Who doesn’t love samosas? Even though all of us feel a wee itch of guilt while biting into a samosa, the rush of fun, excitement and memories that it brings back totally overrides such negative emotions!

But, well, all said and done, as adults we know that deep-fried foods are not the best option, so here is an interesting alternative that will ensure the same fun, albeit without the guilt.

These Baked Samosas are healthier than regular ones, but every bite remains as exciting as ever. It is also quite convenient, because you can bake the samosas at one shot instead of deep-frying them few at a time.

We have also replaced maida with whole wheat flour to improve the health quotient. You need to keep one thing in mind though – these samosas must be served immediately as they get soft and soggy after a while.

So, once you turn them over half way through baking, prepare the chutney and put the kettle on the stove. As soon as the Baked Samosas are ready, serve them with tangy Green Chutney and garam Chai.

Enjoy how to make Baked Samosa recipe with detailed step by step photos below.

   Hi Ria, It is not advisable to store the samsosas for such a long period of time!The potatoes and peas might become stale.

I tried it with a slight change and it turned out great. The little change was that I did not cook the cha patios on tava. Instead I directly made samosas of rolled chapatis, brushed them with olive oil and baked them in the oven till golden brown. It was very crispy and of course healthy too :)

Tried this out and somewhat not so much happy with it.It did not appear as shown in the picture and moreover who are so much diet conscious it is ok for them, but for the rest we will have to compromise with the taste.It is not giving that taste which we get from the samosas which are deep fried!
