Rainy day and wanting to eat something super tasty with a cup of tea? Gujarati style vegetable samosa is a go to dish! Samosa are a deep fried or baked Indian savoury snack with a filling, the filling is mostly potatoes, onions, lentins, green peas and now a days people have started innovating and experimenting with samosa and use noodles, pasta or even paneer as the stuffing. Samosa are a popular snack and appetizer.
Samosas are from Punjab but we have our Gujarati style vegetable samosa, the recipe is a little complex yet worth it as it is extremely flavourful. We have made Gujarati style samosa covering with whole wheat flour instead of maida. Traditionally maida is used in making these Punjabi samosas. Further, the stuffing is made with first cooking the onions then adding the main ingredients like potatoes and green pease. Unlike other samosas, the Gujarati style vegetable samosa does not use boiled potatoes—here, raw potatoes are chopped and allowed to cook in oil and green peas and cooked. It would take 7-8 minutes for potatoes and green peas to cook once done we have added cabbage and ginger green chilli paste. We have also added sugar to give Gujarati samosa a twist. Further, we have added lemon juice. You can also add chat masala or amchur if you wish to. Lastly, some coriander for freshness. Thereafter, the prepared dough is used to make the patti’s for the samosa. The dough is divided equally and rolled in a thin roti then cooked on both sides not for more than 10 seconds both the side and then divided into 3 equal portions. Which would give us a patti, further the patti is folded into a cone which is stuffed with the aloo and green peas mixture sealed with maida slurry and deep fried.
These gujarati style samosa are different in taste and size as compared to the traditional samosas. The size is usually smaller and these Gujarati style vegetable samosa are crispier. Samosas are my family’s favourite, we cant resist samosa at any given point of the day. You can even bake or air fry them.

Samosa ( Gujarati Recipe) recipe with step by step photos
What is a Samosa? Think of the samosa as a tasty parcel! A cover of flattened dough wraps up a delectable stuffing, and the whole parcel is deep-fried or baked to perfection, to get a scrumptious snack.
The most common stuffing for samosa is cooked and roughly mashed potatoes, spiced up with varied Indian spices and spice powders. There are, of course, innumerable variants. Typical North Indian Samosa is conical in shape, packed with spicy cooked potatoes. The Punjabi Samosa is bigger and richer – literally bulky! It is obviously one of their favourite snacks as Punjabis are game to have samosas even for breakfast.
There are variants of samosas with different veggies – could be multiple veggies mashed together with the potatoes, single veg samosas, or different combinations of veggies without potato!
In South India, you will find onions dominating the stuffing, and the Samosa itself is smaller and flatter than what you see up North. Try the Onion Samosa. On the other hand, you can make Samosa Kadhi Chaat, which use raw bananas for the stuffing.
The Gujarati Samosa is quite different from the rest of the breed, because the stuffing is made of finely-chopped raw potatoes rather than cooked and mashed ones. The potato cooks in the oil, which gives it a rather different taste and mouth-feel. When in Hyderabad, you should taste the Lukhmi, which is a flaky version of the Samosa, with a spicy and rich taste.
You can make samosas with totally off-beat combinations of ingredients. Have you ever thought of making a Poha and Sprouted Vatana Samosa? Do try it! You can also make nice mini samosas like the Mini Spinach and Cheese Samosa, which are kind of bite-sized and easy to serve as starters and cocktail snacks. Get super local with the Rice Samosas, or go international with the Ravioli Samosa. When in a rush, look no further than the Jhatpat Samosa. Your choices are unlimited!
While we are at it, how can we forget the innumerable chaats and other interesting snacks made using the humble samosa, like the Samosa Chaat, Chole Samosa Chaat and Samosa Kadhi Chaat. You can also smash a tasty samosa into your sandwich, as in the Toasted Samosa Sandwich or Samosa Chips Sandwich.
Oh well, plain old samosa tastes awesomely good too, so you can just walk up to the vendor at the end of the street and enjoy a piping hot one with chutney at tea-time today!
