Baked Samosa With Wheat Flour


baked samosa
Hubby loves samosa, but I always make sure he never has it. Yes, you may call me devil, but I really do not want him to serve him with any deep-fried stuff merely for his love for samosa.
So I decided to surprise him with a baked samosa instead, that too made of whole wheat flour, little suji, and besan. I must accept that there is a difference between wheat and maida. Maida (all purpose flour) tastes better but it isn't the healthiest option. So I tried with wheat, as I am watching our food intake closely.
Hubby's response "theek hai."
My baked samosa tastes good, though it may not be the best, as we get from the halwai or its fried alternative. But since health comes first, taste can wait!

Let's bake samosa now.
Knead the dough once again and make small balls. Take one ball and flatten it like a chapati. Cut into two halves and then fold one side over the other, as shown in the pic.
Add the filling and follow the same process with the rest of the dough.
Preheat oven (microwave convection mode) at 180 degrees for 8 mins.
Meanwhile, brush the samosa with oil as they are preparing to go into the oven.
Grease the tray and place the samosas over it.
Bake for 12 mins.  Then open the oven and turn the side of the samosas and bake for another 12 mins (may take more or less).

Keep an eye on your samosas.
Enjoy baked samosa guilt free with coriander or tamarind chutney.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?
