Vegetable Samosa Tarts

I still don't have much of an appetite, but certain things I feel like I can eat....and this is one! I hope I keep this loss of appetite up enough to lose another 10 pounds! lol

Now, don't worry, I am not doing too much. I'm not doing a whole lot at all. Actually, besides taking a few photos from HS and snapping pics of them to load up on facebook, this was all I did today....besides rest. A girl does have to eat you know!

For Taste & Create I was paired up with Arundathi of My Food Blog. She has so many recipes I want to try! She has made so many breads and it inspires me to want to make my own as soon as I can! I did make her Dutch Babies, but did so under the influence of pain meds and forgot to add the milk. Needless to say, that was a flop. Other recipes of hers that have caught my eye are her Jalapeno Pretzels, Nutella Brownies and Pesto and Garlic Bread!


I call these Vegetable Samosa Tarts. The recipe can be found on Arundathi's post. She had made samosas but also made tarts with what was left of her dough. I had to do a little improvising because I didn't have the mango powder (used garam masala, curry, cumin, ginger to my taste) and I only could find frozen peas & carrots in the fridge. I served these with the Tomato Chutney one of our Indian students made for me (and I totally love!!!). I went with the tarts to save myself too much arm work in rolling dough. It was easier to take a ball of dough, drop it in the tart pan and use my little pampered chef tart shaper to make a tart. Little effort at all!

Thanks again to Nicole of Taste & Create for hosting this awesome event. It is one I hope to always participate in!
