Ajwain Mini Samosa with Onion | Mini Samosa | Step by Step Recipe for Onion Mini Samosas

Sharing is caring!

I have been breaking my head on what to make for the next post, while I had short listed some, none were things that I could do after getting back from home. Thinking of shortlisting the dishes for mini bites I felt I was doing something different and not really deciding on food. I have been talking to myself since morning and both Athamma, Hubby dear thought I have gone out of mind.

I must say this BM has been the most unplanned one. Though I mostly cook the previous day I will at least plan what to make and get it ready before dinner, so that we can have what I made before dinner. So making all those other dishes were out of question at 8. I had this flash thought that I have always been fond of Ajwain samosa but haven’t blogged about it. So mini they will become and they did.

Everybody thought I had made more and were sad that I had only some limited numbers. The mini samosas are always great as it controls how many one eats. Everybody liked it so much that I am sure I am going to make these again.

  1. Even for me this month has been hectic. I had some dishes in mind but then I want to post something else 🙂 .. confused 🙂

    Yummy samosas.

  2. Nice somasa!

    My today's post was unplanned too. I had listed a few for the bm and my today's recipe was not on the list. Today being a weekend, the day started on a lazy note and then went to a movie in the afternoon. I ended up making a quick snack for dinner, which became my day 3 post, as we wanted to eat light.

  3. Love these bite sized samosas, Valli…..but I disagree with you on having better control while eating these. I think it is so easy to forget numbers and just keep munching on these.
