    Oh… do samosas normally have amchur powder or do you add it to yours? I’m in India and I love buying samosas here and there when I’m out, but I’ve developed an amchur powder allergy. Of course the nice thing about homemade is I can just leave it out.

      Hye Pamela,
      Glad to have you here. All samosas do not have. I like the tinge it gives and hence use it. Thanks for the visit..:)
