Today’s recipe is ‘Crispy Onion Samosa’. Onion samosa is also known as Irani samosa. Samosa is my favourite snack as compared to kachori, that’s why I love to try various varieties of samosa. This one is a very popular snack in Hyderabad. Enjoy it with ketchup or chutney of your choice during tea-time.
Main ingredients of this samosa are onion, poha (flattened rice), coriander leaves, green chillies and samosa pattis. To absorb the moisture of onions, poha is added to the filling. I have used ready made samosa pattis for my recipe. You can also try – Moong Dal Samosa (Rajasthani special samosa recipe).
