When I was in my school, on Monday my mom use to give me 5 rupees and I used to spend that money in my school canteen to buy Samosa from that money. I still remember the taste of that samosa as it was a very delicious samosa. Probably one of the best samosa I ever had in my lifetime.

One day, I went to my school and of course in the canteen also and I saw an uncle who was making that samosa’s there and I feel excited after I saw that samosa. I went to uncle and ask him the Samosa Recipe but that uncle gave that samosa another name. He calls that samosa as Punjabi Samosa and he gave me the detailed explanation of Punjabi Samosa Recipe and I will share a recipe of Punjabi Patota Samosa with you, my lovely people.

This CRUNCHY SAMOSA has a crunchy outer covering and a soft spicy potato filling in the interiors. So it’s like to open up a prism to the wonders inside. Now you don’t need to care about the unhealthy just satisfy your taste buds.
