Onion Samosa Recipe

Samosa is one of the most popular snacks in India. It is prepared either by frying or by baking. It usually holds a stuffing that is based on potato, onion, minced meat, peas, etc. How can we not imagine the golden fried samosas with their intriguing aroma lined up in a tray in the tea shop? Though there are different types of samosas available in India, according to me, the most delectable version is Onion samosa. This onion samosa is quite famous in South India. These are known for their crispiness. The traditional onion samosa holds a triangle shape. This can be served even without a chutney or any fancy sauces.
