Satpura samosa/puffed samosa

We are all aware of Punjabi samosas which are tringle in shape. Some conical and some triangle (using samosa patti) I came across this samosa yesterday when I was watching a food channel. The anchor was talking about the amritsar food and temple etc. .. He also showed a small shop which apparently had no name but is very famous for satpura samosas and people stand in a queue to eat these samosas. The owner of the shop briefly showed the technique of how he makes these. But he didn’t give the complete recipe or showed how he makes it.He briefly showed his kitchen where his workers were doing this.I was so so tempted to try my hands on them and tried this using the readymade samosa patti sheets which we get in super market. It came out very well. Super crunchy like a pastrypuff on the outerside and with the filling inside. I really loved it an thought i should share it with u all.

I hope you will try and let me know the output 🙂
