Spicy Curried Potato Pockets

I've been wanting to try making Baked Samosas for quite a while. I LOVE samosas, but have been trying to eat a little healthier, hence making them baked. So while this isn't really my attempt at Baked Samosas, they really are kinda similar.

Again, I wanted some spicy tidbits to go with my January Wine Tasting ~ Riesling. I was kinda thinking Green Chicken Curry Pockets... I picked up some ground chicken and everything. Then when I was ready to start, I realized that I had a potato peeled from earlier in the week that was kind of slated for baked samosas and that I should use it. Then I decided to just scrap the chicken part.

I don't really have a recipe. I was just winging this as I went.

I boiled some potatoes and set them aside to cool.

When they were cooled... I cut them into bite-sized pieces.

Then I drained & rinsed a 16oz can of chickpeas and added half to the potatoes.

I mashed the other half with a fork

Then I put it all into a hot skillet

And added some frozen peas

I had some Coconut Curry Thai Chicken Broth in the fridge, so I poured some into a bowl.

Added some Green Curry Paste.

And some Garam Masala and stirred it all up.

Then I poured it over the potato mixture... I think I sprinkled in a little turmeric too.

Ok... I guess I don't have pics of the dough part. I used prepared pie dough and cut 3-4 inch circles.

Then put about a tablespoon of filling in the center of the circle and fold dough in half, crimping the edges to seal.

Then I brushed them with an egg wash.

And into a 400F oven for about 10 minutes or until they are golden.
