Samosa is a traditional Indian/Pakistani snack. It is basically a potato filled snack, although it can be filled with other vegetables or meat. However, if you are going traditional, it is the spicy potato filling. The hero is the pastry here, has to be beautifully crispy.

It is dee-lee-cious

They are made into triangular shapes and deep fried to a gorgeous golden color.
