Egg Samosa

This is my first post under Samosas with different filling for BM#28

Tell me who doe snot like Samosas. These little parcels are world famous now. Go to any parties or restaurants you will find these in their Appetiser menus. These days for convenience people just use the phillo pastry sheet to make quick samosas. Mostly Onion Samosas are made with these & phillo pastry sheet really make the samosas crunchy. I mostly avoid making deep fried items at home for us. I mostly do them when I have guests at home. My hubby loves samosas & that's why I though I will take up this theme Samosas with different filling.

when it comes to breakfast its mainly different varieties of Dosas without oil/ ghee, Oats idlis, Bread/egg, Idlis, Chapathi, Puttu, Appams. I rarely make Puris for breakfast & Its made may be once in 2 months or so. I made these Samosas yesterday for breakfast & also for evening Tea. I made 3 different filling samosas in one day. One of My friends also had come home in the evening so thought it will be nice to serve some of these. This is how I made them
