Chicken Samosa Instant Pot and Air Fryer Recipe:

Hello Foodies,
          This classic, crispy and flavorsome Indian snack is full of flavor and spices, and can be made in your instant pot and to get crispy edges fried in an air fryer! Biting into greasy fritters and samosas must be my one of the ultimate closet pleasures. But I must say, though, that after about one plate of onion fritters or 1 samosa, McDreamy takes over and I worry myself sick over the amount of grease I have consumed. Well, no more… Now, I have found a way to reduce the oily, greasy food, without compromising the taste and can satisfy my cravings for most of the Indian fried snacks. Making homemade chicken samosas in the airfryer is so much healthier than fast food or frozen samosas. Stuffing made with ground chicken and some Indian spices in instant pot and covering or pastry made using all purpose flour (you can use whole wheat flour too) and then air fried until golden-brown and crispy from outside. These also happen to be egg-free, so they are also great for kids with egg allergies. You can bake these samosas.
        Making stuffing for samosas in an instant pot is so easy to make and very tasty! And frying the samosas in an air fryer is not only a healthy and nutritious option but also I do not need to waste a whole bottle of cooking oil in the frying process. You will need only 30-45 minutes of preparation and cooking time for this super simple snack that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Here are some of my favorite Air Fryer Recipes:

            This samosa is now(because of the instant pot and air fryer) guilt-free comfort food. I like to invent recipes that are easy to make, but also needs fewer ingredients and not so hard on the budget. I have made this chicken samosas in my Go wise air fryer; you could make them in your oven too! Whenever I prepare ground chicken, leftover goes into my Parathas, Samosas, or into the empanadas. This Instant pot and air fryer Chicken Samosas are always winning in my house. 

Why I used Instant Pot to Cook Chicken here? Or why not stove top?
          Pressure cook function of an instant pot, cook food very quickly, that tender shredded chicken that you cook in the slow cooker takes 7-8 hours, but you will get the same result in just 10-15 minutes with an instant pot.
