Better Than Takeout Baked Butter Chicken Samosa

Everyone loves samosas. But if you’re like me and a bit reluctant to indulge in deep-fried foods, this Baked Butter Chicken Samosa recipe is about to become your new favourite.

I came up with this recipe to satisfy my own cravings of food from back home and decided to go with a butter chicken filling to make it a little more exciting for my meat-loving partner. Typically samosas have a potato and peas filling and are deep-fried in a vat of oil.

Not only do I avoid deep-frying foods to keep things healthy, but I’m also terrified of getting burnt from splattering hot oil! Not to mention the prospect of discarding it after just one use.

Now you may wonder: Does baking still keep the samosa shells crispy? The answer is: YES, absolutely!

The recipe calls for a half cup whole-wheat flour and another half cup plain flour. I think this ratio works perfectly to create a fluffy ball of dough that’s easy to roll out without becoming a sticky mess.

Shaping the samosas can look intimidating, but I’ve broken it down into steps that are easy to follow. And don’t worry if they’re not perfectly shaped, it just adds to the rustic home-made look.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had
