Baked Corn Pasta Samosa served with Olive Dip & Prune Lassi

Sunday, September 23, 2012 40 Comments

Its Del Monte carnival time. Keeping the need of frequent innovations and spicing up food, I hereby present one of my most popular platter that works well for any brunch or snacking. All, using Del Monte products as core ingredient.
***
Baked Pasta Samosa
Ingredients
Del Monte Lasagne Pasta (long; flat)
Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive Oil
For filling:
Del Monte whole Kernel Corn
Spring Onion (Finely chopped)
Green peas ( Parboiled)
ginger & garlic (grated)
Del Monte Mustard sauce (1 spoon)
Cornflour & dry fruits

Green Chillies finely chopped (Optional)
Grated Cheese (Optional)


Spices: Salt, Roasted cummin powder, Garam masala, dry mango powder, corriander powder

Step 1: Take a bowl and mix all filling ingredients and roll in a triangular shape with help of some Olive oil (any shape desired). 

Step 2: Take the Del Monte flat pasta, add it in salted boiling water and soak till it gets little smooth n flowy. Take it out from water and layered it around the filling (horizontally in triangular shape) as created in step 1. Brush up little with olive oil. Take a microwave bake dish with a parchment paper inside and Place the samosas carefully. Slightly pierce each of samosa on top with fork. Preheat microwave at min 425 degree and place  the dish inside and bake for 15-20 mins. Check the oven once after 10 mins. Serve hot with Del Monte Zingo or Twango sauce or the olive dip.

Olive Dip
Ingredients
1/2 cup milk
4 processed cheese slices or cubes
1/2 tbsp cornflour
3-4 chopped Del Monte olives
1 tbsp Basil paste (Optional)



Take a microwave safe bowl, add all the above, mix well and keep it in microwave for a minute. Take it out, stir well and microwave it for another 1 minute. Mix salt to taste and serve with a topping of basil leave. In case if you do not want to use basil or olive, do not add them. Just make your cheesy dip and once cooked, add Del Monte Zingo or Twango sauce in it to bring the variety.


Take a bowl, add the dip in it and keep it in a center of a large round plate. Keep the Samosas around the empty space of plate and serve. You can make three plates using different dips and serve.

Prune Lassi
Ingredients
Plain Yogurt
Crushed ice
Mint leaves


Take big bowl, add yogurt,prunes (without seeds) and crushed ice blend it to form a thin consistency. Now Pour in a tall glass,from slightly above the rim to bring the froth effect. Cut a round slice of Prune and slit it a bit to place atop the glass. Garnish the lassi (yogurt shake) with fresh mint leaves and serve.

  2. Super. Super. Very innovative. Never heard of Pasta samosa. You better go to the patent office and patent this. I am sure many resturants are going to "use" this recipe. To go with this samosa, prune lassi? Well. May be it is ok.

    1. Yes, Prune as I wanted to add a little pungent taste to otherwise salty n spicy samosa. I have not recommended any sugar intake in shake as I want that to be optional and as per individual choice.

      Another good pairing could be with white wine and it goes well with cheese, in case if anyone wants to add :)
