      Thanks for the alternate recipe, Mitara. I'm sure your American fans will appreciate the time you took to adapt your recipe to American ingredients and means of cooking.

      Hi Shauna,

      You are absolutely welcome to use puff pastry, rolled out thin, and cut into long strips.

      - If the pastry misbehaves, lol (as pastry is a bit softer), instead of long strips cut into squares and the pastry remains bit thicker to avoid tearing.

      - Add your filling to one corner of the pastry, fold over and press the sides with your fingers or a fork.

      With puff pastry, instead of frying (as it will absorb to the oil) rather bake it,

      - place each pastry, after applying non stick spray onto the oven tray,

      - baste some melted butter onto the top parts of the samoosa pastry

      - bake into a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minute until gold brown at 180 degrees.

      Wala! Ready to serve, tasting just as divine

      Thank you for visiting, you are welcome anytime and appreciate your comment.

      Mitara, this looks delicious. I don't know what samoosa pastry is or if it's available in the U.S. Could I substitute puff pastry?

      Good recipe. In India we fill potato fillings also which is very common.
