Samosa Calzones

Every time I make samosas - which I do frequently for parties and stuff - I always think about how good it would be to have one huge samosa for a meal. This was my opportunity!

The filling:

• about 6 smallish yellow potatoes, diced and boiled until just cooked
• 1/2 a red onion, clopped
• about 1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
• 1/2 cup edamame
• 3 cloves of garlic
• 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
• other spices: ground cumin, coriander, cayenne - all to taste

The dough:

• prepared pizza dough!

After boiling the potatoes, I sauteed the onion and cumin seeds in a little oil then added potatoes, edamame, garlic and spices. When almost fully cooked (about 15 minutes), I added the cilantro. The dough was divided into 4, each rolled out, spread with filling and sealed, with a little canola oil drizzled on top. They cooked in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

And now, obligatory food porn!

Great idea with the samaso calzone. Yum! Your camera takes amazing photos!

Lasagna or manicotti would be great - i make these all the time myself but always love them eating them again.
