I made some yummy little samosas to share and I think you’re gonna love them. These happened to be inspired by my little brother Brock, or at least that’s why I made them. Brock is like no one else on the planet, and actually we’re a little worried about the kid. He’s not someone who can really be described, you just have to meet him to understand. Brock: The Experience.
He just turned twelve and we’re all waiting to see what stage he’s hit now and what thing he’ll be trying to make or learn to do next. His recent thing has been Parkour, not a great idea. If you don’t know what that is don’t feel bad, I still don’t quite get it. Basically, it’s a term given to the art of a bunch of teenage boys trying to kill themselves in a way that looks cool. I’m a little fuzzy on details but it seems baggy sweat pants are a requirement for optimum stupidity.
Okay, I’ll admit that Parkour is actually pretty cool when done by people who are in shape and have practiced a lot, and aren’t jumping over everything inside your house. It’s actually pretty hard to stop watching. But that’s just one example of Brock’s fads. Sometimes his ideas are more eccentric than others. He’ll often try to coerce a sidekick into his plan and everyone who lives with him has learned that you have to weigh the risk of saying yes to his current project against the annoyance of him bugging you because you say no.
That’s why when he asked me to make hot pockets, something that he has apparently heard referenced on funny youtube videos and wanted to try, I thought it might not be such a bad idea. Maybe I was glad that he didn’t want me to tie him up and attempt a full Houdini act. Anyway, He wanted to make pizza hot pockets and, being a preteen boy, I knew his attention span would only last for about 5 pockets and then I could use the rest of the dough for something more fun, win, win.
So, I basically just said all of that to explain why these aren’t exactly traditional samosas. Usually Indian samosas are filled with potatoes and peas instead of chicken and peas, and they are normally fried not baked. I thought chicken would make them a little heartier than potatoes and baking them makes them a little lighter even though they would be amazing fried. This pastry recipe also made some killer hot pockets when stuffed with pizza sauce, sausage, and mozzarella.
