Whether you’re expecting a large number of guests for dinner or simply preparing an after-school snack for your kids and their friends, you can’t go wrong with samosas! Take inspiration in one – or all – of the samosa stuffing ideas below and you can guarantee yourself exceptional flavors in no time! And the best part is you’ll only need one homemade samosa dough throughout the whole process!

Step 1: Prepare the samosa dough

In a bowl, combine 2 cups of flour with ¼ cup of vegetable oil and salt. Gradually add 6 tablespoons of water and knead until you get a firm dough. Cover and set aside until you prepare the fillings.

Step 2: Prepare 5 different fillings

  • Filling 1: Healthy and nutritious corn and green peas samosa
    Heat ¼ cup of olive oil in a pan. Add 4 teaspoons of cumin and cook until aromatic. Add 2 chopped large-sized onions and sauté until translucent. Add 1 can of California Garden sweet corn, 1 can of California Garden green peas, 4 teaspoons of garam masala and 3 tablespoons of lime juice. Cook for 1 minute until liquids evaporate.
  • Filling 2: Delicious high protein tuna samosa
    Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a pan and sauté 2 chopped large-sized onions until translucent. Transfer to a bowl, then add 2 cans of California Garden tuna, 8 crushed cloves of garlic and a handful of parsley. Season with salt and black pepper and mix ingredients until combined.
  • Filling 3: Fiber loaded fava beans samosa
    In a bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley, 2 cups of California Garden fava beans, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 crushed garlic clove, 2 chopped large-sized onions, 1 teaspoon of cumin and ½ a teaspoon of black pepper.
  • Filling 4: Indian inspired chicken samosa
    Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan and sauté 1 chopped medium-sized onion until translucent. Add 1 chopped tomato. Season with chili powder, garam masala, red chili powder, onion powder, turmeric and black pepper. Cook for 2 minutes then add 1 cup of cooked minced chicken and ½ cup of California Garden mushrooms. Add 2 tablespoons of ginger garlic paste and season with salt. Stir ingredients then add a handful of chopped coriander. Simmer for 2-3 minutes and turn off the heat. Leave aside to cool before stuffing the samosas.
  • Filling 5: Mouthwatering cheesy samosa
    Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan and add 1 teaspoon of ginger garlic paste. Cook for 1 minute then add ¼ cup of chopped green onions and ¼ cup of chopped green bell pepper. Cook until tender, then remove from heat and add ½ cup of crumbled feta cheese and ½ cup of California Garden corn. Season with black pepper and chili pepper to taste.

Step 3: Fill the samosas

To fill the samosas, knead the samosa dough on your working surface. Cut into equal-sized triangles. Add 1 tablespoon of stuffing at the center of the dough and seal well.

Step 4: Cook or Store

Now that your samosas are stuffed and ready, you can choose to cook them directly or simply store them for later. Deep fry in hot oil until golden, bake in a preheated oven at 180 Degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes or simply store in sealed boxes and freeze until cooking time.
