Veg Samosas

A samosa, a stuffed pastry is a common snack in most parts of Asia. The outer shell is made of maida flour and is filled with a potato savory. It's a wonderful party snack and has become quite popular across the globe. I find it under the starters category in every other restaurant here. Like all other potato recipes, it is dangerously delicious. You might take a try on baking the samosas instead of frying, if you wish to make it oil free and do let me know.
Now, for my recipe...
