Samosa Sandwich

One of my favorite memories from childhood was going out with my friends to have samosas (A fried or baked pastry with savory filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas and lentils). Samosas are among the most popular of Indian snacks and you can find a wide range of fillings popular in different regions of India. My favorite is the classic potato filling because the relative blandness of the potato can be used to highlight the subtle interplay between the flavors of various spices. This is a fusion recipe inspired by the classic Indian samosa. Samosa sandwich is completely vegan with super healthy veggies and full of spicy goodness.
