Samosa is one of my favorite snack, usually during childhood days, when we go for movie I never miss to have samosa J I had few leftover Minced meat curry from my lunch, opened the refrigerator and got to see samosa patties and few pieces of boiled potatoes. Thought of combining these together for the samosa stuff with a tsp of Eastern Beef Ullarthu Masala for a punch to the samosa.

Samosa was too good, and perfect for a rainy tea time snack. It’s a must to try out for this Ramadan. Let me share the recipe…

Minced Meat Curry

This minced meat curry is something simple, easy and can be made in minutes. This goes out well with Poori, Idly, Dosa and Chapathi. My mother and grandmother use to prepare this very often for poori or for dosa. I like this right from my childhood. I prepare this usually when my kids demand poori for lunch.
