Samosa

19:30

How to make samosa , the famous Indian street food.Today I am going to share recipe of punjabi samosa ,the deep fried triangular snack that is popular worldwide.



Samosa is a famous street food of India loved by all ages. It is a fried savory with potato filling. Eaten with mint chutney or tamarind chutney, gives an exotic experience with richness of spices. Nowadays it is served with different stuffings like cottage cheese, noodles, lentils, cashew nut and fillings of meat. The potato version is generally prepared by mixing mashed potato with spices, raisins , and peas. Although it can be prepared at home but I love the one that is served on streets.

For alphabet "S" this is my entry under street food for BM#32 . So let's start the recipe .yum

Ingredients:

1 cup All purpose Flour
2 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon carom seeds
