If you’re looking for a simple recipe with huge flavors, you’ve found the right one. This is so simple to make and only requires a few ingredients. The beans give it a strong, earthy flavor while the samosa spice, aroma and taste to the soup. I haven’t masted the art of making samosa so I used a family favorite store-brought frozen cocktail samosa.
- 1 tbps canola oil
- 3/4 cup dried dal beans
- 8 cups water
- 2 tbps canola oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 cup oil
- 26 bite-size/cocktail samosas
- Soak the beans in water, for a few hours or overnight. But if your stomach can handle it, it’s not necessary. Throw away the soaked bean water and rinse before cooking.
- Take the beans and 5 cups water into a medium-big pan, and boil over medium-high heat. Salt and cover. As it boils, stir occasionally and gradually add water to desired consistency. Boil for 20-25 minutes.
- In a skillet, put the oil and onion on medium high heat. Sweat the onion until it becomes slightly translucent. Then add the garlic until everything becomes golden brown.
- Add onion and garlic into the bean soup and let it simmer for 1 minute. Add black pepper.
- Samosas don’t need to be deep fried, as long as there’s enough oil covering half, you can stir them occasionally to get all sides golden brown.
- In a bowl, server soup with whole or cut pieces of samosa, add cooked white rice if desired, garnish with cilantro or chopped green onion.
