How to make Baked Samosa

Recipe of baked whole wheat Samosa

Samosa is a delicious Indian savory stuffed pastry stuffed with potato filling. This is the baked version of traditional samosa which is healthy and delicious. It is full of flavor and taste great without deep frying. When serve with a hot cup of tea on a rainy day, it can be quiet addictive.

The best part about these samosas are that you can make them and freeze uncooked samosas for the next day. There is not much difference is fried and baked samosa. If you compare, I think the deep fried ones are more crispier but baked are healthy and you can eat it guilt free. It is served hot with tamarind or mint chutney.
