Well, I admit, my mom makes the best Samosas. Since my childhood, I have seen her making the best Potato Samosas, with a flaky, crispy dough and delicious spicy potatoes. It was a treat to watch her making the most elegant Samosa shells. I learnt the tricks of Samosa-making from her and believe me, they’re foolproof.
I am really picky about how my Samosa should look and taste. Its outer covering/skin should be smooth and crunchy.
This evening, I was thinking of making a few Samosas for snacks so I casually asked my daughter about it. She seemed not very interested in it and was pitching for noodles. I thought, “Why not make a fusion Samosa which makes everyone happy?” With that thought, I decided to make Schezwan Noodle Samosa.
It’s a Schezwan Noodles stuffed Samosa and if you have not tried it, I will suggest to go ahead and make it. You will definitely wonder why you have not tried it earlier. It’s that delicious, friends.
I am sharing my foolproof recipe with you all and I am sure that you will be able to make a Samosa better then a halwai with this recipe.
