Samosa is a stuffed pastry and is extremely popular as a snack in India and also mostly all over Asia and the Middle East.
The stuffing can be savoury with Potatoes/veggies/Minced Chicken/Beef, but it could also be sweet, ever heard of Chocolate Samosas!! Sounds heavenly isnt it ;-)
Today I made savoury potato-veggie stuffed, fried samosas for our good friends who were leaving the city and so it was kinda like a farewell snack :-)
Hope you love them!
