Samosa Cups have all the flavor of a traditional samosa without all of the fat & calories!! Fried Samosas….NO MORE!! This healthier version of a samosa does not require deep frying. Making samosas have never been easier. Whip up a batch today to enjoy a savory and healthy snack while you are drinking your tea or coffee. Serve with Tamarind Chutney, Cilantro/Mint Chutney or even Ketchup. You could throw some chopped onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, chaat masala, yogurt, and chutney on top to make it a Samosa Chaat. Yummmm……..
