Gluten Free Samosas
« on: February 22, 2015, 08:45 PM »
Hi all

Have been asked to do some gluten free samosas for a coeliac for her 40th birthday party. Just wondering if anyone has done them before and what did you use as a flour substitute?

Cheers

MM

Mmm, struggling to help with this one.  How about using gluten free flour.  If in doubt, practice your onion bhaji skills  :)  They go down really well with those with gluten allergies  ;)
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

A quick google which you've probably already done, brought up this

The gluten free bit is in the green box at the end.

Very simple, buy some gluten free pastry.

Tecos £2.50


cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

Gav. Soy flour, rice flour, tapioca flour, potato flour. Sounds like a trip to the Wing Yip!  :)

Chewy that's a very good idea as essentially samosa dough is not far off a shortcrust pastry. I guess just scatter a few ajwain seeds over it before rolling out!

CH. I was thinking gluten free plain flour but apparently it's very fine like cornflour so thought it might "act" differently somehow.  Got a while yet to perfect a recipe. I've also been asked to do the curry for the party. I guess gluten free H4ppy naans might be tricky also?  :D

Hi
MM you may wish to consider besan flour for the samosa skins.

I thought that but would the stronger flavour make them taste odd? - Like bhajis! I might try a small batch and see.  :)

I tried using besan flour and it had very little stretch to it
Maybe I did it wrong
Would love to hear someone else's results

I think lack of stretch is going to be the case with all gluten free flours.
