Whether crisp and triangular, or big and conical, samosas are a universal favourite throughout the country. Here is the traditional gujarati “patti samosa”, which is a crispy samosa a tad different from the recipes of other regions. Unlike other samosas, the gujarati version does not use boiled potatoes—here, raw potatoes are chopped and allowed to cook in oil. The use of cabbage is another distinguishing factor, as also the making of pattis with wheat flour rather than maida.

Samosa ( Gujarati Recipe) with step by step photos

What are Samosas?

  1. What is a Samosa?  Think of the samosa as a tasty parcel! A cover of flattened dough wraps up a delectable stuffing, and the whole parcel is deep-fried or baked to perfection, to get a scrumptious snack.

    The most common stuffing for samosa is cooked and roughly mashed potatoes, spiced up with varied Indian spices and spice powders. There are, of course, innumerable variants. Typical North Indian Samosa is conical in shape, packed with spicy cooked potatoes. The Punjabi Samosa is bigger and richer – literally bulky! It is obviously one of their favourite snacks as Punjabis are game to have samosas even for breakfast.

    There are variants of samosas with different veggies – could be multiple veggies mashed together with the potatoes, single veg samosas, or different combinations of veggies without potato!
    In South India, you will find onions dominating the stuffing, and the Samosa itself is smaller and flatter than what you see up North. Try the Onion Samosa. On the other hand, you can make Samosa Kadhi Chaat, which use raw bananas for the stuffing.

    The Gujarati Samosa is quite different from the rest of the breed, because the stuffing is made of finely-chopped raw potatoes rather than cooked and mashed ones. The potato cooks in the oil, which gives it a rather different taste and mouth-feel. When in Hyderabad, you should taste the Lukhmi, which is a flaky version of the Samosa, with a spicy and rich taste.

    You can make samosas with totally off-beat combinations of ingredients. Have you ever thought of making a Poha and Sprouted Vatana Samosa? Do try it! You can also make nice mini samosas like the Mini Spinach and Cheese Samosa, which are kind of bite-sized and easy to serve as starters and cocktail snacks. Get super local with the Rice Samosas, or go international with the Ravioli Samosa. When in a rush, look no further than the Jhatpat Samosa. Your choices are unlimited!

    While we are at it, how can we forget the innumerable chaats and other interesting snacks made using the humble samosa, like the Samosa Chaat, Chole Samosa Chaat and Samosa Kadhi Chaat. You can also smash a tasty samosa into your sandwich, as in the Toasted Samosa Sandwich or Samosa Chips Sandwich.

    Oh well, plain old samosa tastes awesomely good too, so you can just walk up to the vendor at the end of the street and enjoy a piping hot one with chutney at tea-time today!
