Baked Samosas( less oily, low calory snack)

Baked Samosas
While fried samosas have got their own wonderful taste they are very high in calories, so  I dedicate this recipe to all health and figure concious people who love eating but get detered some times due to oil and clories involved in fried samosas.

Preparation time: 15- 20 min.
Baking time: 10 - 15 min.
Servings made: Total Samosa made from above material  10 - 15.

Directions to prepare Baked Samosas
  • Mix butter and maida nicely till it resembles bread crumbs.
  • Beat egg white and add it to the butter maida mixture with continuous mixing and kneading.
  • If required add little milk to it while kneading. 
  • Knead the mixture to a soft but firm dough. Make sure the dough is firm, other wise the samosas will not be crispy.

    Tip(s) :
    • Do not bake to dark brown color.
    •  For those who do not take eggs, eggs can be replaced by butter/ghee. 
    Suggested variation:
    • Minced meat (mutton / chicken ) can taken instead of potatoes.
    • Coarsely ground powder of roasted moong dal can be taken instead of potatoes and peas.
