Paneer Samosa

I have been making Samosa's for a long time... My father was working in a semi-government office... While growing up, we were staying in a township, and sweets shop was far away from our house... Getting Samosa's every other day was not possible... So, my mom started making it... And by overtime, she became perfectionist...


I learnt making Samosa, when I was very young.. Now, I make variations in it...

My kiddo's summer vacations has started... I told her to eat all her veggies, and from last 1 week without complaining, she started in doing so... And then, when she asked me to make Paneer Samosa as her breakfast, I couldn't say no to her... But, I just had 15-20 minutes in hand... So, presenting you today Jhatpat Paneer Samosa....
