Mini Onion Samosa Recipe

The effort put into a recipe is definitely not proportional to the flavor of the dish. That is true in most of the cases, since I almost always make dishes which are very easy to make at home, but yet super tasty. This onion samosa recipe falls perfectly in this category. Samosa is traditionally made with a dough made out of all purpose flour. And that is how I made it when I posted the Veg Samosa recipe.

However, now I wanted to make use of a tried and tested shortcut which would make life much more easier. This mini onion samosa uses a store bought spring roll sheet instead of preparing your own dough at home. The end result is an equally delicious onion samosa, with an even crisper exterior and needing only a fraction of the time compared to a regular samosa 🙂
