Insta Recipe: Baked Samosa puffs

Samosas are a favorite Indian snack, almost like comfort food on a rainy day or a perfect party starter. A crowdpleaser, here’s a shot at making a healthy #bakednotfried version.

Getting the filling right is the trick to a delish #samosa . Here’s a short recipe for baked Samosa puffs.


  • 6 Russet potatoes  (boiled)
  • 4 sheets of organic puff pastry (I used Borg’s in this recipe)
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated ginger & garlic
  • 1 tsp hing / asafoetida 
  • 1 tsp each: coriander seeds, aniseeds (saunf) , caraway (ajwain) roasted & coarsely ground 
  • 1 cup baby peas 
  • 20 gm chopped coriander 
  • 1 tsp turmeric 
  • 1 tsp garam masala


  1. Peel & mash the boiled potatoes.
  2. Stir fry the onions, grated ginger-garlic, dry spices in olive oil.
  3. Add in the turmeric, garam masala, baby peas & salt to taste. Cook for five minutes & add in the mashed potatoes & coriander. Allow the stuffing to cool.
  4. Cut circles of puff pastry, add a tablespoon of filling and fold over, seal the edges by pressing down with a fork.
  5. Lay the puffs on a baking sheet sprayed with olive oil & bake at 220 degrees for 30 minutes.

A healthier, baked version of samosa is ready to be savored with mint chutney or spicy ketchup.
