An aloo pie is a fried dumpling popular in the Cuisine of Trinidad and Tobago.[1] It is a soft, fried pastry made from flour and water, and filled with boiled, spiced and mashed potatoes (aloo being the Hindi word for "potato") and other vegetables like green peas or chana dal (split chickpeas without their seedcoat). Its shape is similar to a calzone, and it is usually larger than a samosa, approximately five inches (12.7 cm) long.[2] It is usually ordered with a sweet-and-sour-type Indian dipping sauce known as "imli ki chutney".
