I think January is all about eating healthy, and shedding all those extra kilos you gained over the holidays. One of my favorite ways to eat healthy is by adding a healthy twist to old fashioned recipes.
This baked samosa is a great example of such recipes. The traditional samosas are usually deep fried, but in this recipe, we are going to bake them.
I really love these keema (minced meat) samosas I made last year, but this time, I want to introduce you to the classic method of making samosas. Minus deep frying. So, we are going to make samosa pastry as well as vegetarian filling the very traditional way.
Making the samosa pastry and then the filling may seem to be a humongous task, but let me tell you, this is the most authentic way to enjoy samosa. Obviously, you can go the easy way using pre-made samosa pastry or puff pastry sheets.
Potatoes and green peas are the traditional elements in vegetarian samosas. However, you can play around with the ingredients, and add your favorites like cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, paneer, grated cheese etc.
Again, we are talking all about the healthy version of samosas here. So, baking is the way to go. Baked samosa has a completely different texture compared to its deep fried version. So, if you are after the real classic taste, I recommend deep frying them until golden. However, baking is definitely the right decision for all weight watchers.
