baked samosa recipe with step by step photos – a healthy version of aloo samosa which are baked and made with whole wheat flour. i sometimes make these baked samosa when we want to have a healthy recipe of samosa with chai. this aloo samosa recipe, i have learnt in my home science college days and i still follow it. it gives me good results always.

baked samosa recipe

generally most indian snacks like kachori, pakoda, chips when baked do not taste like their fried counterparts. of course goes without saying the fried ones are always tasty. but at times you want something light for the heart as well as for the stomach, especially with the most loved indian snacks. for now i only prepare samosas and papdis in the oven. i did not like the texture of pakoras made in the oven. may be when i develop a good recipe of pakoras that can be made in the oven, i will definitely add the recipe.

the texture of these baked samosas are not like the fried ones. they are crisp, flaky but you won’t get the texture that happens when samosas are fried. i even tried a batch of these in the air fryer. honestly speaking the air fried ones were better as far as texture was concerned than the oven baked ones. they tasted similar to the fried samosas, minus the oil. if you are looking for recipes that can be made in an air fryer, then just comment below on which air fryer recipe you would like to see on the website.

as mentioned above, i have used whole wheat flour in the samosa pastry. of course you can use all purpose flour (maida or refined flour or white flour) or a half-half of both whole wheat flour and all purpose flour.

if you have an air fryer, then you can make these potato samosa in the air fryer or else bake them in the oven. and if you want, you can even fry them. do check this detailed samosa recipe, to know more about the frying tips. you can also check this bengali version of samosa called as singara or shingara.

few tips for making samosa dough crust

  1. enough fat or moyen should be added to the flour. one of my friend had suggested 1/5th of fat to 1 part of flour in weight.
  2. the amount of water added depends on the quality and texture of the flour used. so remember to knead into a tight firm dough and add water in turns when kneading.
  3. don’t roll the samosa crust too thick otherwise it will take too much time to bake it and it can become hard due to a prolonged baking.
  4. also don’t roll the samosa too thin, as it won’t able to contain the potato stuffing.
  5. do brush with some oil before you bake the samosas.
  6. a pinch of baking soda does help in making the samosa crust a bit soft.

serve these aloo samosa hot or warm with tamarind chutney or coriander chutney or even tomato ketchup.

  1. Great recipe, Thank you!

    • Welcome Nina

  2. I am planning to buy air fryer can you suggest me which one is good .

    • Subasri, i really don’t know. i got pigeon brand air fryer as a gift and it is working well. but i have not used much.

  3. Hi…I really love your recipes.. could you kindly post a few recipes on air fryer like paneer pakoda , semolina Samosa etc

    • Thanks Lakshmi. I am planning to add some air fryer recipes for a long time. But the requested recipes listed is too long. So can’t commit.

  4. Can I use plain flour for this recipe instead of whole wheat flour?

    • yes, you can use plain flour.

  5. Hi I always follow ur recipies just wanna know I have bajaj otg 28littre can you please suggest me in which mode I should keep for baked samosa in bake, grill, toast or roti.? I am really confused when it comes to bake something like this samosa, or baked kachori or baked onion pakoda. Pls solve my query.

    • sujata, i also have bajaj OTG (35 litres). for baking you can either use the toast option (both elements heated) or only the bake option (bottom element heated). usually i use the toast option for samosa or any snack and even cakes, cookies too. i also bake cakes with the bake option. both work fine. just that with bake option, the top takes time in browning or gets less browned.

  6. Hi – thanks for the recipe. how do I make this in Philips Airfryer? What should be the temp and for how long should I airfry? Thanks!

    • temp can be 180 degrees celsius. baking time i cannot exactly tell. i baked for about 6 to 7 minutes.

      • Thank you!

        • Welcome Agopal

  7. I have Philip’s air fryer, how much time would it take in that?

    • it depends on the temperature you use. i kept for around 6 to 7 minutes. but just check once or twice while air frying.

  8. Could this recipe be made with gluten free flours, such as chickpea, quinoa, sorghum, rice or any combination of those. I miss samosas and would like to make a gluten free version.
    Also, I have tried many of your recipes and love them! Even made homemade dosas! Thanks so much for compiling all these wonderful recipes!

    • Welcome Joan. Thanks for your positive feedback. I have never tried. it can work but some hit and trials are needed to get the right proportions.

  9. Will try this for sure.

    • thanks.
