This weekend, I thought I’d make samosas at home from scratch. I love samosas and usually eat them whenever I’m out at Indian restaurants. I generally feel quite lazy to prepare them at home! On the occasions that I have prepared them at home, I’d take the easy way out by preparing the filling and then use the store bought samosa sheets to wrap them in. This time I thought why not do everything myself. It was not as time consuming as I thought it would be. In fact, I’d say it almost didn’t take much extra time or effort :)
Here is my samosa recipe. This is the way my atthe (mother-in-law) makes them. If you notice, the filling is very simple and I actually prefer it that way. I don’t like a hundred ingredients crammed into a samosa. I also don’t like samosas with fillings that are an alarming shade of yellow or orange! But then again, something like a samosa filling is very subjective so you can modify the recipe based on your preferences.
