Steamed Zero Oil Potato Samosas

After some guilt free zero oil potato chips,my next recipe for this week's theme of zero oil cooking goes obviously for the most famous Indian snack the popular deep fried samosas. Since i have already prepared samosas as baked version and shallow fry version, i seriously wanted to give a try to the steamed ones. If you guys love the famous momos, the Tibetan steamed dumplings, this steamed samosas is for you.

Even the filling in this samosas dont have a single drop of oil and these steamed version samosas will be a big hit if you give a try to them. Initially even i wasnt very much sure of the final result and went for small quantity of dough and stuffing,finally they turned out simply awesome and these steamed samosas is our recent favourite snacks, serve it simply with a hot chilly sauce or ketchup am sure you guys will definitely fallen in love with this steamed zero oil potato samosas. Check out the other bloggers running this 23rd edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to 60days of Christmas hosted by Priya and Divya.




1cup All purpose flour
1/4tsp Baking powder
Salt

Sieve the flour,baking powder together and knead with enough water as a smooth and soft dough, cover the dough with a damp cloth for half an hour and keep aside.

For filling:
2nos Potatoes (cooked & mashed slightly)
1no Green chilly (chopped)
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/4tsp Chaat masala
Chopped coriander leaves
Salt

Take the mashed potatoes,chopped green chilly,garam masala powder, chaat masala,salt and chopped coriander leaves in a bowl, mix well.

Make tiny balls from the dough, dust with  flour and roll them as circles, cut in the middle of the circles, make two demi circles, just fold the sides to make a cone.

Now gently put some already potato mixture inside the cone, press the sides tightly until they gets sticks or use water to stick the edges,continue the process until the masala and dough get finished.

Steam cook them for 10-15minutes in an idly cooker and enjoy warm with hot sauces or ketchup.

  2. Priya, this is really interesting one. They look mouthwatering though the word steamed had made me assume that they are going to look different.
    And BTW, do you want to do the exercise again?

  30. Wow.. steamed samosas - that is just awesome... so I guess it will be a bit like momos but with a savoury filling. Do we have to roll it out too thin or like what we usually do for samosas. I'm definitely trying this - thanks!
