What Is Samosa?

Samosa is a triangular savory pastry that is traditionally fried in ghee or oil, and contains spiced vegetables or meat. My healthy vegetable samosa is a must-try!

There is no longer a need to roll dough, add filling, or deep fry. These Potato and Peas Samosa Muffins are not only healthier than traditional samosas, but they are also crispy on the outside and fluffy and flavorful on the inside! This is a great way to use leftover boiled or mashed potatoes. For a low-fat samosa, try my Baked Samosa Recipe.

Ingredients: Potato and Peas Samosa Muffins

  • Mashed potatoes provide a creamy base, absorbing the rich flavors of the spices while offering a smooth texture.
  • Coconut oil adds a hint of tropical sweetness and richness, used for sautéing the aromatics.
  • Onion: Minced onion brings a sharp, sweet depth when cooked, which is foundational to the muffins’ savory profile.
  • Garlic: Essential for its robust, pungent flavor, garlic deepens the aromatic complexity of the dish.
  • Ginger: offers a zesty, warm kick, enhancing the other spices with its peppery notes.
  • Curry Powder: This spice blend imparts a warm, earthy flavor, central to the samosa’s characteristic taste.
  • Salt: is crucial for highlighting and balancing the savory spices and ingredients.
  • Cayenne Pepper: Optional but recommended for adding a spicy edge that can be adjusted to preference.
  • Cilantro: provides a fresh, citrusy burst, lifting the rich flavors with a touch of green freshness.
  • Green peas contribute sweetness and a pleasant crunch, contrasting nicely with the creamy potatoes and bold spices.

I had mashed potato muffins on Sunday when I went to a fun event with some of my friends. One of these ladies always makes sure there is a  gluten-free dish prepared for me, What a precious friend. She brought potato muffins, with a cheesy vegan topping that was so delicious. Needless to say, I decided to make

Needless to say, I decided to make my own version. I went for a spicy samosa flavor without the crust. The result was phenomenal.  It was easy for me to make a samosa-flavored muffin because that was my favorite Indian treat before I developed gluten intolerance.

The food on Sunday was wonderful, and the mashed potato muffins were very popular, they not only looked appealing but were so delicious. We had so much fun playing games and exchanging gifts.

How To Make Potato and Peas Samosa Muffins

I used a regular muffin pan but a mini-muffin pan would be ideal. The mini size can be served as appetizers. If you decide to use mini-muffin pans,  adjust the baking time to about 15-20 minutes. They are also a wonderful way to use up leftover mashed potatoes!

I used red bliss potatoes that are waxy, so they stick together. Another good one would be the Yukon gold to ensure that the muffins stick together. I didn’t need to add any form of egg replacer but 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed may help.
