Healthy Samosa Baskets

Samosas are usually known to be an unhealthy Indian appetiser deep fried and filled with vegetables and some times meat and laden with calories. Here is my version of the ‘Healthy Samosa’ even down to the crispy outer shell.

I do love a good samosa, and even though they are vegan friendly I still would prefer a healthy alternative, and these are it. Perfect bite size portion means that they do go down a little easier and quicker then I would like, but the thin crispy filo basket just adds the perfect texture to each bite.

Clean and lean spicy samosa filling is very flavoursome and for this recipe I did cut down the spice as I’m a hot mamma, love lots of spice and chili in my food so you can probably double the chili powder or add a few fresh chili for an extra punch.
