Chicken tikka samosa are our favourite Ramadan treat! This recipe is also the perfect excuse to use any leftover chicken tikkas from last night. Samosas can either be deep fried to get that authentic taste or baked or air-fried if you are watching your calorie intake.
Samosas are fried or baked pastry which has savory or sweet fillings in it. There are different ways you can fold a samosa. Most popular ones include the triangles, moon shaped or boxed. You can either make the wrapping pastry from scratch or use ready made sheets. And of course, making samosas is a breeze if you use readymade samosa patty sheets!
These samosas are different from the Indian Punjabi samosas and are made using ready made samosa sheets. The filling can be prepared earlier and the samosas can be shaped and kept frozen too. That ways you will always have a batch whenever you are in need of making a quick snack!
