I have always loved samosas – crispy & flaky filled with mouth watering spicy potatoes and peas , which you enjoy sizzling hot dipped in mint chutney and hot masala tea . Samosa is the most popular Indian snack. No Indian Restaurant`s menu is complete without samosa as a starter.
With new diet fads and health conscious people , the snack was loosing popularity .Some discarding it as deep fried and some want gluten free. Here is a super easy recipe .Its easy and healthy and now we can indulge guilt free . We can choose various fillings per your palate like minced mutton and peas, feta and spinach, soya and peas , cottage cheese, tandoori chicken mince etc
