Punjabi style Samose

Samose, Samosa, Singhara are many names to a famous Indian street food. It’s not only famous in all the Indian states, it’s famous abroad too. Every state in India has its own style of cooking. Some like the filling in the All Purpose Flour or Wheat Flour as potatoes or some like cauliflowers with peas or some like with minced meat. There are many variations. My favourite snack is Singhara as a Kolkata’s would say. I love both vegetarian and non vegetarian versions. Today I thought of making in Punjabi style
