Samosa is a famous snack of India. Irrespective of any zone or region people of India love samosa. Have you ever tried making samosa at home? In childhood, I have seen my mother preparing samosas at home and we used to eat 3 to 4 samosas each. They used to be very tasty as well as light as they were homemade. You cannot eat shopmade samosas more than two as they are quite heavy. Normally, samosas are stuffed with potato however you can try varieties of stuffing started from minced meat, paneer or any other stuffing of your choice.  My mother used to prepare samosas during Winter and she used to make a stuffing of aloo gobi matar (potato cauliflower peas). I have also prepared the same stuffing and it is a no onion no garlic recipe of samosa. This time I managed to click some step-wise pictures. Try this samosa recipe and let me know how is my mother's recipe of samosa.
