Baked puff pastry samosas make for an easy and absolutely delicious samosa alternative. You can also make them as pinwheels or the traditional samosa shape.

Samosas can be dipped in a variety of chutneys or dipping sauces!

After recently binge watching the Great British Baking Show Holiday seasons I had this idea. In the show, they make a sausage wreath and immediately I thought, I need to make a samosa version!

So, my version includes cilantro chutney on the inside baked with the samosa filling. This gives even more flavor to the bite! Usually, samosa is served with a sweet and savory chutney. So, for the holidays I used cranberry chutney. You can serve it with the more traditional tamarind date chutney (imli chutney) as well. I also have a tamarind sauce as an option.

Tip: Samosas are always a hit at parties for all age groups. You can make the filling and chutney ahead of time, making this very easy to make the day of a party.

Ingredient Notes

  • Potatoes – peel and cut very small. As these are not boiled before hand (they cook during bake), the smaller they are the better.
  • Puff pastry – don’t forget to defrost. My favorite way is to move the puff pastry from the freezer to the fridge the night before I make this. Then I take it out when ready.
  • Garlic – I added a little garlic for some flavor but usually this is not included in samosa filling and it is completely optional.

Making the Puff Pastry Pull Apart Samosa Wreath

  1. Make chutneys (see below for links)
  2. Make samosa filling
  3. Fill and fold puff pastry wreaths
  4. Bake

What do I serve it with?

Samosas are usually served with a savory cilantro or cilantro mint based chutney and a sweet chutney such as imli (tamarind) ki chutney, date chutney, apple butter chutney etc.

For this bake, I served it with cranberry chutney. The cranberry chutney is sweet and tangy and provides great balance for a holiday appetizer. There is cilantro chutney inside.

I love samosas with a cup of masala chai!

      • Spread a layer of cilantro chutney or cilantro mint chutney down center of rolled out puff pastry sheet.

      • Bring sides together and enclose the samosa filling. Where the puff pastry closes, press lightly together. Flip the roll so the seam where the roll is closed is on the bottom. Bring ends of the roll together to form a circle. Cut 2 inch slices around the circle from 2/3 of the bottom of the wreath edge. Keep the inner circle of the wreath connected, do not cut that part.

      • Pick each slice of samosa and slightly turn out facing in one direction. Brush the puff pastry with a light coat of milk to help it brown.
        3-4 tbsp milk
        Samosa wreath pieces turned out and laid on a parchment lined pan to bake.
