3. Combine mashed potatoes, pea, corn, shallots and cumin and season with salt & pepper.
4. Roll out samosa dough into a large square or rectangle. Cut into 4-inch by 4-inch squares.
5. Place 2 tbsp of the potato mixture into the centre of each square. Fold dough in half over potatoes pressing down to seal edges into a triangular shape .
6. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat; add oil.
7. Pan fry the samosas in batches, turning half way through cooking until golden on both sides , approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Serve immediately .

• Serve with an Indian inspired yogurt dip or your favourite dipping sauce.
