The samosa contains a wheat flour or maida flour shell stuffed with some filling, generally a mixture of mashed boiled potato, onions, green peas, spices and green chilli. The entire pastry is then deep-fried to a golden brown color in vegetable oil. It is served hot and is often eaten with fresh Indian chutney, such as mint, coriander or tamarind. Samosas are often served in chaat, along with the traditional accompaniments of yogurt, chutney, chopped onions, coriander, and chaat masala. In Delhi , Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Uttarakhand and other Northern states of India, a bigger version of the samosa with a spicy filling of masala potatoes, peas, crushed green chillies and even dried fruits, as well as other variations is quite popular.
