                         -----CRUST-----
      1/2   c            Water
      1/3   c            Organic safflower oil
    1       pn           Salt
    3       c            Whole wheat flour
                         -----FILLING-----
    1       tb           Sesame oil
    1       bn           Green onion -- finely chopped
    3       md           Carrots -- diced
    1       lb           Fresh spinach
                         -- washed, dried & chopped
    1       pn           Salt
      1/4   ts           Curry powder
    1       tb           Tamari
      1/4   c            Water
    1       tb           Kudzu (Japanese arrowroot)
 
   Combine water, oil, and salt in a small saucepan and
   bring to a boil. Remove from heat and beat the mixture
   with a whisk until it has a milky appearance. Add to
   flour in a large bowl. Gently knead the dough just
   until mixed well. Form into a ball and let sit for 30
   minutes (or cover and place in a refrigerator until
   needed and then bring to room temperature.) For the
   filling: heat oil in a skillet. Saute onions and
   carrots for 1 minute. Sprinkle with salt and curry
   powder and add chopped spinach. Cover and steam over
   medium heat until spinach wilts and the carrots are
   tender, about 4 minutes. Season with tamari. Dissolve
   kudzu in 1/4 cup water, add to spinach mixture, and
   cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, to
   thicken and glaze. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide
   the dough in half and roll out until about 1/8 thick.
   Using a saucer or a small plate as a guide cut the
   dough into 4 circles. Place 2 Tbs. of filling in the
   middle of each circle. Fold over and pinch edge shut.
   Using a fork, poke a few holes in each samosa. Place
   on an oiled cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
   Delicious hot or cold.
