Wholegrain Baked Samosa Stuffed With Sweet Potatoes & Peas #SundaySupper

  A warm  freshly baked samosa stuffed with a savory mixture of sweet potatoes, peas and red potatoes is the ultimate comfort food for me. It conjures up memories of me as a child walking down the street to a “sweet and snack shop ” where I would watch as  freshly stuffed samosas were fried in a huge cauldron of oil and eaten piping hot by the people who bought them.  I would usually eat one right there while it was hot and then take the rest home. This was in Bangalore India where I grew up.  When my Sunday Supper team decided to do a ” Comfort Food Theme” I immediately thought of samosas .  A samosa is like a calzone and you can be very creative stuffing it. Well, here in the States they still continue to be my favorite comfort food and I usually get  some pretty good ones from an Indian restaurant .  When I was pregnant, I craved them and my poor husband was rushing to the store every time the craving hit ! Now I’ve figured out how to make a healthier version by baking it instead of frying and it tastes better. I also used a combo of sweet potatoes and potatoes and this raised the nutritional value and gave it more character.  The stuffing must be a little spiced, so I added some mustard seeds, onion, cumin, grated ginger and chili to the sweet potato mix ! They came out crisp and fresh from the oven and it took self-control to take some pictures before devouring them. You can eat them plain, but I like to dip them in a tangy date ginger dip which makes it a sweet and savory treat ! They also go pretty well with  this  mint cilantro dip !


Nutrition Wise !

Baked samosas are a good source of fiber if you use whole grain dough.  Sweet potatoes and potatoes add to the fiber and give  a healthy dose of Vitamin A & C. Peas are bursting with flavor, fiber and antioxidants ! So much goodness in a samosa !!



 Making the samosas

Knead dough. Make small balls the size of a lemon, roll them out and cut using a  calzone press. Then stuff the mixture into half of the press and close to get a nice samosa. If you don’t have  a calzone press, just make lime size balls of dough and roll to form a circle. Stuff  one side of the circle with filling, close the circle and seal with some water. It will work just as fine ! If you do it manually you can control the size of the samosa. When you use a calzone press they come out pretty large.

Short cut method ! 
Since I am following the October Unprocessed Challenge I made my own dough with a mix of oats and whole grain wheat flour.  You can also use pizza dough, pastry dough, wanton wraps or puff pastry sheets. It has quite a different taste with the puff pastry.
