 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Pack Large    Egg Roll Wrappers
                         -----Filling-----
    6      Oz            Lean Beef Or Lamb -- finely ground
    1      Medium        Cooked Potato -- diced
      1/4  Cup           Green Peas -- cooked
    1      Medium        Onion -- grated
    1      Clove         Garlic -- crushed
      1/2  Inch Piece    Fresh Ginger -- grated
    2      Teaspoons     Curry Powder
      1/2  Tsp           Chilli Powder
      1/4  Tsp           Turmeric
    1      Tsp           Salt
      1/4  Tsp           Black Pepper
    2      Tbsp          Butter
    1      Tbsp          Lemon Juice
    1      Tbsp          Fresh Coriander, Chopped -- or mint
 
 Cover the egg roll wrappers with a damp cloth until needed.
 
 Mix the filling ingredients except the butter, lemon juice and chopped
 herbs and fry in the butter until just cooked through. Sprinkle on
 approximately 2 tablespoons of water and increase the heat until the
 liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice and
 herbs. Stir well and leave to cool.
 
 Cut the egg roll wrappers into 1 3/4 inch strips. To prepare the samosas
 using egg roll wrapper strips, turn one end over to make a triangular
 shaped pocket, then turn again in the opposite direction. Fill the cavity
 with a spoonful of the cooked filling and continue folding until the
 whole strip has been used and a triangular shaped pastry results. Seal
 the end with water or a paste made from flour and water.
 
 Heat oil for deep frying to fairly hot and fry the samosas, several at a
 time, until golden and crisp. Serve hot with a fresh mint chutney.
 
 Makes 36 samosas.
