Baked Potato N Soya Kheema Samosas

Samosas, famous Indian snacks which is triangular in shape and served with chutneys...Samosa is the fried and stuffed pastry which is generally prepared with a filling of spiced potatoes, onion, peas, minced meat or sometimes with fresh paneer..For a change i have prepared my samosa filling with potates and soyachunks grounded as kheema ,with wat i prepared the masala and spiced with red chilly powder and garam masala powder , cumin seed powder etc, instead of making samosas with maida dough i prepared these delicious samosas with spring roll pastry sheet which i got from frozen section which was quite simple to prepare easily these samosas and also suits prefect for baking...Samosas become popular in many countries especially frozen samosas..U can find very easily frozen samosas in indian groceries if u r living in abroad..Baking is a healthier way to indulge these samosas than frying them in hot oil..I do prepare often samosas as baking version as i go for spring roll pastry sheet...This bakes potato n soya kheema samosas goes straight to Madhuram's Low Fat Baking Event...


8nos Spring roll pastry sheet
1/2cup Potato N Soya Kheema Masala

Cut the spring roll pastry sheets as long strips..place a tablespoon of potato and soya kheema masala directly over the sheets n fold them as triangles as we do for samosas...Preheat the oven at 350F..Grease a baking sheet with few drops of oil, brush each samosas with oil and arrange one by one over the greased baking sheet and bake of 20 minutes by turning on both sides until they turn slightly brown...


Serve them hot !!!


Potato N Soya Kheema Masala:




3nos Potatoes (boiled and cubed)
1/4cup Soya chunks (cooked and grounded)
1noo Onion (chopped)
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1/4tsp Cumin seed powder
1/4tsp Garam masala powder
Salt
1tsp Oil
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)


Heat the oil and add the chopped onions, saute until they turns transparent, add the cubes potatoes and grounded soya kheema with red chilly powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder and salt, toss everything gently and cook in simmer for few minutes and finally add the chopped coriander leaves and put off the stove...

Priya, I too use spring roll pastry sheets to bake samosas. Great minds think alike! Nice touch to add soy chunks to the masala. I think instead of grounding the soy chunks we can use the already powdered soy chunks available in Nutrella brand itself. Thanks for the entry.
