Preparing for a Rummage Sale sponsored by our church two Saturdays ago caused our whole family to search for books, clothes, CDs, kitchenwares, etc. from the bookshelves, closet and wherever. Doing so brought to my attention a recipe book given to me as a birthday gift by my youngest daughter, Ana Cristina, a few years back. It's a Del Monte Kitchenomics Cookbook Volume III issue in celebration of their 20 years of creative cooking. Page 64 of the cookbook features Samosas, a dish my husband and I ordered when we went out for a family dinner at Banana Leaf last Christmas season. I mention this in my post entitled, New Year Greetings from my Family to Yours.

My Del Monte Kitchenomics Cookbook
In my excitement to try it, I immediately bookmarked the recipe and prepared the following ingredients:

8 pc large square lumpia wrappers, each piece cut lengthwise into 4

1 pc medium onion, chopped
350 gms ground pork (but I substituted chicken)
1 pc medium carrot, cut into small cubes
1 pc small singkamas, cut into small cubes
1/4 tsp curry powder (I love the smell of cumin so I also added a pinch)
2 stalks green onions, chopped
1 pouch Del Monte hot and spicy pizza sauce (I just used Tomato Sauce because my husband doesn't like hot dishes)

1. Filling: Saute onion and chicken. Cook for 5 minutes. Add 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 tsp iodized fine salt, carrot, singkamas, curry powder and cumin. Cook for 8 minutes with constant stirring.                                                  

2. Add Del Monte Pizza Sauce and green onions. 
  3. Cook for 2 minutes. Wrap every 1/2 tbsp of  mixture   in lumpia wrapper and fold to form triangles. 
 4. Fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  Well, this was another hit as my husband said "Purrr-fect!"
