Baked Chinese Samosa


I never thought we could bake samosa too until i saw that on tv few months back,and this time i wanted to make a healthier version of it for my family who loves this snack without compromising the taste of it and the filling which i have used is also quiet different from the usual potato stuffing as i wanted to try something new and the taste was really very nice!!


Ingredients
For the dough
1 cup plain flour + for dusting
2 tsp oil
salt to taste
For the Filling
1 capsicum finely chopped
1 carrot finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 onion finely chopped
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp tomato sauce
2 -3 tbsp Boiled chinese noodles
1 tsp light soya sauce
1 tsp white pepper powder
1 tsp vinegar
2 tsp finely chopped spring onion greens
salt to taste
2 tsp oil + for greasing
2 tsp maida mixed with water to seal the edges
Method
For the dough
  • Take a bowl add all the ingredients mentioned under dough and knead with warm water to a smooth stiff dough and then cover it with the damp cloth and keep aside
For the filling
  • Heat oil in a pan, add garlic,onion and fry till translucent
  • Add carrot,capsicum , cabbage and stir fry for 1-2 minutes
  • Add white pepper powder, salt and fry, and then add tomato sauce, sweet chilli sauce, soya sauce, vinegar and mix well
  • Fry and then add boiled noodles, spring onion greens and mix well and then keep aside to cool

For the Samosa
  • Divide the dough into small equal portions, Take one portion of the dough and roll it into a small thin round shape
  • cut into half,apply little maida paste on the edges, make a cone out of it, put the 2 tsp stuffing, close by crimping the edge
  • Likewise repeat the same procedure for the rest of the dough and filling
  • Grease a baking dish with oil and then arrange the samosa in the baking tray

  • Bake in preheated oven at 200 C for 10 minutes and then brush it with oil again and then bake it on the other side for 10 more minutes till golden brown and crisp
  • Serve hot with ketchup
(If there is leftover filling you can use it for spring rolls too & if your not calorie conscious you can deep fry the samosa )

  7. I got introduced to chinese samosa 6 years back while coming back from office at a late hour. I was hungry and was looking for a quick bite.most of the shops were either shut or were running off stock. one shop only had these but fried version. that was a surprising little triangle for me with Chinese stuffing filling my mouth and satisfying all my senses. you brought back memories of those bachelor days. lovely samosa sushma that too baked. you bought me with that.
