Baked samosa
Don`t we all love munching on fried food? And isn`t keeping off fried food the bane of a weight watcher? If this is your problem too, here`s help.

We show you how you can revamp your favourite fried foods so they can be enjoyed guilt-free. Bake your samosas, shallow fry your patties and grill your chicken, and enjoy the taste without worrying about piling on pounds.




Ingredients:
2 - potatoes (boiled and peeled)
1 cup - peas (boiled)
15 to 20 - fillo pastry sheets
1 tsp - cumin seeds
1 tsp - fennel seeds (optional)
1 tbsp - cashewnuts (broken)
2 - green chillies (adjust according to taste)
1 tsp - oil
1 to 2 tbsp - butter (melted, for brushing)
Salt to taste

Method:

Prepare the potato peas mixture by frying cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cashewnuts and finely chopped green chillies in a teaspoon of hot oil and then adding the potatoes and peas with salt.
Mix well and keep aside.
Brush a sheet of fillo with melted butter.
Fold it vertically at the center into a rectangle. Brush with butter.
Place 2 tablespoons or potato peas mixture in one corner and fold into a triangle.
Keep folding triangularly through the rest of the sheet.
Stick the edges with a little water.
Brush the top with melted butter.
Repeat for the remaining fillo sheets. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees (Fahrenheit) for 10 minutes.
Flip the samosas and bake for another 10 minutes until golden brown.
Serve fresh with tomato sauce or tamarind chutney
