Unlike the common samosas that are stuffed with soft, potato-based mixtures, the Cheese and Spring Onion Samosa has a totally different filling, which gives it an exciting texture and unique taste too. The stuffing of cheese and spring onions seasoned with red chilli flakes, gives you a fabulous mouth-feel combining the gooeyness of cheese, the crunch of onions and the inherent heat of chillies. Make sure you fry the Cheese and Spring Onion Samosa on a medium flame, otherwise the plain flour covering will get cooked too soon but the stuffing will remain raw. Since this samosa has an Oriental touch, you can serve it with Chilli Garlic Sauce. Explore more samosa options like the regular Samosa and Mini Onion Samosa.
