  • 3 Cut Da Carb flatbreads cut into 12 even strips (about 3" wide each)
  • 1 small head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1 lb 16 oz ground lamb
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ghee or butter
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced
  • 1 green chili chopped (seeds removed if you prefer less heat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil


  • Place the cauliflower florets in Instant Pot with 1/2 cup of water and cook on high pressure for three minutes. Allow to slow release and then drain. If you don't have an Instant Pot, fill a large pot with water 3/4 full, and bring to a boil. Add cauliflower florets and boil until very tender - 10 minutes. Drain.
  • Using a potato masher, mash the cauliflower in a large bowl until just barely chunky, set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add ghee (or butter). When melted, add red onion, garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion has softened. About 5 - 7 minutes.
  • Add ground lamb and break up the meat so it cooks evenly. Saute for 2 - 3 minutes and reduce heat to medium.
  • Add spices and continue cooking until lamb is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  • Turn the heat off and add the mashed cauliflower to the pan. Mix to combine.
  • Add chopped cilantro and mix.
  • Fold the Cut Da Carb wraps to create a pocket (see video).
  • Fill the pocket with 1 - 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture. You don't want to overfill the pocket, but fill it so there is no extra room.
  • Fold the triangle as demonstrated in the video and place on a platter, seam side down.
  • Repeat with remaining Cut Da Carb wraps and filling.
  • Heat avocado oil in a clean skillet over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, place samosas seam side down in the skillet.
  • Allow to pan fry for 3 - 4 minutes until golden brown and "sealed."
  • Flip and cook for another 3 - 4 minutes until the other side is golden brown.
  • Top with some additional chopped cilantro and enjoy!
