These Chickpea, Potato and Mango Chutney Filo Pastry Pie were very filling, but like any good samosa it needs minty or coriander chutney or a raita of sorts to accompany it. I made a simple home-made minty tomato salad with it, which worked really well.
The prompt for today was make/eat something inspired by a book or movie. One movie that I really, really like that takes me a roller coaster of emotions was Monsoon Wedding by Mira Nair.
So the idea was to make something Anglo -Indian either a South Asian snack like samosa or with a fruit from the Indian sub-Continent like mangoes (loyal readers remember mangocheeks!). I couldn't remember top of my head if there was a samosa eating scene in the movie, or even a scene about mangoes maybe... but there were plenty of edible flowers throughout the movie and more specifically marigolds (sadly not featured in the recipe here, though I did have some in the garden).
