Onion Samosa is very famous street food in my hometown Coimbatore. They make this samosa using very fewer ingredients, but it gives an excellent taste. The main ingredient in this recipe is sliced onions. Onions are tossed with basic Indian spices and stuffed in the samosa sheets. Usually, samosa sheets are prepared using All-purpose flour, but I have replaced all-purpose flour with wheat flour to make it healthy version. I did not find any difference in taste and we can happily serve this for our children. It takes very less time, but kids will gobble this in no time. It will be super crispy outside with soft tasty onions inside. We will fry the samosas twice to get a nice colour and crispiness. Frying samosas on very low flame are important tip in this recipe.
If you are preparing Onion Samosa for your house party, then fry them once and keep the samosas ready. Then fry them again when you are ready to serve.
