Oven baked samosa

I really like samosa, but they are deep fried and that's not healthy! I found some recipes online how to make oven baked samosa, I took bits and pieces of recipes and that's my version of oven baked samosa.

Ingredients (8 samosa)

2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon semolina flour
1 tablespoon oil

2 large potatoes
2 carrots
1 cup frozen peas
1 red chilli
1 onion
1/2 teaspoon curcumin powder
1/2 teaspoon masala powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
oil (1 tablespoon)

1 egg

Mix the ingredients for the dough and make the dough. Leave it aside for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds until they crack. Add onion and red chilli (you've cutted them before of course) and fry it until golden. Add curcumin powder and masala powder and mix. Add frozen peas and mix until tender. Add the potatoes and carrots cut in cubes that you boiled in water before. Mix for a few minutes.
Work the dough with a rolling pin. Make it thin and round shape. Cut it in half, do a cone and put the filling inside. When it's full close it. Do all the samosa and put them on a baking pan. With a brush cover the samosa with the egg you've mixed before. Bake in a preheated oven on 180°C for 20-30 minutes.
