Baked Samosa recipe
We all love eating steaming hot samosas, but many of us don't like eating too much oil. Baked samosas, prepared without frying, is the best option for them. If we bake the normal samosa, then they have slightly hard surface. But we use fermented (with yeast) dough then samosas come out really soft and delicious.

How to Make Baked Samosas?
For baked samosas, take flour in any vessel for kneading the dough. Add salt, sugar, dry active yeast and oil in the flour and mix well. With help of lukewarm water, knead soft dough. Keep kneading the dough for 4 to 5 minutes until smooth (to knead this much quantity of flour, approx 1/3 cup of water is used). Grease the dough with some oil. Cover the dough and keep it aside for 2 hours. Dough puffs double from its original size. When the dough is fermented, we can use it for making samosas.
Prepare the Stuffing:
Take some oil in a pan and heat it sufficiently. When oil is hot, add green chilly, ginger, cumin powder, coriander powder and peas. Saute the peas for 2 minutes. Peel the potatoes and mash them finely. Add salt, red chilly powder, garam masala, mango powder and green coriander. Mix all ingredients really well. Turn off the flame and take out stuffing in a bowl, so that it cools quickly.
Knead the dough again. Make four lumps from the dough and roll giving them a round shape. Take one dough ball, dust with some dry flour and roll out thinly like chapatti with 7 to 8 inch diameter. Divide the rolled poori in two equal halves.
Take one part and place it over your hand. Spread some water on the side from where its cut and then lift from the other side and stick it nicely, giving it a cone shape. Place 1 to 1.5 tsp stuffing inside the cone. Spread some water on the corners , give a fold at the back side and stick both the sides to close the stuffing. Place this samosa in erect position (upper corner on the top) on the tray. Likewise fry all the samosas and place them at some distance on the tray.
Cover and keep aside the tray for half an hour in such a way that their shape remains intact. After half an hour, bake the samosas in oven. Preheat the oven at 180 degree centigrade. Place the tray in oven and bake samosas on 180 degrees for 10 minutes first. Check the samosas, they have turned slightly brown. Bake the samosas for 5 more minutes. Within 15 minutes, samosas turn golden brown in color. Samosas are now ready.
Piping hot baked samosas are ready. Serve with tomato sauce, green coriander chutney and relish eating.
You can make stuffing as per your taste. You can make peas-paneer stuffing or use some dry fruits along with paneer-peas for making the stuffing.
