We are starting the final week of the BM # 28 and I will be doing my most favorite snack of all time. Samosas with different fillings. When I was thinking of this theme, I was planning to make with different filling with both savory and sweet. Finally decided that I might be the only one eating those sweet stuffing, so you will be seeing only the savory ones.
I waited till the end to make these, and managed with the most famous one, being the Punjabi Samosa. I have already posted four different ones, some over lapping with this recipe. However the taste and the crispiness of this made sure to be different from the rest.
