By the way I have also tried Keema Samosa ( minced meat samosa ) and these are equally good. Meat Samosa are very popular in the Arab world and during the month of Ramadan - which is approaching soon

You can bring in more variations to the same old samosa trying out your choice of filling like noodles filling or meat if you are non-vegetarian. Furthermore, you can also experiment with the side dishes or dips like green chutney, cream cheese sauce, salsa or marinara sauce!
