Baked samosa is Indore’s special, in other parts of India you can get veg puffs or veg samosa but baked samosa tastes really different. You can get this samosa in every canteen, every bakery and yes in an every sanchi point ( shops of famous Saanchi dairy). Baked samosa is really famous amongst the students. Mostly you get the option of plain or stuffed and garnished ( they call it bana ke dena…. ),they stuff baked samosa with fresh chopped onions , tomato ketchup, sev, and chopped coriander. Obviously I never even thought of making any of the Indori specialties in indore. Here I try just everything in my own way, by remembering the particular taste. As puff pastry is readily available here, it gets very easy to make baked stuff anytime you want, but telling you the truth it tastes very different, pastry sheets are just too fluffy, still better than nothing 🙂 ..
