Onion Samosa

Onion samosas are famous in south India i believe. These tiny little fellows are crispy to bite in and yummy to satisfy your taste buds. My mom used to make this for us a lot. No wonder they were all gone before even served. We used to go to her every 2 mins and ask 'Mummy is the next set ready'. This one takes some time but it is worth waiting too. The funny part is that you can never be done with just a couple of them... the formula is to just keep eating and not count :)

This is what u'll need....

Maida / All purpose flour 1/2 cup
