If you read this, you will think that why she didn't write anything about maha's birthday. But please be patient, i am working on it..I thought of sharing her 1st birthday cake recipe and write everything there. I will be posting that recipe today.so make sure you check them..
Before that i wanted to share this samosa recipe. Normally i make samosa all from scratch..You can check out my Punjabi samosa and Tapioca samosa..But few weeks back when i went shopping, i saw this readymade samosa patti in the freezer section, i was so excited to see that because my super market never carries them so far. So i took a packet and came home happily..
At first i wanted to make chicken samosa using them. But i used them to make vegetable samosa for maha's birthday part yesterday..It came out superb and everyone loved them..If you dont have the samosa patti on hand, you can make them from scratch using the recipe from my tapioca samosa..
