Alternative to deep fried samosa dough?

My family loves samosas but I am tied of hauling out the deep fryer, and my parents are not supposed to eat anything deep fried due to health reasons. We could stop making samosas, but we'd prefer not too. Slightly addicted at this point.

I was wondering what people thought the best alternatives are for baked samosa dough? Preferable something homemade, crisp and thin? Is it possible to just use a regular samosa dough and bake it?

So far we have tried using phyllo dough, and puff pastry. I thought phyllo didn't end up crisp enough, and was easy to tear and leak filling during baking. The puff pastry was delicious, but didn't feel very samosa-like. It was puffy and soft like a curry flavored pasty, it also had a lot of fat added.
