Looking for an easy and even healthier spin on a classic? Enter baked aloo samosa. There is no deep frying necessary to yield the perfect samosa. Whatâ€™s more, using store-bought pie crust reduces prep time.Â Youâ€™ll want to get something like Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust; there are 2 nine-inch pie dough “rolls” which will equal 4 gorgeous samosa for this recipe. Perfect!
Donâ€™t skimp on the masala as they really do make a difference in the taste and balance of spiciness with depth of flavor. Donâ€™t forgo the fresh mint either. The coolness of it beautifully cuts the buttery mouthfeel of the pastry.
If like me, youâ€™ve always struggled with how to perfect shape and seal samosa, there is a step-by-step picture guide below which removes the guesswork.
I recommend making these for Valentineâ€™s Day, an activity that you and Bae can do together for a lil samorance (samosa + romance). You could make the aloo stuffing a couple days in advance, refrigerate, and then use bust it out once youâ€™re ready for assembly.
Letâ€™s get to cooking!
