This recipe is from an Indian lady in our community who taught a few girls how to make Samosas. Can't get more authentic than that! The recipe is soooo good too!

Samosa Filling
Boil 2.2 pounds potatoes (6 or 7 potatoes), until cooked, cube and set aside
Next, Fry the following ingredients together.
In a wok add 2T any oil
1 ½ tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp turmeric powder
2T chopped green chilies
½ tsp salt
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp tandoori chicken masala or meat masala
2.2 lbs. boiled, chopped potatoes

Fry until cooked—about 5 minutes. Let cool, then you can put into the wrap. Place a spoonful of filling into samosa wrapper. Wrap samosas as follows (we used round, but this gives you an idea of how to do it).

Cooking instructions
Fry: Heat oil in a wok on Medium heat. Place samosas in pan. Constantly stir so they brown evenly until light golden brown. Take out, cool, eat.
Bake: Heat oven to 350. Put samosas on a baking sheet and spray with olive oil or cooking spray. Bake until light golden brown. 20-25 min.

Serve Samosas with Mint sauce (chutney).
