How to Cook Air Fryer Frozen Samosas 

So I have to admit, I’m finding myself using my air fryer a whole lot more lately! Its rare to go more than a day or two without finding a use for it. Last night, I opted for a classic Indian finger food – samosas! Here I’ll walk thru how to cook air fryer frozen samosas.

Best Way to Cook Frozen Samosas in an Air Fryer

There are a bunch of different styles of samosas you can buy, even make yourself. Here I’ll cover just the two main store-bought frozen style; mini samosas and traditional. There is just a big difference between the two – the size. A traditional samsoa is sometimes as large as your hand! More of a meal than a snack.

I recommend air frying the minis straight out of the freezer. This makes them so simple and quick, a perfect spur of the moment snack idea. The larger traditional samosas seem to do better if you give them a few minutes to rest before air frying. This gives them the best results in my experience, don’t worry though, I cover all that in the instructions below.

Mini Frozen Samosas

I really enjoy the minis and will throw them together with other appys some nights. Best part about the minis is that they cook really fast!

There are a few different brands I can buy, and have found these ones are one of the best.

At only $4 a bag, you really can’t go wrong. They cook up perfect every time, just like you’d hope to get at a restaurant.
