These baked apple samosas are a great way to finish off your curry feast.
If you’re looking for something sweet, however, these apple samosas might be just what you’re looking for.
How to you prepare apple samosas?
You could use a traditional samosa wrapper, either homemade or shop-bought. In this recipe you use filo pastry which can be purchased at pretty much any supermarket. This makes everything a lot easier.
Then all you need to do is prepare the apple samosa filling. That too isn’t a difficult job. To finish, you wrap the cooled apple filling in the filo pastry and bake it.
This recipe is very convenient for a curry feast with friends.
Samosas are normally fried. That’s great when you are serving them to start off a meal. I don’t know about you but I don’t like deep frying things when I have eaten a dinner and consumed perhaps a little too much wine.
You can prepare these apple samosas ahead of time and then just place them in your oven to cook.
What do you serve apple samosas with?
Apple samosas are delicious on their own or with a scoop of ice cream. If you want to go all out, try my chocolate kulfi recipe and serve that with your samosas.
How long with these samosas keep in the fridge?
You can prepare your apple samosas a day or so ahead of baking.
Can you freeze apple samosas?
Yes. They freeze really well. Just let them defrost completely and then bake them as in the recipe.
Can you fry the samosas?
There is no reason why you can’t. Go for it if that is what you prefer.
Where is this recipe from?

- Allow the apple mixture to cool slightly and then cut the pastry into then equal sized rectangles.
- Place a spoonful of the apple mixture in the top left corner of one of the rectangles. Fold this over into a triangle and then fold again and seal. It is important the the triangular samosas are tightly sealed so that you don’t loose any of the filling when cooking.

- Remove and serve hot.
