Baked Cauliflower Samosa Recipe
Baked healthy version of samosas with sauteed cauliflower filling
Samosa is a savory snack that is loved by all age groups. Baked cauliflower stuffed samosa is a version of healthy snack from traditional oil fried samosas. I used whole wheat flour to make this samosas more healthy, if desired, the whole wheat flour can halved by replacing the other half with maida. Whole wheat flour gives a crunchy and soft texture of this samosas after baking. Other than baking, the process of making this samosa is similar to traditional samosas, but with a delicious spiced cauliflower filling.

How to make Baked Cauliflower Samosa Recipe
To begin making Baked Cauliflower Samosa Recipe, prepare all the ingredients and start with making the dough.
In a bowl, add 2 cup atta (wheat flour), oil, salt and baking soda. Keep mixing with hand until the dough becomes crumbly enough to take a shape.
Add water and make a medium tight dough, almost like chapathi dough. Cover it and rest it for 20 minutes.
In a frying pan, heat oil, add raw peanuts, fry a bit till roasted, and then add dried whole red chilli, hing powder, fennel and cumin seeds for tadka and saute a bit.
After seeds start crackling add blanched cauliflower and diced potato.
Fry for about 2 minutes then add salt, sugar, turmeric powder, grated ginger and green chillies. Mix it properly then let it cook on low heat. Stir occasionally until vegetables are well cooked. Add kasuri methi and let it cool before proceeding to stuffing it.
Preheat oven into 350 F(180 C).
Divide dough into 6-7 balls. with a rolling pin roll each dough in a round shape to medium thickness then cut them in the middle.
Take one portion of the flattened dough and shape like a cone overlapping the flat side together. Now put 1 and 1/2 tsp of stuffing inside the samosa cone and seal the edges with brushing water on the edges. Cover them with kitchen towel otherwise it will dry out.
In a baking tray, place a parchment paper and line up all samosas. Spray some cooking oil over them.
Bake samosas for 40 -45 minutes or when it nice golden in color. Cooking time varies from oven to oven so after 30 minutes check them, when done, you can take them out and allow them to cool a bit before serving for snacks.
