Leftover samosas are a great treat too; you just need to figure out the appropriate procedure to reheat them.

Best Way to Reheat Samosa

The best way to reheat a Samosa is to reheat them in an oven or stovetop. An oven allows the interior of the Samosa to reheat without affecting the crispiness of the external layer.

A stovetop might be very useful too, since we can slightly fry the Samosas, which would, in turn, make it crunchier.

Can You Reheat Samosa in an Oven?

Yes, it is indeed a very good idea to reheat your Samosa in an oven. Preheat your oven at 350F, place parchment paper on the baking dish, put the samosas on the paper, and heat them for 5-10 minutes. You need to turn the samosas in between to make sure they are evenly heated.

Cut one or two samosas into half to check whether the interior filling is warmed up properly or not.

Can You Reheat Samosa in a Microwave?

If you don’t mind a soggy, mushy, or soft samosa, then you can opt for this option. However, if you have a grill option available in your microwave, then you need not fear the chance of them being soggy or soft. The grill option would instead make them crispy and brown.

It only takes a minute or two to reheat them in a microwave.

Can You Reheat Samosa on the Stove?

Samosas can be reheated on the stovetop. Select a non-stick pan, heat on medium flame, add a little bit of cooking oil (optional), place the samosas on the pan, cover with a tin foil or lid, make sure to leave a little space when you cover the pan so that the moisture is allowed to escape and it doesn’t make the samosas soggy.

Leave them for 3-5 minutes, and your samosas are ready to be eaten!

Can You Reheat Samosa on a Grill?

If you like to add a smoky or barbecued flavor to your Samosa, then the grill is your option. Just place them on the grill and heat each side for a couple of minutes. Adding a few vegetables to your barbecued Samosa is also a delicious option.

Can You Reheat Samosa in a Toaster Oven?

Yes, since it is quite similar to an oven, you can reheat your samosas in a toaster oven too. Take out your favorite baking dish, place a baking sheet upon it, put the samosas on the tray and heat for 5-10 minutes at 350 F. Let the rest of the Samosa for a few minutes before you eat them.

Enjoy with some tomato sauce or chutney.

Can You Reheat Samosa in an Air Fryer?

 It is again a good idea to reheat your Samosa in an air fryer. Preheat your air fryer at 350F, place the samosas in the basket, make sure they do not overlap each other, spraying a bit of oil helps to make them crunchy, and finally, heat the samosas in the fryer for 5-6 minutes.

You need to turn the samosas halfway through the reheating process to make sure they are reheated evenly.

How to Reheat Samosa Without Overcooking?

Adhering to the above procedures, the temperature and duration play an important role in defining whether the Samosas are overcooked, undercooked, or perfectly cooked.

Make sure you do not hurry through the procedure, and remember to check the samosas midway through the process of reheating so that they do not get burnt.

How Long to Reheat Samosa?

The device typically decides the duration of the reheating process. Some devices require a bit more time than others to reheat the samosas. For instance, an oven and toaster oven require more time as compared to a grill, stovetop, and microwave. However, on average, the reheating process requires about 5-10 (may vary slightly depending upon the device).

You should be careful about the time since exceeding the required time may lead to overcooking your Samosa.

What Temperature is Needed to Safely Reheat Samosa?

The ideal temperature to reheat your Samosa is 350F, regardless of the device. A food thermometer might be useful to determine the temperature of the reheated samosas and whether they are edible.

The temperature should always be checked so that your samosas do not get burned during the reheating process.
