Sweet Potato Samosas are an unconventional appetizer that refashion an iconic Indian dish. Replacing the usual ingredients with a few unusual vegetables, this dish provides an east-meets-west vibe.

Blogger tuned cookbook author Charmain Christie is the brilliant mind behind 'The Messy Baker' cookbook. Among the various recipes for amateur cooks and matured chefs, Christie lists this recipe for Sweet Potato Samosas. While the traditional samosa is made from fried or baked dough, this recipe utilizes phyllo instead.

These Indian-inspired pastries are filled with sweet potatoes, cauliflower, grated ginger, as well as other vegetables and spices. Sweet Potato Samosas are topped with black sesame seeds and served right out of the oven. These samosas make a great pre-meal bite or on-the-go snack.
