Cynic’s Environmentally-Friendly* Maharaja Samosas

How to recycle leftover food and give it a totally new look
Ingredients
Left over potato sabzi (dry) or mince (for you carnivores)
Papad (Not roasted)
Oil for frying
 
Preparation
Cut Papad into half
Moisten the papad
Put a little bit of the sabzi/mince
Wrap the moist papad around it
Deep fry
 
Voila.

For all you non-lazy folks who want to do the stuffing from scratch (bah) – here are a couple of stuffing recipes **
 
Vegetarian
Boiled and mashed potatoes
Add the following masalas – Chilli (Or chilli powder), Cumin (Jeera) powder, Dry Mango ( amchur) powder, Garam Masala, Roasted Coriander powder, Coriander, salt to taste
Optional add-ons – finely chopped onion, finely chopped garlic, boiled green peas
  
Non-vegetarian
Saute onions in oil
Add ginger-garlic paste
Add tomato puree
Add the minced meat
Garam masala + Salt + Chilli Powder + Turmeric + Coriander powder + Bay leaf + Cinnamon + Salt to taste 
Optional add-ons – boiled green peas

* How does this save the environment?
Well, when the cook needs to expend minimum energy AND recycle left over stuff, that’s going to result in one happy cook. Happy cook definitely is better for the environment than an unhappy one isn’t it?

**The interesting thing about these stuffing’s is they can also be converted into cutlets. Just add crumbled bread slice (without the crust) – so that it absorbs the extra moisture and provides binding and shallow fry it on a tawa.

Also please note that the recipe maker has managed to sneak in four recipes into one post. Energy conservation again!
