  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 5 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed


  • Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, cumin, and garam masala and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the mashed potatoes, peas, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and heat through for another 2 minutes. 
  • Unroll the phyllo dough and cover with a damp towel. Peel off one or two sheets and keep the remaining dough covered.
  • Lay the sheets flat and cut into thirds lengthwise. Lightly brush them with olive oil. Place 2 Tbsp of the filling at the end of the strip. Take the left corner and fold diagonally to the right. Continue folding making triangles until you reach the end. (Just like folding a flag).
  • Brush the entire outside of the triangle with olive oil and seal it.
  • Air Fry for approximately 10 minutes at 320 degrees or until golden and crisp, checking after 5 minutes and turning if necessary. 
  • Serve warm with dipping sauce or with chopped cilantro and enjoy!
