home made samosa
Homemade chicken samosa – Ramadan special samosa is one of the favorite dish made in Muslim homes for Iftar.
This crisy and cruncy samosa’s can be prepared even with any veggie stuffing like potatoes ,carrots and peas.
Since its a month of ramadan , I prefer using minced chicken(you can even use minced meat instead).It also makes
the best party dishes as its universally loved by everyone 🙂 The un-fried prepared samosas can be refrigerated for a couple of days, this makes it quite easier during Ramadan. An hour before breaking the fast it can be deep fried and can be served warm.And remember one thing at start your samosa might get distorted , but “Practice makes perfect samosa” so never give up 🙂 am sharing the recipe for making chicken samosas with you all, a perfect treat for everyone during Ramadan and on any day.
Have a blessed Ramadan everyone!

prepared chicken stuffing into it.
3.Towards the end spread little wheat paste and end sticking the samosa.

Instead of adding all the spices, you could even cook the chicken using store bought meat masala.
