Samosa, the famous street side snack, usually have a thick outer covering to retain the shape and hold the stuffing, however that makes it difficult to bake properly. Hence i have rolled the outer covering thin. To instill a little crispiness i have added ½ tbsp of ghee to the dough. Baking takes a little longer but i believe it is worth every effort.

Tarla Dalal    You can try and use a microwave oven , it shall take a lot of time and may not get very crisp.

I tried it with a slight change and it turned out great. The little change was that I did not cook the cha patios on tava. Instead I directly made samosas of rolled chapatis, brushed them with olive oil and baked them in the oven till golden brown. It was very crispy and of course healthy too :)

Tried this out and somewhat not so much happy with it.It did not appear as shown in the picture and moreover who are so much diet conscious it is ok for them, but for the rest we will have to compromise with the taste.It is not giving that taste which we get from the samosas which are deep fried!
