Chicken Potato Samosa Recipe | Everyday Masala

Hi guys for today's post I will be sharing this aromatic, full of spices Chicken Potato Samosa Recipe. It's a traditional Pakistani/Indian snack made of fried or baked pastry with a savory filling.
The variety of samosas filling goes a long way. They can be stuffed with all kinds of veggies such as spiced potato, green peas, onions, shredded chicken or even minced beef. They're usually served with mint chutney, plain yogurt and sweet chili sauce.

For these past weeks I've been eating samosa I think every other day as I've been working on this recipe for a while now. I'm not going to complain as they were really delicious and I enjoyed making them with my sister. The crust was crispy and perfectly golden brown and the stuffing had just the right amount of spices. Plus we accompanied our samosas with sweet chili sauce which brought this samosa taste to another level!

I hope you give this recipe a try and have a wonderful day!
