Samosas with Pâté of sardine with red Pepper in brandy
Recipe for 4 to 6 adults

Peel 150 gr of potatoes, boil and drain. Wrap one garlic bulb in tinfoil. Place in the oven at 180ºC for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven, unwrap the garlic bulb and cut the ends of the garlic cloves. Squeeze as a tube and you will obtain a brownish paste with a delicate flavour which results from this slow cooking process. Mash the potatoes and add the puree of baked garlic and 120 ml of olive oil. When it becomes creamy, finally add the pâté of sardine with red pepper (1 can) and 60 gr of chopped parsley. Leave to cool. Cut the samosa dough in rectangular strips of de 6×25, place a teaspoon with the filling and fold triangularly as a samosa. Fry in oil at 180ºC or, if you prefer, place in the oven at 180ºC brushed with melted butter.
