When I was challenged by Patak’s Canada to make samosa, I was totally clueless. I have never made samosa in my life. So I searched (on Pinterest of course) and discovered that samosa can be either fried or baked. Since I am not a fan of fried food, I decided to go with the baked version. It seems that the most popular type of baked samosa recipe is potato and pea ones. They looked so good. As usual, I wanted to add my own spin and use an ingredient that is abundant these days: Butternut squash and an ingredient that will add flavour: Mango Chicken Sauce! Odd combination at first but it turned out amazing!
Potato And Squash Baked Samosa Recipe
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 TBSP of olive oil
- 2 Potatos peeled and diced
- 1 butternut squash peeled
- 1 can of Mango Chicken Sauce
- 1 Pack of pastry sheets. I found them in a specialty store. Some people use Phyllo for the recipe.
- Preheat oven 350F
- In a pot, bring water to boil
- Add diced potato
- In the mean time, microwave butternut squash for 7 minutes or until tender.
- Let it cool and dice it.
- Heat a pan. Add oil.
- Add onion and cook it until it softens
- Add potatoes, squash and half of Mango Chicken Sauce
- Reduce heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add a greased baking sheet to a baking pan.
- On a large clean cutting board, display your pastry sheets.
- Cut them in half
- Scoop one TBSP of filling in the pastry sheet. Fold in triangles.
- Repeat until you have no longer filling or pastry sheets.
- Brush the samosa with some melted butter or margarine.
- Bake for 10 mn until golden brown.
- As I mentioned above you can make this baked samosa recipe with phyllo, if you prefer.
- You can reserve some of the filling as an accompanying dish too. It is delicious!
- Serve this baked vegetable samosa as an appetizer or an accompanying dish with rice or you favourite chicken recipe!
- It is better to eat them while hot. If you want to reheat them, use the oven, not the microwave.
