Samosa fillings can be done in lot of variations like keema samosa,daal samosas,dry fruits samosa or the most wanted and available aloo samosa but i have tried a different filling in the samosa by adding onions and one more secret ingredient that you can find in the recipe.The filling of spicy onions and the aroma and taste of masalas is really tangy and yummy. You can make these samosa for kids birthday parties or evening snack parties also. I have added wheat flour to make it little healthy and all purpose flour also.Wheat flour makes the samosas more crispy and tastes good. I just love to make these samosas for my family in the evening and they enjoy a lot by having this with their tea or coffee .
