I love samosas. Crunchy, crispy filled with vegetable deliciousness. So when it came to the menu of foods for my son's birthday party when we were discussing last week, they were at the top of my list.... What I always think about samosas before gulping it are they tend to be too much oily...so this time I deceided I will make something different for b'day party...and finally settled on making baked vegetable samosas...
There are a lot of recipes out there for baking samosas. Turns out a lot of people enjoy them, but would prefer not getting all the extra oil in their diet. A quick perusal of the internet led me to many variations of baking. Various temperatures. I factored in all the different ways of going about it and then decided on a 400 degree oven for about 25 minutes. It worked.This is really a healthy recipe!
These Baked Vegetable Samosas makes use of ready-made malaysian parothas that we get in any indian store instead of puff pastry sheets.. so they are so quick to make and the fragrance of the filling makes it difficult to wait until you stuff the parothas before digging in!
I have not included cut out chili in it so as to make them toddler friendly. I have also had great success with freezing these. Just freeze uncooked samosas in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a large freezer bag. There's no need to defrost before baking, just add approximately 2 minutes to the baking time.
and you can easily pack it in tiffin for your toddler so also you can easily carry it in park..serves as great appetizer for party and get-togethers.Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
