Vegetable Samosas with Homemade Ranch

If your kids are anything like mine, they’re condiment crazy. Every few weeks, as I make my shopping list I have to re-check the door of the fridge to see what’s missing this week. MarocBaba, who for the longest time wouldn’t touch salad dressing or dipping sauce has become a ranch-a-holic. It goes on everything. Well it did until I showed him how much fat, sugar and calories were in regular ranch. Recently I was working on some recipe ideas for a fall party and decided to make my own ranch dressing to go with some of the dishes.

Saffron Roads’ new hors d’ouevres are a really great addition to any fall spread. I decided to pair the crispy samosas with vegetables and crispy samosas with saag paneer to my homemade ranch. There are several other dishes that make up my fall appetizer party spread but these two are a must have. They couldn’t be easier to make, simply heat them up in your oven! They truly taste homemade, your guests will think you spent hours making them! Presented with this homemade ranch dressing is the perfect combination.

Here’s my super simple ranch dressing recipe


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (can use fat free)
  • 1/2 c mayo
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp crushed garlic
  • dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • palmful of chopped parsley
  • 1/2 c buttermilk


In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients except buttermilk with a wire wisk until smooth. Slowly stream the buttermilk whisking as you pour. Do not add all of the buttermilk if you prefer a thicker dressing. To store place in an airtight container and refrigerate until needed.
