Mini Samosa (Aloo Mutter stuffing):

                        Everyone would have dreamt of making samosas at home.If we properly follow certain steps,anyone can make these yummy samosas.And also when we eat it somewhere outside, all our hunger would be over with only one (due to the usage of dalda or vanaspathi which is not good for our health).But when we make it at home, kids can have more n at the same time it is healthy too.
                       We can make the stuffing of our own choice .It can be simply veg r can be dry fruits.We can even stuff the cooked noodles which would be much yummy.Or u can try with just fried onions and it would resemble the one served at almost all school canteens.For sure it would take u back to ur school days.To make it simple for the beginners I used aloo n peas stuffing. 

                        I wanted to make the samosas like the one served at A2B. Except for the thickness of the outer part, I love it.So I just wanted to make the outer part thin and crispy too.And when I saw the book of mallika badrinath with samosa prep on the very first page,I was overwhelming with joy.I quickly tried it and got appreciation from everyone n the family. Here is the recipe for u..
