How to Make Healthy Samosa

  • To make samosa filling: Boil peas and carrots in water until cooked, and drain water.
  • Cut boiled potatoes into little cubes.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • When oil is hot, add the cumin seeds.
  • Wait till they splutter and then, add the chopped onions.
  • Fry onions till golden brown.
  • Add the paste and fry for a bit longer.
  • Add the chillies, potatoes, peas, carrots, lemon juice, salt, sugar and garam masala.
  • Mix well, lightly mashing together ingredients.
  • After it's thoroughly mixed, remove from heat.
  • To make flour paste: Slowly mix water into white flour until mixture reaches a thick, lump-free consistency.
  • Make sure to mix well while adding water.
  • Ensure there are very few lumps of flour left and do not add too much water.
  • To make samosa:
  • Take a flour tortilla and lightly toast in oven, till it is warm enough to fold in half and cut.
  • Cut tortilla into two halves, down the middle.
  • Create triangle with one half using flour paste to seal sides.
  • Fill triangle with filling and seal ends with flour paste.
  • Place on greased (with oil) cookie sheet.
  • Lightly brush samosa with oil.
  • Bake in oven at 350 degrees centigrade, turning once to ensure both sides are lightly browned (about 15 to 20 mins).
