What Is Samosa?

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

No more need to be rolling dough, adding filling or deep frying. 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.

Have you ever tried samosas? These muffins were such a hit, I just had to share them. Little Daevyd ate 4 of them and wanted more. I was inspired to make these since Sunday and I’m finally getting around to making them. I had mashed potato muffins on Sunday when I went to a fun event with some of my friends. One of these ladies always

Potatoes and Peas Samosa Muffins

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 were 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 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 muffin stick together. I didn’t need to add any form of egg replacer but 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed may help.

Serve this delicious samosa recipe with my Curry CabbageBlackeyed Pea Curry, Vegan Chickpea Curry,

    Seriously delicious and love the idea of making them as muffins. I can’t eat onions, so left them out and added 1/4 tsp of cumin. Just found your site this morning and I can’t wait to explore your other recipes.

    This sounds delicious! I’ve always loved Samosas and your version is doable now that I have curry!

    I love these. I added some fried tofu chunks for a bit more protein. Yum!

    October 11, 2019

    These sound wonderful. Can I use sweet potatoes in this recipe? If I can, would you advise any change to the seasonings?

    We doubled the recipe, baked in mini muffin pans and they are delicious! I used much less cayenne pepper but they are still comfortably spicy. I’ll let you know how they freeze.

      Candy, I’m happy they turned out great for you. Yes, I must admit that I love spicy food so sometimes I’m heavy on the pepper. I can’t wait to hear how they freeze, thank you very much.

    Can the samosa muffins be made in advance and frozen?

      Candy, somehow mine didn’t last that long. If you freeze some please let us know how they turn out.

        Thanks Michelle. Just put them in the oven. I’m freezing them for our upcoming Jewish new year. I work full time etc and am having company two days in a row. I think these are something different for this crowd! As vegetarians my husband and I love Indian food.

    I follow WFPB no oil, sugar or salt. Can this be made without the oil? Is there a substitute or will they be drier?

      I haven’t tried it yet. But the oil is for sauteing. You can probably water saute instead. Maybe add some Benson’s Table Tasty instead of salt.

    What muffin pan to use? Teflon is toxic. These sound delicious but won’t get crispy in muffin liners. Will they release from non non-stick pan if I brush it? Other ideas? Thanks, awesome sounding recipe, I’ve bookmarked half of your recipes in the last hour!❤

      Steve you can use stainless steel muffin pans but brush the pans with coconut oil. Allow the muffin pan to cool before releasing the samosa muffins from the pan. take a bread knife and run around the sides of the muffins first. Hope this helps.

      You could use ramikins. I make muffins in them.

        Can I use something other than muffin pan? I don’t have any I think I threw it away 😭

          Chelsea, bake it in a shallow baking pan until the edges are golden brown, then cut them up into squares.
