These tasty chickpea-based balls, flavoured with garlic, chilli and lots of fresh coriander, make a delicious alternative to rice or potatoes. Cooked traditionally as an Indian dish the balls would be deep-fried, but here they are baked.

Samosas are traditionally deep-fried, but in this delicious version they are made with crunchy filo pastry, brushed with a little oil and baked. Serve with fruit chutney or yoghurt raita and a mixed salad for a casual, light lunch.

This is a tasty starter that can be found in every Indian restaurant around the West of Scotland. I’ve tried loads of recipes but this one really hits the spot in terms of authenticity in relation to the best of restaurant recipes. In Scotland we eat our spiced onions with Indian poppadoms but you could serve these as a chutney, side dish or dip.
