Oven Baked Samosas


I love samosas. The first time I tried it was when my husband brought some home from work a couple of months ago. And oh boy, I immediately fell in love with them. The aroma of curry and other spices is just amazing to me. I love the flavors of potatoes and coriander seeds combined together, too. I was thinking of a "healthier" way to enjoy delicious samosas. And yes, I know, baked ones aren't as good as the fried ones, I'll admit. But these baked ones satisfied my samosa cravings last night. I ate these for dinner last night and still lost some weight overnight so I was glad. These are absolutely delicious and I thought the pie crust went quite well with the potato filling.

I did make some changes, like I do with most recipes I come across. I added more salt, pepper, curry powder, cumin, and coriander seeds. If you enjoy Indian spices as much as I do, don't be afraid to add a little extra.

I skipped the sauce but I am sure it's tasty. I had mine with sweet chili sauce. I'd love to learn how to make red chutney. But I just didn't have a good looking recipe on hand. Maybe next time.

Enjoy!

  17. I've made samosas before. So good. I also baked them, but I used phyllo dough. Probably a healthier version of a "crust" if you are looking for a way to decrease the calorie and fat content of the dish even more.
