Summers is the time all want to go for a vacation...with grown up children I have no issues of school...but yet a holiday is needed probably to get away from this heat.We just got back from a holiday and am having another holiday..a break which is indeed welcome ..staying at my mom’s place.a short break but a wonderful one!!

I nearly gave up partcipating for this month’s Magic Mingle, which is Kalyani’s baby. Initially had no internet, but even when I knew the magic ingredients I could’nt think of doing a post...I  did not have my camera!!  Ah but blogging sure is an addiction..I decided to use my dg cam and there you go...this post is done!..Must thank my sis.in.law who taught me these patti samosas for which I a made the stuffing.Here goes the recipe.....

The crust

Adding water to the flour make a thick paste.

Stuffing

Preparing the samosa strips and filling the samosas
Make balls from the dough,as making for chapatis.
Roll into discs about 4’’ in diameter.
Place one disc, apply little oil and sprinkle some flour.
Place the second disc in the similar way on top of the first.
Place the third disc.
Roll lightly .
Heat a gridle.
 Lightly cook this chapati on both sides(this has to be done just for a few secs)
Remove.
Cut into strips.
Seperate the strips and keep them covered.
Roll and make strips from the rest of the dough in similar way.
Once these strips are ready you have to fill in the stuffing and seal them with the paste 
Deep fry adjusting the flame from medium  to hot.
Alternately brush them and bake.
Serve hot.
Please refer the pics to understand the folds.
