This mini samosas recipes brings out major, tasty crunch. The vegetarian snack is filled with potatoes and other tasty delights.
Samosas are one of the most popular Indian snack foods. They are triangular shaped fried pastries filled with various savory fillings such as spiced potatoes, lentils, onions or paneer.
My version is based on the homemade samosas my mother made. My mom’s weren’t your typical restaurant samosa. Although tasty, those samosas are usually much larger and have a thicker pastry on the outside than the ones my mom made at home. She always made these mini samosas for parties and dinner gatherings.
Served hot out of the fryer, they would be finished before the second batch even made it to the table. They have the crispiest outside and best potato vegetable filling you could imagine.
This recipe is time consuming, but not as much as most because you don’t need to make and roll dough. It uses pre-made spring roll wrappers, which is what makes it so crispy on the outside.
The folding takes some time, but if you can recruit a friend to help, it goes by fast. (Just promise them a portion of the samosas!) It makes about 100 samosas, but they freeze well pre-fried. I like to have them on hand for last minute guests.
It’s easy to take out just a few from the freezer and fry them for a snack. If you want a healthier option, you can bake them. I’ll be honest, though, there’s no doubt that the fried ones are better!
So go ahead, give it a try! Serve them hot with ketchup, tamarind-date chutney, or try this cilantro chutney.
