Scrumptious Samosa Potato Cakes

I LOVE Indian food and Samosas are right up there with my all-time favourites. They tick every box for me. This recipe is minus the pastry, but I promise you won't miss it. These scrumptious little gems are so tasty, and the spicy salad complements them perfectly. Healthy doesn't get any better!!


Potato Cakes

  • 1kg potatoes (I use Agrias)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion (diced finely)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 2-3 Tablespoons butter or Olivani
  • 2 Tablespoons coriander (chopped)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour

Tomato Cucumber Salad

  • 2 tomatoes (deseeded and diced)
  • 1/2 red onion (diced finely)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1-2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 Tablespoons coriander (chopped)
  • 1/2 red chilli (finely chopped, no seeds if you dont like it hot)
  • 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 120g bag salad leaves of your choice


  • Wash potatoes and put into pot salted water and bring to the boil. Peel them first if you prefer.
  • Boil for 20-25 minutes until tender.
  • Make the salad by combining all the ingredients in a bowl and toss well. Cover and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Remove potatoes from the heat and drain well. Mash them using the butter or Olivani leaving a few lumps for texture.
  • Fry the onions in the olive oil for 1-2 minutes until translucent.
  • Add the spices and fry for a minute, then add the peas. 
  • Add the onion mixture to the mashed potatoes.
  • Form into round patty shapes and dip both sides in the flour.
  • Heat oil in a large frypan.
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown and crunchy. Drain on a paper towel and serve with the yummy tomato cucumber salad.
  • You are seriously going to love this!!! Great as leftovers too!
