Samosa is a hot favourite snack item, which is very popular in North India. We have often tried triangle-shaped samosas. However, this time, let's try a different kind of a samosa recipe that looks different and also when you keep it in front of the guests, they'd definitely find it to be very exotic and fancy.
The filling is always done with a potatoes and peas mixture, but you can also swap it with corn and cheese or may be with mixed veggies and paneer. So, try this samosa and surprise everyone.
