Apple Samosas

Sharing is caring!

These baked apple samosas are a great way to finish off your curry feast.

Who doesn’t love a good samosa? Samosas are an excellent way to start off a meal. You might like to try my chicken or beef samosas if savoury samosas are one of your favourites too!

If you’re looking for something sweet, however, these apple samosas might be just what you’re looking for.

I had to put a little leftover blueberry custard on this from my blueberry samosas.

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?

I tried a similar recipe while in Sri Lanka a few weeks ago. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Apple Samosas
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 medium apples – cored and peeled
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 roll of ready make shortcrust pasty
  • 1 egg - beaten

  4. Chop your apples into small pieces and pour them into the sugar/butter mixture.
  5. Add the cinnamon and add the one tablespoon of water. Cover the pan and cook until the apple pieces are soft but not mushy.
  6. Mix the cornflour with the two teaspoons of water and stir to combine. Pour this into the apple mixture. This will thicken the apple stuffing.
  7. Allow the apple mixture to cool slightly and then cut the pastry into then equal sized rectangles.
  8. 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.

  10. Remove and serve hot.
