Samosa Pie - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

Looking for a way to spice up your midweek dinner? If you love Indian inspired flavours as much as we do, you’re going to be obsessed with this Samosa Pie! 

Hearty, healthy and delicious, it’s packed with veggies and bursting with fragrant flavours. Similar to the vegetable samosas that you can get from the takeaway, this pie has a filling made from potatoes, carrots, peas and onions, cooked in a tasty blend of spices.

Traditional samosas are deep fried to give the pastry a lovely crunch, although this also ramps up the calories. Instead, we’ve used light filo pastry and baked the whole thing in the oven – you’ll get that satisfying crispy bite, for only 272 calories per serving. 

Making one big pie rather than individual portions means this Samosa Pie is so versatile! It looks impressive served up on the dinner table as a welcome change to your usual pie – or why not slice it into smaller pieces and serve as a side dish for Fakeaway night? The flavours will perfectly complement your favourite curry!

What diets is this Samosa Pie suitable for?

This Samosa Pie can be enjoyed on vegan, vegetarian and dairy free diets. This recipe can also be made gluten free as long as you check that the filo pastry you are using is gluten free. 

As always, take extra care when cooking for people with allergies and be sure to use different utensils, cookware and preparation areas.

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Samosa Pie recipe?

Weight Watchers’ new PersonalPoints plan calculates each individual’s Points allowance based on their unique food preferences and goals. This means we’re no longer able to offer exact WW points for our recipes.

The good news is that all of our recipes are still Weight Watchers friendly! If you have any questions about your Points budgets or you’re unsure how a certain recipe will fit into your plan, please reach out to Weight Watchers directly.

Do you need any special ingredients to make Samosa Pie?

Nope! All the ingredients you need should be easy to find in your usual supermarket. You will need a pie dish or oven dish to make this recipe. We’d recommend using a 24cm dish.
