Samosa is a Fried or baked pastry with savory filling, usually potatoes and peas for the veggie version. (If you havent heard of Samosa yet, you need to head out to your nearest Indian restaurant today!) The filling/stuffing can be made several different ways and is very versatile.

Most days I dont make the fried Samosa. If I do, I end up baking mine. For a Quick version, I use the frozen uncooked whole wheat Roti dough. Its like frozen round pastry sheets, which I thaw, cut in half and proceed as in the video to make triangle samosas, by sealing the edges using a little water.

The other day, I wanted to eat something savory for breakfast, and hubbs was giving me that (I am bored with the usual breakfasts, can you surprise me) expression. So I looked in the refrigerator, took out the leftover stuffing, and proceeded to make some stuffed up french toasts with it! Vegan Savory French Toasts!

The batter is the Chilla batter(chickpea flour batter) which gives it a fritter coating, like a pan fried, stuffed Bread Pakora. You can also use any french toast batter, mix in salt, spices and chili. The other batter that we use is Oats, flaxmeal, almond milk.

Other delicious things you can make with the stuffing.. Stuff it in flat bread Paratha or Naan, or make veggie burgers out of it!

Potato Stuffing:

  • 2 teaspoons organic canola oil
  • 1 green chili chopped fine
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) coriander seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) fennel seeds optional
  • (Na) a generous pinch of asafoetida hing
  • 1/4 teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) turmeric haldi (Optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) garam masala powder/curry powder or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) amchur dry mango powder or Chaat masala powder(or add lemon juice to the potatoes when cooked)
  • 2 medium boiled potatoes. Mashed or cubed small.
  • 1/4 cup (36.25 g) green peas optional
  • 1/4 cup (4 g) chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) red chili powder or to taste

For Variations: Add a Tablespoon of chopped ginger garlic, and saute with the peas. Add a Tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves


    • Heat oil in a pan. When hot, add the cumin seeds, saute for a few seconds.

    • Add the fennel or coriander seeds and green chili. Mix for half a minute.

    • Add the asafoetida, turmeric, garam masala, mix, and add the peas if using, and cook for half a minute.

    • Add in the boiled potatoes, salt to taste. Cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes.

    • Add in the amchur or chaat masala, cumin powder, chili powder, cilantro. Mix well, taste, adjust salt and spice(my mom would add a load of red chili powder right about now).

    • Take off heat.

    • (You can also make this with uncooked(not boiled) potatoes. Add potatoes and peas together. Add 1/4 cup water and salt, mix and cook covered on low-medium for 14-16 minutes.

    • Mash the potatoes a bit, add the other spices and cook for another minute or so.)

    To Make French Toasts:


      • Mix 2/3 cup chickpea flour and add 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp rock salt(kala namak or Chaat Masala), 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste, 1/8 teaspoon asafoetida(hing, optional), 1 teaspoon oil, 1 teaspoon green chili paste or chili/cayenne powder, and about 2/3+ cup water and mix well to get a lump free thin-ish batter in a deep bowl. Or make your own favorite french Toast batter.

      • Take a bread slice. Mash the stuffing and pack it on top of one slice. Top with another slice. Dip the whole toast in the batter to coat well,

      • Pan fry with 2-3 teaspoons of oil, on medium heat, partially covered, 3-4 minutes each side.

      • Serve hot with ketchup, Cilantro chutney, sriracha, other sauces/chutneys of choice.

        How many sandwiches does this make?


        • Richa

          depends on the size of the bread and amount of stuffing. 3 to 4


      2. Angi

        Can you tell if these would taste ok at room temp or do they need to be served immediately? I realize they may not be crispy once they cool to room temp, but would they still be tasty? Thanks,


      3. Coco

        I just made this and it was amazing! i added onions, tofu, and cauliflower as well. then i made a quick curry ketchup. It was like a vegan Indian monte-cristo!


      4. JmeJo

        I don’t have chickpea flour handy… any suggestions on a substitute? I definitely want my french toast all crisp-ified like yours!


        • Richa

          use regular flour. the batter is thicker than usual french toast batter and it does not get as absorbed in the bread, so it crisps up on the pan if you cook longer.


        • JmeJo

          Awesome, thanks!


      5. Don't Get Mad, Get Vegan!

        This is amazing! I was looking for a way to use up leftovers and they lent themselves to this treatment perfectly. Thanks for always offering up such delicious inspiration!


      6. Chef Amber Shea

        This is insane, Richa. You are so innovative! Pinned. 🙂


      7. Manasvi

        I made this today and it was perfect for the blizzard-y day here in NYC! 🙂 I didn’t have chickpea flour, so I skipped that part. My Mom used to make this many times as a lunch box treat 🙂


      8. Corrin Radd

        I made this today and loved it. Great idea.


        • Richa

          Awesome! I am so glad you liked it!


      9. Elsa

      13. Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes

        I could eat this everyday, every meal of the week – this looks so good, I am not lying when I tell you my mouth is watering right know whishing I could just have a little taste of this!

        Nice work Richa – Vegan Chutney looks amazing!


        • Richa

      14. Vicky

        This sounds lovely!


      15. dassana

        whenver i make the bread pakora, i deep fry them. next time when i make these, i will try your method of pan frying them.

        congrats on vegan chutney and i wish that you get so many submissions that you hire more than ten people to work under you 🙂


        • Richa

          I havent started up my kadhia for frying in a long while. pan frying ona non stick is uses just a little oil and doesnt feel heavy.

          Thanks. I hope so. I’s love to get a steady flow of submissions!


      16. GiGi

        Oooh give savory french toast anyday. or is this now considered Indian toast? This baby rules!


        • Richa

          it has many names.. all delicious!


      17. Princy Vinoth

        looks fabulous and lovely!


      18. Hannah

        Richa! Your mind is a beautiful thing. Samosa wraps are a favorite, but somehow I never thought to translate that same concept into sandwich format. This is beyond amazingly delicious, I can’t even put to words how much I wish I had one of these right now!


        • Richa

          whip up one tomorrow!


      19. Spice up the Curry

        very innovative. you are brilliant richa.. very very very delicious breakfast. i will give it a try


      20. Akila

        Yummy yummy


      21. Veganosaurus

        Absolutely delicious!! I love potato stuffed grilled sandwiches and I looove bread pakoras. So you can imagine what this combination of the two is doing to me! All those pictures of the cross section are making me sooooo hungry (and I just ate lunch)!


        • Richa

          😀 that is why there are cross section pictures!:)


      22. anne

        I love samosas and this delicious samosa french toast makes me hungry !


      23. Jenny

        Hi Richa,
        Your samosa french toast looks so fresh. 🙂
        I don’t mind eat this every day. LOL.
        Thank you for sharing. 🙂
        You can submit your vegan samosa french toast pics on https://www.foodp* It is a food (and drink of course) photography site where members can submit all food (and drink of course (again) LOL ) pictures that make readers hungry.
        Well, you know it’s fun to make others hungry (and thirsty)! 😀


      24. Srimathi

        I think this is an awesome idea. I always make sandwiches with left over potato curry and cheese for my daughter. French toast is even better.


      25. Jennifer

        I have never seen this kind of French toast before… How creative and delicious!!


        • Richa

          Thank you Jennifer. salt and potatoes make my morning:)


      26. Jesse @ Happy Go Lucky Vegan

        What a genius idea! Sounds like the perfect all-in-one brunch meal!


        • Richa

          Thanks Jesse. Its easier than making a paratha, but similar enough to call it a brunch or meal:)


      27. Sangeetha

        Samosa stuffing + savory bread toast sounds very interesting…inviting pics dear!
        Thanks Richa for letting me know about Vegan Chutney, sure will submit my vegan pics!!

        • Richa

          Thanks Sangeetha!


      28. Kristy

        Samosas + French Toast = An extremely excited Kristy! This looks so awesome! We can have French Toast for dinner (a dream of mine). Yay!


        • Richa

          I know right. It is pretty much a meal !:) Let me know how it turns out.



        those samosas look so delicious! i love how it’s savory and not sweet! yummmm!


        • Richa

          Thanks Caralynn


      30. Gabby @ the veggie nook

        This recipe is so incredibly unique! I love the idea of savoury stuffed french toast! Genius my friend!


        • Richa

          Thanks Gabby! I love savory breakfast:)


      31. Caitlin

        i love how creative you are with stuffing french toast! i for sure have to make it for dayv soon 😉

        i’m also super excited for vegan chutney! i hope to be able to submit a photo(s) soon 😉 i made your dad’s aloo gobi last night and it was delicious! i ate THE WHOLE THING in one sitting :X i didn’t get a good picture of it, though (dayv was rushing me!). i plan on making it again this week(along with others) and then doing my indian meals post! speaking of, i really want to make you chana masala, but the recipe calls for a pressure cooker, which i don’t have. can i make it using another technique/cooking method?


        • Richa

          Awesome!:) yes, you can. if you use canned chickpeas, they will cook faster, or if you are soaking them, then let them soak for a day.
          Add double the water to the curry, add the chickpeas, and cover and cook on low heat for an hour or so, until they are tender. It will just take longer to cook in a regular covered pan. Pressure cooker takes about 15 minutes:)


        • Sue

          Dad’s aloo gobi is the best! (Was last night’s dinner too)!
