The good old aloo samosa with its crunchy papdi has always been there – from comforting you on dull monsoon evenings to being the best friend to your chai. But at times, making the same potato-stuffed samosa recipe can get boring. Not to mention the guilt of calories that all that potato and deep-frying brings along. Thankfully, this doesn’t mean you have to give up on your love for this all-time favourite evening snack. The next time those samosa cravings kick in, ditch the potato filling samosa recipe and get creative with some of these samosa filling ideas instead. And why limit your samosa to savoury when you can easily turn samosa into a sweet dish too. These samosa recipes will show you how. Happy eating!


It’s what’s on the inside that counts! Sneaking vegetables in the samosa filling not only helps up the health quotient of your samosa recipe but also adds nutritional value to your kid’s meal. For the samosa filling, make sure you chop the vegetables finely. Remember to dry the chopped vegetables before using as stuffing so that you are not left with a soggy samosa.

You can also throw in a few olives, jalapenos and sauces of your choice to bring an international twist to your samosa recipe. Don’t forget, the more the cheese, the better.

What’s fishy?

There’s no better way to turn your love for seafood into something even better than a filling for your crunchy samosa. You tweak around your classic samosa recipe with any fish, sauces, spices or herbs of your choice and make your version of a non-veg samosa. Make sure to cook and debone your fish before mashing it into a filling. Tip: Fish samosas taste even better when paired with some spicy mint chutney.
