Here , I am going to share the moong sprouts samosa.
A samosa is a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling , such as spiced potatoes , onions , peas , lentils , minced meat . the size ary , but typically, they are distinctly triangular. Samosas are often accompanied by chutney. I prefer to have it without chutney or sauce. Samosa can be baked , but I like the fried version , as it will be more crisp and tastier than the baked one.
Usually all purpose flour / maida is used to make the outer covering . Here , wheat flour is used , it tastes good and more healthy.
