Samosa With Tortillas | Instant Samosa | How to make Tortilla samosa (with no dough)

Tortilla samosa recipe

Samosa are fried or baked pastry with savory filling , generally stuffed with peas, potatoes, or even lentils. India is know for its various fried snacks and this is one snack we love to enjoy at home.I have made samosa quite sometime but when we carve for samosa badly it needs prior thinking to make the samosa of tea time snack isn't it. When ever we had leftover rotis we used to fry them and relish them with some chaat masala sprinkled on it so I thought why not try to stuff some filling into it and fry them , I had a packet of tortilla lying round so used them as the crust for making this instant samosa. Believe me it tastes really like a samosa with a very crispy crust and guess what you don't have to think prior it is that quick to make , you only have to concentrate on the filling. I love the traditional way of samosa a lot but this is a quick fix if you have unacknowledged guest at home or you have a carving for some fried snack . We enjoyed this samosa thoroughly with green chutney hope you will too.
