Name That Gluten Free Recipe

Gluten Free Simply Samosas Recipe

I need your help! I created this pretty fab gluten free recipe but I just don’t know what to name it! Most of us can just make a recipe and call it “dinner”, no such luck for a recipe developer and food blogger.

This is where you and your help come in – I am having a contest – whoever comes up with the best name for this recipe will win a case of Chebe Garlic-Onion Breadstick Mix!

First let me tell you a little about the recipe. I started out making a filling of ground chicken, onions, carrots, curry powder, mango chutney (I made mine using my homemade mango chutney but store bought is just fine) and coconut milk. Then I used Chebe Garlic-Onion Breadstick Mix to make a pastry. I added some more garlic and some ground cumin to give it the flavor of the flat Indian bread called “naan”. I stuffed the filling into the pastry, baked it up and also made a quick riata (and Indian condiment made with yogurt, cucumbers and mint).

The result is a tasty little gluten free (and dairy free) pastry with all the flavors of an Indian meal, all wrapped up in a little package.

I think that if you want to introduce children to more exotic flavors in their dining experiences, this is a good way to start. The curry filling is flavorful but not spicy (although if you want more heat, you could always just add more curry powder), there is a touch of sweetness in the filling from the carrots and raisins (in the chutney) and they are just plain fun to eat! And you know, Indian food is SO popular these days!

I love everything about this recipe except one thing – I couldn’t figure out an appropriate name!

So here’s the challenge – read through the recipe and come up with a fun, creative, clever name for it.

You can enter as many as 10 names if you like but they all have to be different and submitted in individual comments.

You have until Monday, June 4th, midnight (EST) to enter in your name(s). The next day, I will pick a winner and officially change the name of this recipe. The winner will be announced in this post plus I will send them an email.

This isn’t random or computer generated! I am picking the name I like best! Flattery will not help, but it won’t hurt either. :)

The winner will receive a case (that is 8 boxes) of Chebe Garlic-Onion Breadstick Mix. I will send you an email to get your shipping address.

I can only ship to an address in the United States. If you live in another country, you can go ahead and enter, but you need to provide me with a U.S. shipping address.

For all the official rules, go here.

So, what would you name this gluten free recipe?

UPDATE!  Thank you to everyone who entered such fun, creative names.  Picking a winner was HARD!!!   So (drum roll please) the winning name for this recipe is…Simply Samosas submitted by Tina D.  Congratulations Tina, you have just won a whole case of Chebe Breadstick Mix, enjoy!

Gluten Free Simply Samosas Recipe

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Asian
Servings: 4 Servings
Calories: 519kcal
Author: Carol Kicinski

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil – use divided
  • ½ cup finely diced carrots (1 carrot)
  • ½ cup finely diced onion (1/4 of a medium sized onion)
  • ¾ pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt plus more for the pastry
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder (more if you want it spicy)
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup mango chutney (with raisins)
  • 1 box Chebe Garlic-Onion Breadsticks Mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic , finely minced or grated
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ seedless cucumber
  • 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt (non-fat, low-fat, regular or dairy free)
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves , minced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet with a lid over medium heat. Add the carrots and onion and cook until the onions start to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken, 1 teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper and the curry powder; raise the heat to medium-high and cook, breaking up the chicken with a spatula or potato masher, until no longer pink, 3-4 minutes. Add the coconut milk and chutney, stir to combine, lower the heat back to medium, put the lid on the pan and cook until the liquid is absorbed and the carrots are fork tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly while making the dough.
  • Put the Chebe Garlic-Onion Breadsticks Mix in a mixing bowl, add 2 eggs, the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (liquefied), ¼ cup of water, garlic and ground cumin and stir to combine. The mixture will be lumpy. Dump the mixture onto a clean work surface and knead by hand until the dough is smooth. Divide into 4 equal sized pieces. Place a piece of waxed or parchment paper on a flat surface, roll one dough portion into a ball, top with another piece of waxed or parchment paper and roll into a 7-inch circle. Lift the top piece of paper from the dough, place ¼ of the chicken mixture on the bottom half of the dough circle, leaving a ½ inch border. Fold the dough over the filling forming a half circle, press the edges together and crimp with the tines of a fork. Using the bottom piece of paper to help you, gently flip the pastry into one hand then place it flat (un-crimped) side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  • Beat the remaining egg with 1 teaspoon water and brush on top of the pastries. Sprinkle with a little salt and bake for 40 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
  • While the pastries are baking, make the riata. Peel the cucumber and grate it into a paper or kitchen towel. Squeeze out the excess liquid and place in a mixing bowl. Add the yogurt and mint leaves and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

I’ve only bought their hamburger bun mix before, and the texture is “stretchy” enough that I can imagine the breadstick mix works SO well for the pastry here. Great idea and super-creative recipe!

    I suggest calling them gluten-free samosas – lets readers know they are GF and also the Indian flavors are identified right away.
    I am looking forward to trying this recipe – do you have any suggestions for making them egg free?
    Thank you and have fun with the contest!

    Dear Carol,

    I look forward to your emails and trying your recipes. I have all your cookbooks and I love your flour blend. It makes THE BEST banana bread ever. I adapted my grandmother’s recipe using your flour and no one can tell it is gluten free!

    As for your new recipe, I cannot wait to try it. I would name it SIMPLY SAMOSAS. I love the name of your website “Simply Gluten-Free”, so it seems fitting that you would have the name “Simply” in it. Based on the reading of the recipe, it certainly could be considered a samosa and also, it looks like the recipe could be adapted to add whatever ingredients you would like in your Samosa, including potatoes and peas.

In Durban South Africa, they have a dish called “Bunny Chow” which is bread stuffed with curry. While staying with us here in the USA she yearned for her Mom’s Bunny Chow. This sounds like a GF Dream! Thank you!!
