lazy cooks baked samosas

Hi...everyone...there is this wonderful event started by Nupur fried-to-favourite I'll keep my stories for another time...coz there is a storm brewing up..which means that soon..very soon I'm going to lose the net.Check out Nupur's page for the details...........I tried the baked samosa's out........ I agonized for days,bout how I was going to make the covering as fat free as possible....I think it worked out fine!Thanks Nupur.....I seriously would never have considered baking samosas!..........Here goes my version of the baked samosa...........the filling is -masala-potatoes....The cover/wrap is as follows
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ajwain(carom seeds)
2 tsp olive oil
cold water to knead the reqd
1.To the flour....add the salt,and add the oil and rub it into the mixture..try and get it to look like bread crumbs.....add the cold water and knead should be a fairly tight dough.
2.Let the dough rest for 1/2 an hour(prepare the filling),then break off walnut sized pcs of dough ,roll it between your palms to get a nice n round ball .......roll out  with a rolling pin into a circle  ,cut the circle into half put the filling in and pinch the sides together.
3.Brush olive oil on a baking tray and in a preheated oven,bake at 180degC for 20 mins,then brush the samosas with a little olive oil ,flip 'em over and bake for another 20 mins.
4.Serve hot with chutney or tomato sauce.

After sending these to a few friends for their input..the following points are to be noted
1.The wrap should be a little thicker.
2.The oil in the wrap could go up a bit and finally
3.The ajwain could be done without......this is optional
