Easy Crescent Samosa (Indian Style Sandwiches)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Easy to make baked version of the delicious filled Indian sandwiches. Vegetarian, mild and so simple. Make it spicier if you wish by adding more curry powder or a bit of cayenne. I adapted this from a Pillsbury bake-off winning recipe. Great snack, appetizer, or main dish! Serve with this yummy honey sauce!

These were very easy to make and had an excellent flavor in the spicing! The dipping sauce was delicious and was as popular as the traditional tamarind and cilantro chutneys. Definitely a keeper. Thanks, Sarafish!

Really tasty and very easy for this novice. Only thing - the dough was somewhat hard to work with and my crescents were more like blobs! But they tasted great!

My mom made these last night per my suggestion and they turned out pretty good. I think a homemade fried shell would have tasted better, and we ended up dumping the honey sauce because it was too sweet. We may make this again, but would need to find a better dipping sauce (indian restaurants typically have chutney accompanying it so may give that a try).
