What are samosas made of inside?

Lamb samosas are a modified take on a traditional fried South Asian pastry with a savory filling, including ingredients such as spiced potatoes, onions, and peas.   Since we used the spring roll wrappers we kept it simple due to size.  One thing I haven’t tried with these is to freeze them to reheat.  We never have any leftover to try!
