Oven Baked Samosas

Who said samosas should be only triangular in shape?

I love samosas, but try to avoid eating them, because of the fat content! These are mostly deep-fried!

 Then I got this brilliant idea of baking them  after watching a program on an Indian food channel. The recipe is quite easy and yields 8 wonderful , crispy  samosas in a new look!



For the covering/shell

Flour 3/4 cup
Salt 1/4 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Ajwain /carom seeds 1/2 tsp
Water to knead

For the filling

Boiled and mashed potatoes, about 3 medium size
Boiled peas, 1/2 cup
Chopped green chilly 1
Chopped green coriander 2 tbsp
Ginger grated , 1 tsp
Salt, red chilly powder, amchoor powder, garam masala and turmeric


Knead the dough and let it rest for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, take a pan , heat about 1 tbsp oil, add ginger, spices, and boiled potatoes and peas.
Adjust the seasoning. Sprinkle chopped chilly and coriander.
Let it cool.

Divide the dough into 8 balls.

Roll into oval shape, like a poori.
Place the filling in the centre.
Seal the opposite edges.

Arrange on a greased tray and bake in a pre heated oven at 200 degrees C.
Turn tray, after 10 minutes, lower the temp to 180 degree C and bake further 10 minutes.

Serve hot with ketchup or chutney of your choice.

Enjoy with a steaming cup of cardamom tea!


You can use spinach and feta cheese instead of peas and potatoes or cottage cheese and mint.
