Mix the flour with
the oil and 1/2 cup of water and knead this to a dough. Add Water
or flour if needed. Roll it out and cut it into 12 circles. Put the
lamb with the spices and 2 cups of water, bring this to the boil and
cook for approximately half an hour until the liquid has evaporated.
Allow the mixture to cool down. Distribute it over the dough circles
and close them (brush the sides with a little water, to make them stick).
Deep fry the samosas 4 minutes at 170 degrees
Celsius. Turn them halfway.
Luqmi comes from the
Arab word Luqma, which means "piece".
On the 8th of
April, we may dedicate

produced pesticides, had a leak and the gas killed thousands of people.
Perhaps a good moment to think about what ingredients we find acceptable
to use for our food. Click on culinary
