About Instant Samosa Recipe

Samosa With Tortillas | Instant Samosa | How to make Tortilla samosa (with no dough) Samosa are fried or baked pastry with savory filling , generally stuffed with peas, potatoes, or even lentils. India is know for its various fried snacks and this is one snack we love to enjoy at home.I have made samosa quite sometime but when we carve for samosa badly it needs prior thinking to make the samosa of tea time snack isn't it. When ever we had leftover rotis we used to fry them and relish them with some chaat masala sprinkled on it so I thought why not try to stuff some filling into it and fry them , I had a packet of tortilla lying round so used them as the crust for making this instant samosa. Believe me it tastes really like a samosa with a very crispy crust and guess what you don't have to think prior it is that quick to make , you only have to concentrate on the filling.

  6. Now for making the glue to stick the samosa in a small bowl take all purpose flour and add 1 - 2 tbsp of water.
  7. Mix them well till they form a lump free paste. Note the consistency should be thick like a paste, it will not stick if the mixture is runny.

  9. Fill the potato mixture pressing gently.
