A healthier way to have your favorite snack - Samosa. Baking samosas is a healthy alternative to deep frying them (the traditional way). This is a tried and tested recipe & I've found them to be as tasty as the regular ones.

Another quick and easy way to make baked samosas is to use Pate Brisee, but it does contain butter, but is so flakey and tasy.  It is still healthier than deep fried. You can buy the Pate Brisse/puff pastry sheets or easily make your own in the food processor.  I will share a wonderful James Beard Cuisart recipe if any are interested. Thank you for this great recipe Snigdha , and also thanks for inviting me to iFood!  I love this site and must get a photo and do some video Thai cooking clips!

I am going to try this baked samosas. It looks so good. I usually make samosas with puff pastry sheets (you can find it in the freezer section in USA).
