How To Make Homemade Coconut Milk from Real Coconuts.
You guys, you guys!
I just have to first say that I am writing this from Florida while sitting outside! Unfortunately, it’s not sunny yet, but the sun is trying to peek through the dark rain clouds and I really hope it does.
You see, I really hate the rain. I hate rain more than any other type of weather, it just depresses me. I think I need to accept it though because apparently it is rainy season here in florida.
Oh well, if there is one good thing that comes from rain it is shopping.
Lots and lots of shopping, which my grandma is a pro at. Like a top of the line pro, so I know we are going to have fun rain or shine.
Anyway, I’ll try to keep you updated on the happenings of my trip as they happen, but for now, let’s just talk about these cute little triangular Samosas.
These are not your typical Indian Samosas. Instead of the traditional Indian potato filling, I swapped in a whole bunch of summer veggies. And some goat cheese, because I thought, why the heck not, I mean goat cheese goes with these flavors.
And let’s be honest, a little goat cheese can never, ever hurt.
You know my take on cheese. Cheese, especially goat cheese, is only going to make samosas better!.
So the filling is basically just a whole bunch of veggies mixed with indian spices and a little curry powder. I just thought they sounded really good together.
Samosas are all about the pastry around the filling.
A lot of people make a homemade pastry for their samosas that I am sure is absolutely amazing. But unfortunately, I did not do enough research on these and never read about the homemade pastry dough until AFTER I had already made them.
It’s ok though because I used phyllo dough, which you really can’t go wrong with. Plus it makes this meal easier to handle for a faster summertime version.
For the chutney, I kept it really simple. Instead of an all mint or cilantro chutney I added a ton of basil and a sweet peach.
I know it may sound a little odd, but I promise it’s so good and perfect for eating with these samosas. Also, it’s just that time of year when I start adding basil and peach to almost everything I make.
Gotta eat um up while you can!
