Baked Aloo Samosa – Low calorie

Every time it rains, I crave for samosa accompanied by a strong Indian tea but It’s not raining here and I don’t need an excuse to enjoy yummy baked aloo samosa 🙂

There are many versions of samosa, it can be vegetarian, none vegetarian, and it can also be sweet.

Yes! Sweet samosas do exist and they’re usually stuffed with dried fruit, shredded coconut, and some sweet spices like cardamom, but I’ll leave that for another post.

These baked samosas are delicious but of course tastes a little different from the fried ones, that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy the flavor.

If you’re eating healthy and looking after your weight, you have to understand that potatoes are not your enemy.

Potatoes are healthy vegetables and can aid in losing weight, by suppressing your appetite for longer time. Not only that, but potatoes have many nutrients. If you still have bad thoughts about potatoes please read this:

One medium potato (5.3 oz) with the skin contains:

  • 45 percent of the daily value for vitamin C
  • More potassium (620 mg) than even bananas, spinach, or broccoli
  • 10 percent of the daily value of B6
  • Trace amounts of thiamine, riboflavin, folate, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, and zinc

…and all this for just 110 calories and no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

This information and more can be found at Potato Goodness, I hope you change your mind about this healthy vegetable.
