Top ways to prep frozen samosas
The air fryer is a kitchen marvel that can transform your frozen samosas into crispy delights with minimal oil. Preheat your air fryer to the temperature on the frozen samosa’s box, arrange the samosas in a single layer, and spritz them with a bit of oil to enhance their crispiness. Cook according to packaging instructions until golden brown, then flip to ensure the other side is also perfectly cooked. Your samosas will emerge perfectly golden and ready to enjoy.
If you want to get to those samosas asap and need a quick fix or lunch, the microwave can be your go-to option. Place the frozen samosas on a microwave-safe plate and heat following packaging instructions, turning them over halfway through the cooking time. Voila! your samosas are ready. While you might not achieve the perfect ASMR worthy crisp, this method still gets the job done.

Baking your frozen samosas in the oven is another great option to achieve that perfect crispy texture. Preheat your oven to the specified degree on your frozen samosa packaging, place your frozen samosas on a baking pan, and place in the oven’s middle rack. Turn Samosas midway through to get the perfect crisp on both sides. Remove from oven and let stand for at least 2 minutes before serving (don't burn your mouth!). Your samosas should be beautifully browned and crispy.
If you aim for a slightly indulgent option, pan-frying your frozen samosas can create a wonderfully crispy exterior. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Place the defrosted samosas in the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until they develop a rich, golden color. The pan-fry method provides that delightful crunch while allowing the flavors to meld together.
Deep Fry Samosas
For the ultimate indulgence, deep frying frozen samosas results in an incredibly crispy and golden crust. Heat oil in a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pot to around 325°F (162°C). Carefully lower the samosas into the hot oil using a slotted spoon and fry until they are deep golden brown, usually taking about 7-9 minutes. Drain on paper towels before enjoying.
Bonus Method: Samosa Chaat
Transform your samosas into a delightful samosa chaat, a popular Indian street food. Heat the frozen samosas using your preferred method, then cut them into bite-sized pieces. Arrange them on a plate and top with chopped onions, tomatoes, green chilis, cilantro, tamarind chutney, yogurt, and a sprinkle of chaat masala. This fusion of flavors creates a delicious and satisfying dish.
