Easy Baked Indian Samosas

June 27, 2011

Whenever I eat out at an Indian restaurant, I always request samosas.  These flavorful bundles are filled with peas, potato, chicken, and spices.  They are usually fried but I love this baked version.  The puff pastry makes them light and adds a slight crunch.  You can easily make these vegetarian by substituting chicken with chickpeas.  I like to dip mine in chutney but yogurt sauce is just as delicious.
