Samosas by Batto Bua


Who doesn't know the good old Samosa. There are different ways to make Samosas and with different fillings too. My aunt (Bua in Hindi) gave her recipe on my facebook page and now I am posting it here on the blog. I tried it too and they are delicious. In our joint family we all the cousins grew up together and I still remember when I was a teenager once she taught me how to make Palak-Tamater (Spinach with tomatoes) and I still remember one of her tips while cooking Spinach, she said to use less salt while cooking palak, because, spinach is a bit saltish, you can always taste and add it later, not sure if she remembers.
