Tips for making Gluten-Free Vegan Samosas:

  • Alternatively, red or yukon gold potatoes can be used in place of russet. Just make sure to cook until fork-tender.

  • Are you out of lemon juice? Apple cider vinegar can be used in its place in a pinch!

  • Are you on a sugar-free diet? The coconut sugar can be omitted altogether, or replaced with a sugar-free sweetener such as this one.

  • Alternatively, the coconut sugar can be replaced with any granulated or liquid sweetener of choice.

  • I have not tested this particular recipe with another flour, but I believe cassava flour would produce very similar results to the tapioca starch if you’re looking for an alternative.

  • You can roll/stretch the dough out as thinly or thickly as you prefer. Both produce a wonderfully textured crust.

  • These samosas can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. They can be reheated in a 350 degree oven until warmer throughout.

Ingredients

  • Samosa Filling:
  • 3 russet potatoes peeled + cubed
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 1 cup peas fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons oil of choice I use coconut
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves minced or grated
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or mint or a mix of both
  • 1/2 lemon juiced (or 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • sea salt to taste
  • Samosa Pastry Dough:
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions

  • In a large sauce pan or pot, cover potatoes and carrots with water until just covered. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until all is fork tender.
  • Add peas to potato/carrot mixture. Turn off heat, cover and let sit while you prepare the rest of the filling.
  • In a skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic & saute for 5 minutes, or until onions are turning translucent.
  • Drain your potato, carrot, pea mixture and return to the pan. Add garlic, onion and all spices. Mix and mash until the filling is as coarse or smooth as you prefer. I like it mostly smooth with a few potato chunks left in. Salt to your tastes. Let sit while you prepare the samosa dough.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a sauce pan heat water, oil and salt on high heat until boiling.
  • Pour in flour and baking powder and immediately vigorously stir until all liquid is absorbed (it will look a tad crumbly at this stage, but will come together). Let it cool for a few minutes before handling.
  • Place your samosa dough onto a parchment or wax paper lined cutting board. Knead until you can form one round ball.
  • Divide the dough ball into 8 smaller balls.
  • Using your hands or a rolling pin, roll and stretch each ball into one small round circle (about 4 inches across). This is a rubbery dough, but you’ll find it is relatively easy to work with. Don’t be afraid to stretch and pull.
  • Slice each circle in half to form 16 semi-circles.
  • Place a dollop of samosa filling into the center of each semi-circle.
  • Take one corner of the dough and stretch it across the filling.
  • Take the other corner and stretch it over the first layer of dough, forming little triangles. Press the edges down to seal the filling, if desired.
  • Brush each triangle with olive oil and place onto your prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until crispy and turning slightly golden, turning each samosa over halfway through cooking time.
  • Let cool before enjoying as is, with a favorite condiment or alongside other Indian dishes!
  • Enjoy.

    Hello Kristen! May I ask, will I be able to fry the samosas instead of baking them? I do not have an oven at home, will they still taste as nice if fried?

      Hi! I can’t say for absolute certain because I haven’t tested this recipe with any other starch, but I usually have good results replacing tapioca starch with rice starch in recipes, so if you were to try it, I would advise rice! Please let me know if you try it. 🙂 Thanks!

    Omg, yum! This looks AMAZING, Kristen! I follow a paleo-based diet, and I was wondering if sweet potato could be subbed for the russet potatoes. I can’t wait to give these a try!!

      Hi, Lucille – thank you! Yes, sweet potatoes would work beautifully in this recipe. 🙂

    Hi Kristen! Thanks for the amazing recipe. I’ve been looking for a healthier samosa recipe, and it looks like I’ve found it! I was wondering if I could substitute some chickpeas in for the potatoes. Maybe half potato and have chickpea? How do you think that would turn out, and how would you recommend cooking it? Thank you!

      Hi, Paula! I think chickpeas would work beautifully either as a full replacement or half & half. Assuming they are pre-cooked chickpeas, the only change I would make would be to simmer for 10 minutes instead of 15. I hope you like it! 🙂

    I’ve never eaten much Indian food. The spices were always a bit much for me, but these sound delicious. I can’t wait to give these a try. Do you serve these with any kind of a sauce?
