When it comes to the food, I mostly choose the traditional methods. But occasionally I take different route. This time I made healthy version of punjabi samosa which is baked samosa. They were good and we enjoyed.

NOTES:

  • The taste and texture of the crust cannot be compared with fried version.
  • The texture is nice flaky and crispy but not the same as fried one.
  • Of course the fried one tastes better. Obviously these are healthy, so you cannot get the same result.
  • If you use all purpose flour then you will get little close texture and taste to the fried one.

Yes you can freeze uncooked samosa!!

This baked samosa recipe is the perfect recipe to make ahead of time. Just shape and fill them. Arrange on the tray or plate. Keep in the freezer till frozen. Then store in ziplock bag in the freezer.

Also stick a note on the bag saying ‘baking time and temperature’.

Whenever crave for it, bake into preheated oven. It may take 5-7 minutes more since these are frozen.

13) Start rubbing between your fingers and thumb and keep mixing till everything is incorporated well. You will have very crumbly mixture and if you press little amount together, it may form a ball.

14) Now start adding little water at a time and make smooth dough. Make sure that dough should not be too soft like paratha/roti dough and it should not be stiff. It should be in between consistency.

15) Cover it and let it rest for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, knead it again for 2 minutes to make it smooth. Divide it into 5 equal portions and make smooth balls, flatten it out between your palm one by one.

16) Before you start shaping and filling, line a baking dish or tray with aluminium foil. Or lightly spray or grease the tray.

17) Also pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C for at least 10 minutes.

18) Work with one disc at a time. Roll into 6-7 inch diameter circle. It should be of medium thickness (not too thick, not too thin).

19) Using knife, cut into half.

20) Now work with one half circle at a time. Apply the water around the edges using brush or fingertips. Now fold it into half as shown

21) And make cone shape by folding again the remaining half by overlapping slightly. Press it and seal that part properly. Since we applied water it will stick easily.

22) Put the two three spoonful of stuffing in it. Do not over-stuff. TIP: add two three peas first at the bottom, so the triangle shape stays intact.
