TFF Samosas with Chickpeas and Spinach



Dear friends this week we made samosas but vegetarian and baked instead of fried, I hope it's not too much of a change but that evening I really didn't want to deep fry ! The results were very good I made the samosa smaller but that way you don't get enough filling so next time I'll stick to Tyler's suggestions




I don't really have the skills of a perfect samosa's maker ! But I'll get better !



I froze half the samosas and I'm looking forward to eating them !! If you want to try the recipe is

These sound delicious. Each country has it's own version and in Greece we call them bourekia or kaltsounia.

My vegetarian daughter would love these (and I would too), I have to try them. I think baking them in the oven is a good choice!

And what a great converter widget you have here, I couldn't resist putting in on my blog too, hope that's alright!

Natalia, ciccare dev'essere veneziano, significa provare invidia.

Meno male che l'hai detto tu, ma sono d'accordo con te, mi sembra un po' porcino il Tyler.

Provero' la ricetta per i samosas, mi piacciono molto ma non li faccio mai.

Buon fine settimana!

Delicious Samosas Natalia. I made the fried one, of course I can really eat them as much as I would. This baked one is much healthier version. Well done.
Cheers,

I love samosas! Vegetarian and not fried are perfect for me. YUM.

Marta said...

si vedono buonissime queste leggere samose. non tradizionale, ma lo scambio healthy e benvenuto! l'abbinamento dei ceci con gli spinaci mi sembra ottimo in queste samose!
Grazie!

They look great! I love samosas. What a great shape you got out of them, perfect!

That's like healthy meat pies! I love that you baked them!

TeaLady said...

Of course, here in the south they are called fried pies - filled with meat, or fruit, or a veggie mix. And I love samosas. I like that you baked and didn't fry them. They look delicious.

I have been wanting to try these. I love samosas. I'm glad to hear that you liked them. They look like they tasted very good.

I think you look like an expert samosa maker! I love them and always bake them too to cut down on the fat and oil.

Megan said...

I've never had samosas before - they look really good!

Your samosas look great! You have the knack! I think baking them is a great way to go. Beautiful job!

I did some ages ago and baked! Loved them. Seeing yours I know I need to do them again. Smaller size seems wonderful idea to me.

Jenny said...

Nothing wrong with those skills, those samosas look good to me

I love, love, LOVE samosas! The version I make has carrots, peas, and potatoes sauteed with cumin seed and mixed with fresh mint. I sure they're great with chckpeas and spinach too- it's hard to go wrong with samosas.
