Samosa

One of the most popular snack in India. It is available in most snacks shops / sweet shops. I am not sure of the original recipe. I think its all about the kind of spices/masala added with the filling. I have already posted samosa recipe. This is the other method. Everytime i used to have this type of samosa in a restaurant or chaat corner near my place I have wanted to make it at home It is quite simple and not too much time and stress etc., I tried to take samosa making photos but its very hard everytime wash hands and to take every step of pictures. Although i managed to take few steps.
