I would guess green peas. Also, why use a tortilla when samosa dough is so
easy to make? Don't forget to serve with chutney!

Ditto on the fresh/frozen peas. What is the green sauce they serve
with samosas called? The green part is some leaf that's been
blenderized and mixed into something white. That's all I can tell.
It doesn't taste like cilantro or mint, so I'm clueless.

The two green Indian sauces that I remember are Mint Chutney and Green
Chili Chutney.

Thanks, Jim. I swear it doesn't taste like mint or cilantro, but
googling samosas and green sauce - it's probably all three: mint,
cilantro and chili - in one sauce. I love the flavor!

Raita. Can involve grated cucumber with the excess moisture wrung
out, mint and cilantro. I've also had a Pommegranate version which
was quite different but nice.

from reading the recipe and the instructions it sounds like he used
the word "tortilla" to represent the samosa dough.
