In a large bowl, mix all filling ingredients including cheeses, vegetables and spices.


Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

In a medium bowl, combine flours, salt and oil. Mix until oil is evenly distributed. Add water and knead for 2–3 minutes or until dough is smooth.

Divide dough into four pieces and roll each into a smooth ball. Form each ball into a flat disc. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll disc into a thin patty of 8-inch (20 cm) in diameter. Cut patty in half.


Fold patty in half to make a cone shape. Brush inside of cut edges with water and press to seal.

Put 2 tbsp (30 mL) of filling into cone. Brush last inside edge with water and press to seal. Brush butter on each side of samosa and then place it on a baking sheet. Repeat process to make 7 more samosas.

Bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown.


Note: Serve samosas with a mint chutney dip.
