Ingredients

1
tablespoon
olive oil
1
medium onion, chopped
1 1/2
teaspoons
curry powder
Kosher salt and black pepper
2
cups
store-bought refrigerated mashed or frozen mashed potatoes, thawed (about 16 ounces)
1
10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
1
15-ounce package refrigerated piecrusts
1
jar mango chutney (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the curry powder, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the potatoes and peas.
  2. Unroll the piecrusts and cut each into 6 triangles. Place a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture in the center of each piece. Gather the corners of the dough and pinch to form a point. Pinch the seams to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  3. Bake the samosas until golden, 22 to 25 minutes. Serve with the mango chutney, if using.
