It is one of the most popular street food. We can find shops selling samosa in all places. They mostly use potato as stuffing. But we can add any stuffing of our choice and make samosa. I have fond memories of my dad getting these from local shops during childhood and they make the best samosa. My mom used to make it in home once in a while.

My husband is big fan of samosa. So I make different types of samosa each time. I have used only potatoes for this stuffing. I usually use green peas along with potato. This time I didn’t have them in stock. Rub the oil/ghee with flour nicely to get crispy and flaky outer layer. I read that we should fry in low flame to prevent air bubbles while frying samosas. I never mind having them as it doesn’t affect the taste or texture. Samosa dough should be tight and firm to prevent air bubbles too. You can bake the samosas in oven too instead of deep frying for healthy option. You can use leftover samosas to make Samosa Channa Chat.

Use ghee or butter for better results.
