When it comes to Indian appetizers, samosas seem to be on top of the list. This delicious dish is usually deep fried. But what if you could prepare oil-free samosas and still end up with delicious flavors?
Samosa ingredients are usually basic: flour, salt, water and vegetable oil. The good news is, if you’re going after oil-free samosas, you can substitute the same quantity of oil for yogurt! You will end up with a healthier version yet the same dough texture.
There are many variations to create a delicious samosa filling without any oil at all. You can steam different types of vegetable such as corn, peas, baby carrots… then season them with your favorite spices. You can also boil some potatoes and mash them (or use leftovers), add to them some green chili peppers and season with garam masala, salt and black pepper. The options are endless and the result is one: an oil-free filling that everyone will love!
Nothing beats a low fat fryer like Fry delight to cook perfectly healthy and oil-free samosas. Preheat your appliance for 3 minutes at 200⁰c and set it on the baking mode. Place your samosas in the basket and set the timer for 9 minutes. Brush with eggs for a golden result. Start the cooking process and midway through, open the drawer and turn your samosas for a crunchy and crispy finish.
If you don’t feel like cooking your samosas right away, you can freeze them and cook them later. Bon appetit!
