Samosa, the famous street side snack, usually have a thick outer covering to retain the shape and hold the stuffing, however that makes it difficult to bake properly. Hence i have rolled the outer covering thin. To instill a little crispiness i have added ½ tbsp of ghee to the dough. Baking takes a little longer but i believe it is worth every effort.

Tried this out and somewhat not so much happy with it.It did not appear as shown in the picture and moreover who are so much diet conscious it is ok for them, but for the rest we will have to compromise with the taste.It is not giving that taste which we get from the samosas which are deep fried!
