I still remember my childhood days where my brother used to bug my mom to buy him samosas on our way to our home town in trains...My mom used to convince him saying that they 'll be so unhealthy as they use cheap oils to fry them ..She used to prepare them at home by using some moulds bought in city exhibition:) Now after so many years I tried them on my own :)Now goes the recipe for samosa stuffed with hot potato peas masala..
