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.

    What you said made a bunch of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you were to create a awesome post title? I am not
    suggesting your information is not good, but
    suppose you added a headline that makes people want more?

    Supper Club is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and watch
    how they create post headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written.
    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
