Whole food samosas (Gluten free)


Whole food samosas

This is such a special recipe. Samosas are one of those spectacular Indian foods that is often deep fried – and not necessarily great for the body. Gluten Free Vegan girl has come up with an oil free, gluten free and more importantly, whole food samosa recipe. And it’s good. Really good!

What surprised me was that I made a batch and had heaps of left over filling so I put the rest in puff pastry (knowing my kids love anything in pastry!) and both of them preferred the buckwheat version! I was stoked. So grab yourself some brown rice flour, buckwheat flour and flaxseed or chia. They don’t look spectacular but the taste it!


  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseeds (I used chia)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water

Sweet potato & green pea filling:

  • 4 heaped cups cubed sweet potatoes, with or without peel                 (I added in some carrot etc too)
  • 2 cups green peas or lentils (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 yellow onions, chopped
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • a few tbsp water

Spices, to taste:

  • garam masala
  • red curry powder
  • ground ginger
  • garlic powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • cumin

Head over to gluten free vegan girl‘s site for the instructions on how to make. Brilliant recipe.

  1. This is SOOOOO exciting!! I love samosas and the thought of not having them again (or at least not having a good one) is very sad.

  2. These look wonderful, might sub in a little chickpea flour too 🙂

  3. Happy to have stumbled across this! Thanks for sharing. Question, what is the purpose of the rice flour? Will buckwheat not form a dough properly without it?

    • Hi Christina! Sorry to have missed your comment…! Buckwheat will form a dough for sure. My understanding is that rice flour adds crispiness…though I haven’t tried it both ways to be sure.
