This method not only offers a quick snack but also a healthier frying method by significantly reducing oil usage. The air fryer excels at cooking frozen food, making it crisp and delicious without the hassle of traditional deep frying. Perfect for when you want a quick, tasty bite without a lot of prep or cleanup.

What You Need

To prepare frozen samosas, you’ll need just a couple of items:

  • Frozen samosas – 1 package (usually contains about 12 samosas)
  • Optional oil for brushing – 1 tablespoon (to enhance crispiness)

Equipment:

  • Air fryer (any model that can accommodate the size of your samosas)

This setup ensures that you can achieve the best results with minimal effort and ingredients.

How to Cook Frozen Samosas in Air Fryer

Preparing the Air Fryer: Start by preheating your air fryer. Set it to 380°F to 400°F. This temperature range is ideal for ensuring your samosas get crispy without burning.

Arranging the Samosas: Place the frozen samosas in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Avoid overcrowding to ensure even cooking. If necessary, cook in batches.

Cooking Time and Temperature: Cook the samosas for 7 to 10 minutes. Halfway through, around the 3.5 to 5-minute mark, flip each samosa to ensure even browning and crispiness on all sides. You’ll know they’re done when they are golden brown and crispy to the touch.

Essential Note: Keep an eye on the samosas, especially if your air fryer model cooks particularly fast or if it’s your first time using it for this recipe. Adjust the cooking time slightly if needed. Remember, no additional oil is necessary unless you prefer an extra crispy texture, in which case a light brush of oil before cooking will do the trick.

Tips for Perfect Samosas

  • Achieving Perfect Crispiness: To ensure your samosas come out crispy, do not overcrowd the air fryer basket. Each samosa should have space around it for the air to circulate freely. This helps achieve an evenly cooked, golden crust. If you like your samosas extra crispy, consider using a light spray of oil on the samosas before you start cooking.
  • Best Brands of Frozen Samosas: For high-quality frozen samosas, I recommend brands like Trader Joe’s and Deep Indian Gourmet. Both offer samosas with rich flavors and authentic spices that cook well in the air fryer.

Serving Suggestions

Serve your air fryer samosas with a variety of dips to enhance the flavor. Traditional tamarind and mint-cilantro chutney are my favorites for a genuine taste experience.

For a simpler option, good old ketchup also pairs wonderfully with the spicy filling of the samosas.

By following these tips and suggestions, you can enjoy delicious, perfectly crispy samosas with complementary dips that bring out the best in this delightful snack.

Storage and Reheating

  • How to Store Leftovers: To store leftover samosas, let them cool to room temperature before placing them in an airtight container. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. For longer storage, freeze them on a baking sheet until solid, then transfer to a freezer-safe bag or container where they can be kept for up to three months.
  • How to Reheat: To maintain crispiness when reheating, avoid the microwave. Instead, reheat the samosas in the air fryer at 350°F for 3 to 5 minutes until they are heated through and the exterior is crispy again. If reheating from frozen, no need to thaw; just extend the reheating time by a few minutes.

These storage and reheating tips will help ensure your samosas remain delicious and crispy, ready to be enjoyed even days after cooking.
