Samosas the Indian stuffed savoury !!…deep fried to a golden.!!..crunchy.!!… lovely stuffing of spiced potatoes and a bit of farm fresh peas…wow!!..served hot with sweet and tangy tamarind chutney or fresh mint chutney…or would you prefer them with a nice cup of chai?  I looked  at these golden beauties ..something stopped me.Yes , you guessed right…..Deep Fried!! Thanks to Nupur Mehra of UK Rasoi who has come up with this new event From Fried……to Favourites”.
Trust me I had read many times about the baked version of these samosa but felt……nah…not for me..they will never taste as good!!..but I was wrong!!..the baked version came out smashing hit.I tweaked the  bun samosa recipe which I had posted earlier, where the samosas were made with all purpose flour  and deep fried.The stuffing remains the same.

Samosa crust
1cup……… maida
1cup……… whole wheat flour
½tsp ………warm oil
½ tsp…….. ajwain
Salt to taste
Sift the flour.add salt and ajwain.
Add oil.
Knead into a semi soft dough.
Leave it for about 20 mins.
(this would make 6 to 8 samosas)

Add all the spices and roast them for a few minutes .
