Potato-Peas Samosa

Yesterday, it was a Friday Evening.... And Friday Evening's are always special... I always make something special for Friday Evenings... Most of the time, it's a family favorite... Since, Rakhi is round the corner, so decided to make something which was loved by we siblings, when we were Kids...

When we were small, My dad use to work with a N.T.P.C. So we use to live in a township... So, the option of getting street foods there was very limited. All of us, love street foods. Whenever we are going to nearest town, we make sure that we are getting some street food... But, these trips were not more than once in a month.... These trips depends completely on our grocery stock at home... If the stock is getting finished, we need to go... Well, these are the one of the beautiful memories from my childhood...  I must say, I had a beautiful childhood....

Some months it does happen, that we are completely full of grocery, and we do not need a trip to the nearest town... So, in those days, my mom brings these delicious street foods at home.... So, thinking back those wonderful days of childhood, thought of making Samosa, which mom use to make at home....
