Baked Mango Samosas
These Baked Mango Samosas are subtly sweet from the fresh mango and nutty from toasted almonds, with a crispy baked phyllo wrap and a decadent fruit centre. A quick, easy, healthy and original mango dessert, perfect for picnics or potlucks.
It’s finally Friday (yay!), and I like to start posting desserts recipes on Fridays. As it’s the end of the week, we definitely all deserve a little sweet treat. Well, some of you are probably on vacation, but still, you deserve a little dessert. Really, there’s always an excuse for something sweet, right? Don’t you think it’s the best way to start a relaxed weekend? Well, I do!
If you’re thinking, “are samosas supposed to be sweet?”, then I got to admit that I’m not sure, but who cares! The basic idea is the same: Crispy phyllo pastry filled with deliciousness, so it’s really just the sweet samosa filling that’s different from what you’re used to.
I chose to bake my Mango Samosas, instead of deep-frying them, and you obviously understand why (hello, healthy samosas). Yet, these Baked Mango Samosas are still crunchy, no worries!
Also, I like the fact that you can totally control how much of these sweet samosas you eat: these triangle-shaped Baked Mango Samosas make portion control super easy! And if you just don’t care about calories all that, well you can still eat the whole tray of Baked Samosas, I won’t tell.
One last thing before you can finally see the Baked Mango Samosa recipe. The sweet mango filling is super yummy. It’s loaded with warming spices like cinnamon (that’s to be expected on my blog, right?), nutmeg, ginger and clove, along with toasted almonds.
Yes, I said toasted almonds, don’t skip that part when making these Baked Mango Samosas, because it makes all the difference. Check out this article if you don’t know how to toast nuts and almonds.
Luckily, I didn’t have to add any sugar to my sweet Mango Samosa filling because my mango was super ripe and very sweet. Learn how to choose the perfect mango thanks to this article.

Baked Mango Samosa
These Baked Mango Samosas loaded with a sweet, spiced mango and almond filling are subtly sweet from the fresh mango and nutty from toasted almonds, with a crispy baked samosa wrap and a delicately decadent fruit centre. A quick, easy, healthy and original mango dessert, perfect for picnics or potlucks.
For the filling:
- 1 mango peeled and cubed
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
- 1 pinch ground clove
- 1/4 cup sliced toasted almonds
- 1 tsp sugar or substitute optional, only if mango isn't sweet enough
For the dough:
- 6 phyllo dough sheets
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter melted
Preheat oven to 400F
In a medium bowl, add mango, spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove), sugar, if using, and toasted almonds. Combine carefully, paying attention not to break the toasted almonds. Set aside.
Using a knife, cut 4" wide phyllo dough stripes. Brush one side only with melted butter.
To form the samosa, layer two phyllo stripes, buttered side on the outside. Place approximately one heaping tablespoon of mango almond mixture on the phyllo stripes, and fold stripes into triangles (see that video for an example)
Place mango samosas on a Silpat or baking sheet, and bake them 10 minutes. Serve warm.
