Samosa is Pakistani pastry that made from the scratch not from the store-bought dough. this crispy crunch pastry is filled with smashed potatoes along with some spices ,off course you can make this from any filling but the potatoes ones are the best.
I remember when I was studying in university model school samosa and coke was my only food. Everyday in lunch time warm samosa was lunch. After finishing school I miss school Samoa’s because it was the perfect blend of spices and the pastry was out of this world.
I really try to cook healthy food ,in this recipe instead of using all ghee I use ghee oil together but I try this pastry with just oil 4 tbsps of oil will also make this pastry almost the same so enjoy samosa and don’t forget to have them with a cup of Pakistani tea.
