Are you thinking of an excuse right now?… Weather? Friends visiting in? Festival? Pooja.. (Neha/Rita ;))? Tea time after Siesta? 😛 At Nalaa’s (or any other tea stall near your house)? Or just another boring Tuesday? or JUST craving junk? I just gave you some excuses.. now YOU think of some!
I was introduced to Samosa at Railway Station.. or was it at Nalaa’s? I can’t remember… But ever since it was love at first bite!
For me.. and with me.. there’s no excuse needed with Samosa. Just say the word and it’s ready!
PS: Angry moms look away!
That said, I’ve been an ardent devotee of Aaloo Samosa forever. But thanks to new times, Samosa lovers, and creative chefs, there have been a gazillion new types of this deliciously unhealthy monster! I’m going to do the honor of spoiling you with some of my tested gyan. 😀
Note: You’ll also need to have a few spices at hand, such as turmeric, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, and garam masala (that’s just covering the basics!). Can you do without one or two of those? Sure, but if your aim to is to get that authentic Indian flavor you’re better off taking a trip to the nearest spice shop. Go you got this!
PS: Serve hot with green Chutney + Tamarind sauce or even tomato Ketchup will do!
The How-To of making it RIGHT
Make the filling the day before you intend to serve the samosas so making them will be a breeze. Ideally, you’d boil the potatoes ahead of time
