I love a good samosa – with a crisp crust and comforting filling of potatoes and peas cooked in spices, don’t you? Whether it’s Rakhi, Holi or Diwali, name a festival and we always have samosas ready to be served at home. But as much as I love them, I’ll admit that making them from scratch, mainly the dough, can be quite laborious. Especially when you have people at home for Diwali and you’d rather spend time with them than in the kitchen. So this is when I count on my trusty little ‘cheat ingredient’- filo pastry! it’s what I’m going to use here instead of the traditional samosa ‘patti’.
