The culinary experiments of street vendors consistently leave an impression on people. The divine-tasting keema samosa is one such instance.

This samosa variation is very tempting.

3. Cauliflower Samosa

Potato and Cauliflower samosa is popular all over Bengal and is readily available in the sweet shops during winter. When cauliflower is mixed in the filling along with potatoes and spices it becomes more flavourful and the taste increases automatically. These samosas are irresistible—crisp, golden, and loaded with the best filling ever. 

4. Chocolate Samosa

This dessert is extremely rich. Warm and melted chocolate ganache filling encased in a crispy pastry shell. Delicious! Fried chocolate ganache transforms into rich, sweet chocolate lava and is shockingly simple to make. People will adore the pastry's cinnamon sugar, which gives it sweetness and texture. To create the ideal chocolate dessert, try experimenting with different kinds of chocolate for the filling. 

5. Keema Samosa

This classic Indian and Pakistani snack is a savoury filling for samosas. Stuffed with a smoky and spicy meat filling, these are simply too tasty to resist. Any meat can be picked up; however, mutton or lamb is the classic choice. 

6. Jalapeno Three Cheese Samosa

These gooey samosas taste so delicious. It's pretty much the appetiser of dreams—cheesy, stringy goodness. They are loaded with cream cheese, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese, and for a little kick of spiciness, chopped jalapeños are added. Ice-cold beer and these samosas will definitely be a hit at parties.

7. Nuttela S’mores Samosa

The stuffing as butter chicken is pure genius. It's flavorful, creamy, and accurately spiced. To put it briefly, it tastes wildly good! For the next gathering, these lip-smackin samosas will be devoured more quickly than any other dish.

9. Egg Samosa

An egg salad-like filling is used in the egg samosas. The intriguing Indian twist to this rich and creamy dish is the hard-boiled eggs combined with classic Indian flavours. Moreover, crispy phyllo is used to cover these rather than ordinary pastry. Numerous delicate layers are there on the outside, and the inside is aromatic and flavorful. That's the perfect snack to beat the mid-afternoon slump.

10. Sambousak

The look of these Sambousak differs slightly from that of regular samosas. However, that doesn't lessen how delectable they are.

Samosas are the ultimate love! During winter time it is one of the most common evening snacks. There are loads of varieties of samosas to experiment with and make the evening pleasant with a cup of tea.
