  • Take them out and let them cool for a minute. Vegetable Puff Pastry Samosa is ready!

Notes

Add lemon juice if you don't have amchur powder. You can also add chopped onions to the filling. 
The stuffing for this vegan samosa recipe can be prepared in advance and refrigerated. It stays good for 4-5 days.
In fact, you can freeze even the stuffed puff pastry and bake them fresh as and when needed. 
Be liberal while adding the filling but ensure you are able to close it properly. Add grated cheese along with the filling to make cheesy samosa puffs. 
Make and eat them warm and fresh. But if gone cold, you can reheat them in the microwave. 
Can you make another filling?
The traditional vegetable samosa is prepared only with mashed potatoes and green peas. 
So you can make Potato Samosa or Aloo Puffs using this same recipe minus the mushrooms. 
Also, Instead of mushroom curry, you can make samosas using any other veggies, soy, or tofu. 
Can you give it any other shape?
Yes. That is the beauty of working with puff pastry sheets. You can shape them as you want.
You can make a samosa pie using this filling, shape them as pinwheels or give it any other shape.
Or you can make them the traditional way. Prepare a plain dough, roll them into small circles.
Then stuff them with the filling and then shape them as triangles. Then fry or bake them. 
Can you eat this the next day?
Yes, you may enjoy these vegan baked samosas the next day as well. Just heat it up in the microwave.
However, it tastes the best when eaten freshly baked.
