How to make baked samosa:

  • Divide the dough into 10 equal portions.
  • Roll a portion into a ball and flatten them between your palms.
  • Roll out a portion of the dough into an oval of 4 by 6 using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
  • Divide each chapatti into 2 halves; make a cone from each half. Stuff each cone with approx. 1 tbsp of the stuffing.
  • Seal the edges carefully using a little water.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 19 more samosas.
  • Arrange them on a greased baking tray, brush 2 tsp of oil evenly over all the samosas and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180ºc (360ºf) for 15 minutes.
  • Turn them over and bake again for 15 minutes.
  • Serve the baked samosa immediately with pudina chutney.     - Alekhya Reddy
