Puff Samosa | Puff Pastry Samosa

Snack time! In case you don’t know what samosa means to an Indian then let me tell you. Samosas with a cup of tea is a popular snack of India and loved by all age group. Even calorie conscious people can’t say no to samosa. And for people like me, samosa is love. 😀 Though the filling and taste may vary region to region, the love for samosa will be the same. ❤  For me having samosa on every weekend with my cup of chai is a must. No, I don’t prepare samosas every weekend, sometimes I buy those frozen samosas from the store just to make sure my breakfast/ snack is sorted. 😀

Cooking Puff Pastry Samosa is comparably easy for me than cooking the normal Punjabi samosa. 😀 Well, the reason is very simple because for puff pastry samosa I buy pastry sheets from the store that makes my job half done. 😛 To be frank preparing the pastry sheets are a tough task for me as it requires a lot of patience and lot of kneading the dough which is definitely the only thing I hate in cooking, the kneading part. 😛
