Peas Paneer Samosas

peas paneer samosas

Samosas are one of the few Indian fried treats that I just can’t get enough of. I was wondering what to make for potluck for new years party, I had to pick some appetizer, So  came up with the idea of  peas paneer samosas.

Flaky fried pastries with savory fillings, samosas vary in shape by location and by cook. Indian samosas such as these are traditionally triangular or conical. The most popular filling is a mixture of potatoes and peas, seasoned with fragrant spices. Personally matar paneer samosas are one of my favorite.

When making samosas at home, I would probably bake them in the oven versus frying them.  just spray on olive oil and bake in an oven till golden brown for a low-fat healthy version. These turned out great too.

Note : Samosa can be prepared ahead of time and can be frozen for couple of months. Just fry them before use.
