Healthy Crispy Vegan Samosa's

Oh yeah you all will be guessing what is healthy in these  samosa's . Everything is healthy in here . The way i made the dough and the stuffing . Normally when ever i make samosa's i use butter  and a different method to make the dough , this is how my mom does . This time i have adopted the same way of doing it but i have substituted with healthy ingredients .  It is totally different and totally healthy .
Normally we see Potatoes, Onions and Green Peas in Samosa's . First let me tell you what was the stuffing i made . Any guesses ????  ok no suspense ...
  • Bottle Gourd - Slice it thin and squeeze the water out of it. Store it for later purpose .
  • Onions 
  • Garlic
  • Boiled Soya Beans.
  • Salt
  • Chili Powder
  • Coriander Powder
  • Mustard seeds
  • Fennel Seeds
  • Oil
Make the stuffing according to your taste and make sure the Stuffing is dry and roasted.

Instructions :

1.   Combine all the dry ingredients and olive oil and mix.
2.   Lastly add Bottle gourd juice  according to the consistency and knead it .

How to make Samosa's :
