This is both a family favorite and a boon of convenience for postpartum moms. Picture it: you're tired because you've been up most of the night, you have a nursing baby in one arm and a warm samosa in the other hand.
Yes, there is definitely some work involved in making hand pies, but once they're formed, freeze them uncooked on a cookie sheet and then transfer them all to a freezer bag to quickly warm up in the oven as needed. Or better yet, have your friend or postpartum doula prepare them for you 😊
And no need to limit yourself to samosas. This is a nice tender, but sturdy and easy to work with dough that you could have ready and waiting in the fridge to stuff with last night's leftovers, ham & cheese, your own creative (and healthy) pizza pocket mixture, balsamic roasted veggies... how many delicious combinations can you come up with? Please send them my way - me and my kids want to try them!
