Baked Sweet Potato And Pea Samoosas With A Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce

Add a review

Who can resist a spicy, piping-hot samoosa? In this healthy version of a classic South African snack, veggie-packed samoosas are made with light phyllo pastry, and baked rather than deep fried. Serve with a sweet, spicy dip made with fruit chutney and Knorr Sweet Chilli Salad Dressing.

Preparation time


500 g sweet potato, peeled & cubed
30 ml canola oil, plus extra for brushing
5 ml Robertsons ground coriander
5 ml Rajah medium curry powder
Robertsons black pepper
Robertsons Atlantic sea salt
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
1 packet Knorr thick Vegetable Soup
80 g peas, blanched
20 g fresh coriander, finely chopped
lemon juice
16 samoosa pastry strips
Sweet Chilli Dressing:
50 ml Knorr Sweet Chilli salad dressing
30 ml fruit chutney

Preparation method

Samoosa Filling
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Toss the sweet potato cubes with 15ml oil, Robertson’s Ground Coriander, Rajah Medium Curry Powder and Robertson’s Atlantic Sea Salt, and put on a lined baking tray. Bake in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes until soft and caramelised. Slightly mash and put aside to cool.
Heat 15ml oil in a pan over a medium heat, add the onion, garlic and chilli. Cook until soft and starting to gain some light colour. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Once all the filling has cooled, mix the sweet potato, onion-mix, Knorr Thick Vegetable Soup, peas and fresh coriander together. Season to taste with Robertson’s Atlantic Sea Salt, Robertson’s Black Pepper and lemon juice.
Prepping Samoosas
Cover the pastry with a slightly damp cloth while rolling.
Take about 30ml of the filling onto the edge of one strip. Fold the one corner diagonally across the filling to form a triangle. Continue folding that triangle along the strip. Brush the edge of the pastry with water and seal.
Cover made triangles with a slightly damp cloth.
Place all the samoosas on a greased, lined baking tray. Brush the samosas with canola oil and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden and crisp, turning half way.
Serve the samoosas with dipping sauce.
Sweet Chilli Dressing
Blend the Knorr Sweet Chilli Salad Dressing and fruit chutney together.
