What To Add To Mexican Samosa?
Now you all know how this samosa recipe differs from the traditional one. The filling is all that changes everything. Hence, the primary focus will be on the filling.
If you don’t know already, the filling can be versatile, just like the recipe. Meaning you can add any vegetables or ingredients to the samosa. It’s your choice entirely.
Since the filling will be Mexican, it is recommended to use beans and corn as it is commonly used in Mexican cuisine. You can also use jalapenos, olives, boiled potatoes, boiled kidney beans, onion, tomatoes, carrots, capsicum, coriander, etc. Some people use paneer, spinach, chickpea, and feta cheese in the filling. Mushrooms can be used, but it is not common in Mexican food. Plus, it may not taste well with the ingredients. So we won’t recommend adding that.
If you have tried a Mexican burrito before, you might be aware of the use of cooked rice. You can use cooked rice here as well if you wish. However, that is entirely optional.
You can use minced meat or chicken, lamb, fish, prawns/shrimp to indulge more with this recipe. Adjust the spices accordingly.
Cheese can be omitted as well. Or you can add any cheese like parmesan or Mexican to the filling.
Spices For The Filling
For spices, you can add a Mexican seasoning to the filling if it is available. If not, then you can make that home. Blend chilli powder, ground cumin, dried oregano, sea salt, black pepper, ground paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and crushed red pepper flakes to make your Mexican seasoning. (Or refer to this recipe for the Mexican chaat masala).
You can add spices of your choice too. Chilli powder, chilli flakes, paprika, oregano, and salt are the go-to spices for this.
We have shown the sauce to serve with these samosas; however, if you don’t want that, you get a few more options.
The typical sauce/dip for this will be ketchup or chutney. But since this is half Mexican dish, salsa will be good too. Even guacamole or cheese dip will be great for the same.
- You can add brown sugar to the filling for sweetness.
- If you do not have time to make the dough and roll it for the samosa, use tortilla/roti.
- Please ensure the samosas are not too dry before frying them, or they may break, and the filling will come out.
- You can bake the samosas in an air-fryer or oven if you do not want to fry them deeply. It will be a healthier option.
- Squeeze lime/lemon juice in the filling for a better taste.
