Tamarind Sauce:


  1. For the samosas: Place the potatoes in a pot with cold water to cover. Bring to a simmer and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool a bit.
  2. While they're still warm, peel and mash the potatoes and season with salt. Mix in the lemon juice, granulated sugar, cumin, cayenne, Thai bird chiles, cilantro and peas.
  3. Place some potato filling in the center the wonton wrappers. Moisten the edges of the wrappers, then fold into triangles and press to seal.
  4. Fill a heavy saucepan or Dutch oven with 2 inches of oil and heat to 350 degrees F. Fry the samosas in batches until golden brown.
  5. For the tamarind sauce: In a bowl, mix together the tamarind paste, apple butter, lemon juice, brown sugar, cayenne and some salt. Serve with the samosas.
