Aloo Samosa

Aloo Samosa

I had been wanting to make samosas but was never interested!! Until I felt like chalo lets try, Samosa is all mine lolzz


I decided not the make a cone but yes gave a triangular shape just make a round roti cut from half and fold it with filling in center, applying some maida paste to seal the sides to avoid breakout try is simply works the best :)


This is how it all got sealed up ready to be fried!!


Slow deep frying gave a wonderful golden result and crispy as well. Do not hurry patience gives its best result!!
