Bite sized Low Fat Non-Fried Samosa Cups - Perfect Appetizer

Bite sized Low Fat Non-Fried Samosa Cups - Perfect Appetizer

Reposting as Blogger seemed to have lost my post.
This post was in drafts since February, made this for a play date for my first grader at home, you see with  my elder one we had a close group of friends and play dates were regular, it was a chance to meet up with parents in similar boat, talk about classes and various other activities  and just dealing with pains of being a first time parent, come second one he practically had been begging to call his classmates for a play date, trust me I know its unfair but hey I don't have the same level of enthusiasm second time on :).

So finally invited his friends over for a playmate and made these as appetizers, so here goes the recipe.

Ingredients - Today's recipe makes for about 12
Phyllo dough sheets - I brought the rectangular ones found in Indian stores

2 cups of boiled/canned garbanzo beans
1 cup peas & carrot frozen or fresh
1 big red onion sliced thin
2 medium sized potatoes cubed
2-3 green chilies - adjust according to taste
Dry spices
1 tbsp of fennel seeds
1 tbsp of corriander/dhania seeds
1 tbsp of chat masala
1 tbsp of coriander and cumin powder (optional)
1/2 tbsp of Amchur (dry mango powder)
salt according to taste

1. Carmalize finely sliced onions till they turn brown and keep aside.
2. Heat a pan add tbsp of oil, when hot add fennel,coriander, and cumin and coriander powder, saute for few seconds.
3. Now add all the vegetables  and add chaat masala, amchur and salt.Mix till all the masala's are well incorporated.

4. Spray cupcake pans with non-stick spray
5. Now place the phyllo dough in cupcake mould and make into a cup.
7. Now Add the filling to the Phyllo cups

8. Top with  caramelized onions

9. Pre heat over to 350 degrees and when ready place these Phyllo cups/pockets and bake for about 5 minutes after 5 minutes change the setting to broil and let the top caramelize.
Please adjust according to your oven setting, Phyllo dough gets burnt very quickly so keep a close watch.
Serve hot with ketchup, these cups reminds me samosa's we get  in theaters and on railway stations in south the dry kind, I used to love them as a kid and this came very close to the taste.

Well play date was fun kids and parents sure did enjoy theses appetizer.
