I love eating Indian food wayyyyyyyy more than I love making it. It seems so much more complicated than, say, whipping up a batch of Fried Rice.

So when EatingWell™ frozen entrées reached out about their new frozen entrées, I immediately requested the Indian Inspired Chicken. I couldn’t wait to try it AND turn it into my favorite Indian appetizer, Samosas.

Finally, delicious Indian food on standby for all my cravings and deep-frying ambitions!

If you’ve never had a samosa before, they are basically little pockets of curry-flavored filling. They are traditionally made with potato and vegetables.

My version is made with chicken, rice, and vegetables. I just heated the Indian Inspired Chicken and used it as my filling for wonton wrappers. It’s basically 2-ingredient Samosas! So easy.

All EatingWell™ frozen entrées are made from whole grains, lots of vegetables, high-quality proteins, and without preservatives or artificial colors.

And obviously these Samosas were BEYOND delicious. My 22-month old ate 4 pieces herself in one fell swoop. I was able to make about 16 – 18 Samosas from one meal.

Quick before I forget, I made a dipping sauce. It’s totally up to you – spicy ketchup or chutney make great off-the-shelf dipping options. But if you want something really spectacular, try my Cilantro Mint Dipping sauce. Just blend a handful of fresh ingredients and you’re done!
