1 tbsp Lime juice (fresh) (for chutney)
1 tbsp Water (for chutney)
1 tsp Jalapeno pepper (finely chopped, for chutney)
1 tsp Garlic (for chutney)
1/2 tsp minced Ginger root (for chutney)
1 dash Salt (for chutney)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (divided, for samosas)
1/4 cup Yellow onion (finely chopped, for samosas)
2/3 cup grated Carrots (for samosas)
2/3 cup Frozen green peas (thawed, for samosas)
2 tsp Mustard seeds (for samosas)
1 1/2 tsp Garam masala (for samosas)
1/2 tsp Salt (for samosas)
1 potato Potato (, cooked, mashed, for samosas)
8 thin sheet(s) Phyllo dough (thawed)
3 spray (about 1/3 second) Olive oil cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare chutney, combine the chutney ingredients in a food processor; process 1 minute or until smooth. Spoon mixture into a bowl; cover and refrigerate.

To prepare samosas, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add carrot, and cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add peas, mustard seeds, garam masala, and salt; cover and cook 2 minutes. Stir in potatoes; remove from heat.

Working with 1 phyllo sheet at a time, cut each sheet lengthwise into 3 (3 x 14-inch) strips, and coat with cooking spray. (Cover remaining phyllo dough to keep from drying.) Spoon 1 tablespoon potato mixture onto 1 end of each strip. Fold 1 corner of phyllo dough over mixture, forming a triangle; keep folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Place triangles, seam sides down, on a baking sheet. Brush triangles with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.

Bake at 350° for 23 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature with chutney.
