Note

  • Samosas are a popular Indian snack that can be eaten at any time of the year, but they are particularly enjoyed during the monsoon season.
  • You can add other vegetables like carrots, cauliflower, or beans to the potato mixture for extra flavor and nutrition.
  • The dough should be stiff so that it holds its shape when fried.
  • The filling should not be too dry or too wet. Adjust the seasoning and moisture levels as per your taste.
  • You can also bake the samosas instead of frying them for a healthier option.
  • Samosas are best enjoyed fresh and hot. If you have leftovers, reheat them in an oven or air fryer for a few minutes before serving.
