    About this recipe: Samosa or Sam as i lovingly call is been my favorite snack since childhood. I still remember those birthday parties which i looked forward to so as to hog the lovely samosa. And those trips to cities where again my favorite dish eaten was samosa... So finally i decided to learn how to make it and it turned out good first time i made it. So i thought of sharing it with my fellow foodies
