Soya Mince Samosa Recipe | Vegan Keema Samosa | Soya Keema Samosa | Easy Vegan Samosa Recipe

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

Whenever I make my Keema Samosa recipe, I make this vegan version for my son and he loves them! They are such a great substitute for vegans who miss their meat!

One of my secrets is to add a touch of Marmite to the soya mince when soaking it to give the mince more umami. Give this recipe a go and see what you think. You could even give it to someone who eats meat & they won't know these are made of soya! Enjoy!

Soya Keema Samosa Recipe Cooking Time: 1 1/2 Hours (Approx)

Makes 16 -18 Samosa


  • 1 Cup Dry Soya Mince

  • 1/2 Cup Boiling Water

  • 1/8 tsp Marmite (optional)

  • 1 1/4 Medium Onion, finely chopped (230g)

  • 1 tsp Oil

  • 1 Cinnamon Stick

  • 3 Cloves

  • 1-3 Green Chilli, finely chopped

  • 1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds

  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon Powder

  • Tiny Pinch Clove Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1/4 Cup (40g) Frozen Petit Peas

  • Juice of 1/4 lime

  • 2 TBSP Chopped Coriander

  • 1/4 Cup Plain Flour mixed with 3-4 TBPSN Water for sticking the Pastry

  • 1 x 30 Sheets Spring Roll Pastry

  • Oil for Deep Frying


Mix the Marmite in a bowl with the boiling water, then soak the dry soya mince in this water and leave it to absorb for about 10 minutes.

Chop the green chilis finely and keep aside.

In a large frying pan, heat 1 tspn. oil on a medium-high heat.

Add the cinnamon stick and 3 cloves and let them sizzle a bit.

Then add the ground green chilies then 2/3 of the finely chopped onions, cumin seeds, soaked soya mince and salt. Keep stirring and cooking for a few minutes until the onions soften a bit. If the soya mince looks dry, you can add a teaspoon of water, but don't make it too moist as the samosa will come out soft.

Add the Frozen Petit peas and stir. Cook this for a minute or two, to allow the peas to defrost.

After cooking the mince & peas for 1-2 minutes, add the ground cinnamon and clove powders and stir to mix this in thoroughly. Then turn off the heat and let the mixture cool.

In the meantime, defrost the samosa or spring roll pastry by leaving it un-opened on your countertop.

Then remove the cinnamon stick and 3 whole cloves from the cooked mince. It isn’t pleasant to bite into the whole spices, that’s why we remove them.

Add the remaining raw onions, coriander and lime/lemon juice.

For the samosa pastry. separate double sheets out making sure you pull 2 sheets together. This makes it easier when you are filling the pastry. Having double pastry makes for crispy samosas.

Fold the samosas as shown in the video. Be sure to NOT fill the samosa pastry with too much filling as this will create moisture. With a little less filling, they’ll come out crispy.

For freezing, you can freeze the unfried samosa or partially fry them, then cool and freeze. This way you can heat them up in your air fryer. To fry after freezing, microwave the samosas for 30 seconds on high to slightly defrost.

Enjoy the Samosa with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime and my Green Coriander Chutney recipe!

Note: This filling can be used in puff pastry also.
