  1. Cook the sweet potatoes
    Step 1:
    Boil or steam the sweet potato cubes until they are soft and tender. Drain and set aside.

    In a large mixing bowl, mash the cooked sweet potatoes. Add the cooked black beans, finely chopped onion, minced garlic, grated ginger, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala, chopped cilantro leaves, and lemon juice. Mix well to combine.
  3. Assemble the samosas
    Step 3:
    Take a samosa wrapper and fold it into a cone shape, sealing the edges with water. Fill the cone with the sweet potato and black bean filling. Apply water along the open edge of the cone and seal it to form a triangular samosa. Repeat the process with the remaining wrappers and filling.
