Curious about what is in an Indian cook’s pantry? I made a free printable just for you. If you are just diving into Indian cooking, this Indian pantry list will be helpful to you.

I once knew a woman from India who was a fabulous cook. She liked to take short cuts for everyday cooking. The one short cut I can still remember was using wonton and egg roll wrappers for dumplings instead of making the dough. She made some fantastic Indian Samosas using wonton wrappers and deep fried them. As your teeth broke through the crunchy outside, your tastebuds were met with a mix of hearty meat and savory spices. Sauces were served on the side for your dipping pleasure.
Today, I am sharing with you the samosa recipe as I remember it but baked instead of fried. These were fun to make with my daughter who was home visiting from college. She is the hand model in these pics. She has the tiniest hands.
Whenever I want that quintessential Indian taste to a recipe, I reach for a spice blend called Panch Phoran. It’s a pre-made mixture of common spices used in Indian food. I can usually find this in an Indian store but if not, it’s available online. There’s a link to it in the recipe card.
