      Samosa is a popular snack and needs no introduction in our Indian household. Samosas make up for the nostalgic birthday party moments, the rainy season, canteen with friends, and afternoon snacks with office colleagues. But a more refined and healthier version of samosa is the baked samosa. Baked samosa has all the taste and flavour of a regular samosa but without the frying process. Baked samosa ... s have fewer calories compared to other common potato recipes. It is thus free from the saturated oils and is light on the stomach. With the same taste and texture as that of a regular samosa, it is a popular choice for a light family snack. Another good thing about baked samosas is they can be stored in the fridge and you can bake them when you are ready to indulge. Baked samosa is a good appetiser and side dish when served with chutney or tomato sauce for a rich and authentic taste. It has lesser calories so that you don’t have to worry about restricting your cravings while you indulge in a healthier twist of homemade baked samosa. You can also replace the all-purpose flour with whole wheat atta to prepare a healthier samosa. You can also cut down on the potato contents and replace it with green peas and some sliced Gobi. Although you might not get the same authentic taste, your stomach will thank you later. It is also very easy to make this baked samosa recipe as it requires very few ingredients.

      Directions

      Take a deep bowl and add flour to it. Add ghee to the flour and mix well using your fingers. Once the flour and ghee are given a nice mix, add water to make a firm dough. Cover the dough with a wet muslin or cotton cloth and leave it aside for 15 to 20 minutes. Boil potatoes until tender. Peel and mash them nicely. Keep aside. Similarly, boil green peas in some water, strain, and mash them. Let it cool. In a non-stick pan, heat oil and add cumin. Let it splutter. Add mashed potatoes to the pan and sauté for a few minutes. Once potatoes are done, add boiled green peas, green-chilli and ginger paste, dry mango powder, red chilli powder and salt. Give a thorough mix and keep cooking the mixture on low flame for a few minutes or until all the flavours get nicely mixed together. Add chopped coriander leaves to the mixture and mix well. Remove the mixture from heat and keep it aside to cool down. You can use this mixture to make baked Vada Pav too. Divide the dough into 18 to 20 equal parts. Dust each roll to make an oval roti. Cut each roti horizontally from the centre. Take one portion and roll it into a cone. Scoop out one tablespoon of aloo filling and stuff it in the cone. Apply water on all the open edges and seal the Samosa carefully. Roll out all the Samosas in a similar way. Take a baking tray. Place a baking sheet and grease it with some oil. Arrange Samosas in the baking dish. Brush or spray some oil over the Samosa before baking them. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees and bake the Samosa for 15 to 20 minutes or until they turn golden and crispy. After 15 minutes, take out the baking dish and turn over the Samosas and bake for another 15 minutes. Serve hot and crispy Samosa with mint chutney!

      Few Additional Tips and Hacks

      Now that you know how to make Samosa at home with this super easy to make the recipe, here are some more tips and hacks that you may not find in any Samosa video: Adding some ghee while kneading the dough will make the crispier Samosa, which can match the crunchiness of potato chips. If you do not wish to add ghee, you can replace it with refined oil in this Samosa recipe. To add more texture to the filling of these simple Samosas, you can add some chopped nuts such as cashew nuts, walnuts, or even peanuts. Make sure you roast the nuts before adding them to the filling for the added crunch. If you like a hint of sweetness in your Samosa, you can add chopped raisins to the filling too. For healthier alternatives to these yummy simple Samosas, you can add vegetable puree or pulp to knead the dough. For a more nutritional punch and health benefits, you can add banana flour along with whole wheat flour to make the dough. The best thing about this recipe is that you can store the unbaked Samosas in the freezer for a few days. However, do not store them for long as the potato and peas mixture may turn stale and lose its texture and taste. And when you wish to make Samosas, simply keep them out of the freezer and bake them as usual. Also, when stuffing the filling inside the Samosa, make sure you gently press the filling down the cone to remove any air pockets as air pockets may pop open while baking. If you do not have dry mango powder to make the mixture tangier, you can add the juice of 1 lemon to the potato mixture. However, make sure you add lemon juice towards the end and then cook the mixture for a couple of minutes.
