Oven-baked Samosa Recipe: A Vegetarian Version of This Traditional Indian Street Food

"Hi, I have not seen any street food articles or recipes on this site from India. Could you please share some?" Sure, Birchi! Here's an easy recipe for baked samosas, a traditional street food in India. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce! 

You’ll need:

  • 4 potatoes, peeled, diced, cooked until tender and mashed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons coriander seed
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 4 refrigerated premade pie crusts
  • egg wash (get Chef Gigi’s egg wash recipe)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the onions, coriander, curry, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Cook until it begins to lightly brown, about 5 minutes. 
  2. Turn off the heat and add the potatoes, tomatoes and peas. Mix well. Cool.
  3. Cut each pie crust into eight triangles. Fill with some of the mixture. Fold the corners up to completely enclose the filling. Pinch to seal.
  4. Lay the samosas on a baking sheet. Brush with egg wash.
  5. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven until golden brown, about 13-15 minutes.
