Bun Samosa | Buns Stuffed with Aloo Matar Samosa and Chat Chutneys

Pin It

Finally after much procrastination, I was able to make the bun samosa at home. Of course I used store bought buns. I almost wanted to make the buns at home, however I just managed to make the samosas at home. Yesterday when I was supposed to make this, I was busy with Konda's sports day celebration. Somehow the entire day was spent as she always complains that I never stay to watch her perform at the culturals.  

After a hectic day, it was not possible to find time to make this. So I had to make them today and I ended up making it during lunch time of all the time, as I was planning to make something else. Everybody were so confused with the number of dishes that were coming out. Well I said I get one day and naturally with so many events that meet, I had to make do with whatever time I had.


For the final day of the Combo Dishes, I ended up selected Bun Samosas, suggested by Vaishali. That naturally meant she should have it on her space right. I ended followed her recipe and loved the entire combination.

She says this was introduced by her son and she says this is a popular snack with the college students, who find it easy to pack this and eat. This makes it a great food for picnic. So why waiting, just pack and enjoy a wonderful lip smacking bun samosas.

Vaishali made this for BM # 6 and for my Sandwich Mela. I was so eager to make this when she had sent this for the Mela. I am so glad I finally made this.
