I don’t know about you, but I am right in love with the Joseph Joseph line of cooking and baking utensil products. They are always such fun and in such brilliant colours! I could spend hours looking at all of the line which is available at our local Garden centre, and often do to Todd’s chagrin, but then . . . I don’t complain when he spends hours looking at man stuff . . . ok . . . so maybe I do a little bit . . .
This brightly coloured set comprises four highly practical baking items from Joseph Joseph’s award-winning kitchen utensil range. Finished in a striking pink and aubergine colourway, the set comes presented in a stylish gift box.
Included in the set are a very uniquely elevated pastry brush and spatula, which have weighted handles and really cool integrated tool rests, which help to keep the mess up off the table.
There is also an unusually shaped one hour baking timer, in bright pink, which I found really easy to use.
The thing I loved the most though, is this fabulous rolling pin. Made of beech it is adjustable, with three sets of removable discs which allow you to roll out your pastries, biscuits and other doughs to three different heights, with the measurements showing in both inches and millimeters!
This allows you to roll things out to an exactness which removes any guesswork! I found the discs really easy to change as they are quite simply held in place with a kind of screw thingie. As easy to use as nuts and bolts!
There are other measurements printed on the actual rolling pin as well, which easily help you to measure out whatever it is you are rolling, eg 12″ round, 15″ rectangle, etc. These are also in both measurements. I love this rolling pin . . . I absolutely love it.
Of course I could not wait to put it all to good use.
I just adore Samosas. When my oldest son was at Uni, I often would stop at the local market on a Saturday morning and pick up some samosas for us to share. He loves them too. I would ring the doorbell to his flat and when he answered the intercom, I would reply . . . “Speedy Samosa Delivery!” He never failed to let me in. Samosas are Indian snack food/appetisers . . . kind of like little curry turnovers. You can get veggie ones, or lamb ones. (My friend Joy makes fabulous lamb ones!) Most usually they are fried. Beautifully spiced and flavoured.
It isn’t much of a stretch really to incorporate those flavours into a tasty pie. I had some leftover roasted chicken that needed using up and I thought a chicken pie would be nice . . . and then I thought, why not a Samosa pie. Win/win!
The crust is just lightly spiced with a bit of cumin and uses butter, so it’s rich and beautifully coloured. Sturdy enough to stand up to the hearty filling, and yet flake, flake, flaky!
Beautifully flavoured with a tasty mix of aromatics and spice . . . coriander, ginger, fennel, cumin, mustard, fenugreek, tumeric (for colour) and cayenne for some heat, this tasty pie pleases on many levels, both sight, smell and taste . . . and with picnic season having arrived it would make a great pie to take on a picnic. I served it simply . . . with some salad and mango chutney on the side. Deeeeeeeee-licious!
Your favourite Indian snack in a dinner pie! Couldn’t be easier or tastier!
For the pastry:
Cut into wedges to serve. Mango chutney is a good go-with!
I am going to be really honest here. I don’t remember who sent me this set. It arrived while I was away and the Toddster didn’t keep any of the paperwork for me. (Men!) So whoever you were, thanks so much. I really, really love this set!
Joseph Joseph products are available at all good home, kitchen and gift shops here in the UK, as well as through their online shop at Joseph Joseph.com.
This delightful four piece baking set retails for £40 on their site, but I have seen it elsewhere for as little as £32. I just love it and I know that you would too!
