Samosa Pockets

Samosa Pockets are a delicious, crispy and flaky pastry made with readymade sheets and a potato, peas and peanut suffing.

For the second day of Special Theme I have another recipe from my Sindhi Thali . These Samosa Pockets are not something truly Sindhi , but I have used a stuffing that mom used to prepare for Aloo Tikkis . The Aloo Tikkis were mom’s signature dish and she would make them every time there were guest . So while making these samosas , I used mom’s recipe of the stuffing .

The crust is the ready made samosa sheets that I get from Big Basket . I love these sheets as they are super easy and handy to use , besides they make absolutely crisp crust for any kind of patty . There are many ways to use these sheets and these Samosa Pockets is just one of them .

The pockets are very easy with folding and even a kid can make them without any difficulty . One just has to lay a sheet vertically , and another one over it horizontally , thus making a cross . The stuffing is placed on the center and then the sheets are folded and sealed with all purpose glue . The best part of these pockets is that you can make them ahead and freeze them , remove them just before frying , there’s no need to thaw them either .

If you do not want to fry these just brush them lightly with oil and bake them . You can even use a air fryer , like I have done . These pockets make a wonderful party or a rainy day snack . Serve them with some spicy green chutney and a cup of Elaichi wali Chai and you sure are to love the crispy , crunchy pockets .

  1. Wow! I cannot take my eyes off the thali picture. Each one is unique in its own right and tempting as well. These samosa wrappers are God send for sure. They look perfect.
