meenakshi said... Best Blogger Tips

hello mam, i made it today and they were very delicious. i have one question that can i keep the raw stuffed samosa in the fridge or in deep freezer and fry it next day? one more request BAKED SAMOSA recpie please.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@meenakshi Thanks for trying it out, i dont think that will work,because the dough will get hard and break... you can fry it first and then freeze it. When you want it to serve, fry it again and serve.

Veena Theagarajan said... Best Blogger Tips

so tempting and crispy samosa.. It is pouring outside.. don't mind a cup of tea with samosa!

Netra said... Best Blogger Tips

I think you can keep dough and filling both in fridge and make samosa next day and fry. but please do not fry samosas, keep in fridge and then fry again next day, that will be horribly unhealthy . hope this helps ..
