thinnest.
  • To bake instead of fry, brush each samosa with oil, lay them flat on baking sheet, and bake at 400°F for about 8 minutes, turning them over after 4 minutes.
