We all love indulging in hot and spicy samosas. Don’t we? It is one snack item that has a huge fan following across the nation – so much so that every region in India has its unique samosa recipe. Some add dal stuffing, while others make a sweet version of it with khoya and dry fruits. But what remains the most popular among all is the classic aloo samosa. Spicy aloo filling with crispy, flaky outer layer, samosa just spells indulgence. You may either have it as is with chutney or pair it with spicy chhole and dahi. In the Eastern part of India (especially Bengal), samosa makes a great pair with jhalmuri.
