Author Notes

This recipe is my lazy version of traditional Indian Samosa. There is nothing wrong with using shortcuts to satisfy those food cravings without spending hours in the kitchen ;). Instead of making the Samosa wraps from scratch, I like to use Uncooked Tortillas. Tastes phenomenal with Green Cilantro Chutney. Traditional Potatoes and Peas stuffing with the twist of Tortilla.

Potatoes and Peas stuffed samosas are very famous and can be found in every other corner of India throughout the year. While the minced meat Samosas are usually sold occasionally. Minced meat Samosas are available during the Muslim holy month of fasting “Ramadan”. Minced meat and Potatoes & Peas Samosas are a staple in India. However, with the new generation wanting to experiment with new flavors, Indians have diverted into using much different stuffing for Samosas now. I remember having Indo-Chinese Samosa, Lentil Samosa, and Cheese Samosas during my college years. —FeastwithSafiya
