Puff Pastry Samosas

Need even more options for what to do with your puff pastry? How about something savory and AMAZING? Samosas are normally fried, but if you use puff pastry instead, they can be baked. Does that make them healthier? No, puff pastry is mostly butter…but still. They are a quick way to make samosas that taste very close to authentic. Yum! I found the recipe on Life’s Ambrosia.

Read on for the recipe and photos…


1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup frozen mixed peas and carrots
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 cup water
Enough puff pastry to make an 12″ x 18″ rectangle
1 egg, beaten
non-stick spray


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • In a pan, brown ground beef over medium heat. While cooking use a spoon to make the pieces of beef as small as possible. Transfer cooked beef to a colander on top of a bowl to strain grease.
  • In the same pan you browned the ground beef, heat olive oil over medium heat (you may not need oil if the beef is not over 80% lean). Add onion and frozen peas and carrots. Cook 3 minutes.
  • Return ground beef to the pan. Stir in cumin, kosher salt, turmeric and garam masala.
  • Pour water over the top and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes or until water is absorbed. Stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

  • Roll puff pastry into a 18″ x 12″ rectangle. Cut into 8 even rectangles.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of mixture in the center of each rectangle. Fold one side over the top of the filling and bring it to the other side. Use a fork to press down edges to seal.
  • Brush each samosa with egg wash. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray, or grease with butter. Place filled samosas on the prepared sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve hot. Makes 8 small samosas. 3 are enough for a full meal!
