After trying umpteen number of frozen samosas and fresh samosas from super market and restaurants I nearly lost the interest in eating samosas and least did I think of making it at home, can blame my laziness and hot oil phobias for that !
Since the weather here has been too chilly for kids for outdoor play ,we have a playdate arrangement going on every week and this time when friends came over to our place , I made some chocolate doughnuts and this samosas and they went down really well :) After all, on a chilly day who can say no to samosas with a hot cup of tea even if its a bit distorted ...bliss ! Earlier I only used to make my hubby and lil one wait for food till my photo session finishes but this time I didnt get time for clicking it before friends came, so I made them wait too..lol !
