2 large (sweet) potatoes, peeled and cut into little cubes
250 gram fresh green peas (100 gram shelled)
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 full ts garam masala
1 ts cumin
1/8 ts cayenne
1/2 ts seasalt
4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil

directions :
1. Make a dough.
Mix 2 cups of (spelt)flour, 1 ts salt and 3/4 cup coconut oil or butter until crumbly. Don't overmix! Wisk 1 egg with 3 tbsp of (sheeps)yoghurt until smooth, and pour over the dough. Fold and mix lightly and knead into a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film, and put it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. 
2. Make the filling.
Heat the oil, fry the onion, add the sweet potato and 1 cup of water. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add lemon juice, herbs, salt and some extra water if needed, and simmer for another 10 minutes, adding the peas during the last. The mixture shouldn't be too soggy. Remove from heat, stir in freshly chopped coriander. 
3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 
4. Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Take one, knead, roll out into a 20 cm circle. Cut in half. Make 16 semicircles.
5. Fold each semicircle and close it by pressing together the two straight sides. 
6. Fill each one with one full tbsp of filling, crimp down the edges with a fork.
7. Place samosa's on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and put them in the oven for about 25 minutes until golden brown.
8. Make the sauce.
