Baked samosas | TummyKhush


This is one of those recipes that came to me just by chance. We had a left over Aloo curry (the one that is normally eaten with pooris) in the house. And then hubby said why not make some samosas out of them.

Samosas as a snack have always scared me for two reasons:

1. You use Maida to make it which in my book is a strict no-no
2. Deep frying which again… well what can I say.

Then hubby says, why don’t you use the OTG to bake the samosas and use whole wheat flour instead of Maida. I wasn’t very convinced but nevertheless went ahead and the results are for you to see.

Since this recipe is a bit elaborate, I would be dividing the making into 3 steps:

1. Making the covering for the samosas.
2. Making the stuffing for the samosas
3. Assembling and baking the samosas

Tofu/ Bean Curd Tikkas (Medley of Tofu and veggies marinated in curd sauce) | TummyKhush


All of us must have tasted paneer tikka at some time or the other. And it is quite a hit with most people as a starter. With the amount of fat paneer has, it becomes quite an indulgence for weight watchers. Tofu or bean curd is a better subsitiute for paneer. It is quite similar in texture and colour to paneer. It is supposed to be quite healthy also. So if you have tofu avialble in your supermarket, you should give it a try.

In this recipe, I have used the basic principle of marinating the Tofu as we do to paneer, along with other vegetables like capsicum and tomato. I then broiled them in my OTG till done. You can do it in the microwave or a tawa too. I used the leftover marinade as a side for dipping the tikkas in. Try it. It is really good as an evening snack or a stater. It is also a good way  to get kids to eat healthy food.

Here is how I made it:

For the marinade:

Thick curd: 1/2 cup
Salt : to taste
