Notes

  1. Prepare the dough first then prepare the stuffing/filling as it gets really soggy as it can spoil the shaping/ wrapping of samosa.
  2. Make sure to fry the samosa in right oil temperature like heating the oil well and frying it in low temperature helps in achieving right color and cooked stuffing as well or else only color will be achieved with uncooked stuffing.
