Mini Samosa cocktail bags

Crunchy on the outside and savory-spicy and juicy on the inside. A perfect samosa in a bite size, great as a cocktail or mock tail snack. And look so adorable. VeggieSamosaBags4-SimiJois

It all started with frozen peas. I wanted to have a quick lunch and got out some frozen peas, as I looked at the beautiful peas. I just placed them in a green bowl to take some pictures. I added my spices and made some masala peas and was thinking about samosa. I have no idea how these happened, before I knew it I was working wild in the kitchen and had quite a few of these cuties ready.

These are great cocktail or mocktail snacks, that you can prepare ahead of time and freeze it and fry them later. It’s super cute and bite size. I just fell in love with them, crunchy shell, soft insides, just like a samosa. You cannot bake them,  I tried it and it was very uneven baking all round, so I do not recommend that. For everything else let’s count calories but not for dessert or samosa. It’s really not worth it.

About the stuffing, you can add anything, potatoes, peas, carrots, paneer, cheese…bacon ! Take your pick.

Really picture heavy post again !! Someone take my camera away, I just can’t help taking pictures and then sharing it with you guys :)

Ilva & Sophia  and I planned to do a monthly post of appetizers for April. Do check out their blogs and see what an amazing treat they have in store for you. Being super busy girls, they were a few weeks late :)

  1. this looks amazing Simi.. Perfect for party too

  2. wow thats a quick one and love the frozen peas shot

  3. They look wonderful! Great choice of filling.



  4. Looks soooper interesting I think the same can be done by baking them in muffin pans

    1. Revathi : tried baking them in muffin pans, it did not bake that well. All the folds were raw and the top brown. I don’t recommend it. If you try and are successful let me know.

  5. These little samosa money bags look so incredibly moorish and addictive. I have no self control when it comes to savoury snacks like these.. so they definitely would not last for very long if I was to make the recipe!

  6. This is the best place (blog) for vegetarian recipes, hands down! Lordy Lord! academy-award winning worthy photography and yum factor all over :)

    I can eat a boatload of Samosas!
