  55. Wow, my all time favourite. If I go anywhere, when I see samosas I would buy it.My kids would not like the onion filling, do you have the cheese filling or potato filling? What is Maida flour? does wheat flour means whole meal flour or flour used to make capati?
    Thank you.

  68. Hy Prathy, to get the triangle to round shape again , I rolled it to thinner size & cut it to round shape by placing a plate on it.
    do giv a try & lemme know..:)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hy Black Jubah, you can alternate the filling of onion with potato masala or any veg masala..def it tastes great.
    And maida flour is All Purpose flour available at all Indian stores. Wheat flour is whole wheat flour or Atta flour.

  70. Hy Kathleen, thanks for your lovely compliment..
    you can add potato masala filling & enjoy the spicy taste of samosa..;)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hy Saranya,
    the main key to get crispy exterior of samosa, is the consistency of the dough, it should be smooth & soft and let it rest for 20 to 30 mins by covering with a damp cloth..
    do giv a try & lemme know..:)

    ReplyDelete
