How to make Vegetable Potli samosas

Recipe of whole wheat veggie Potli samosas

Potlis with veggies are a beautiful variation to a famous Indian street food 'Samosas'. They are delicious and beautiful small baskets prepared with whole wheat and stuffed with variety of cooked crispy vegetables served with chutneys. These are cute basket/small purse shaped unique samosas filled with crunchy veggies. These cute potlis are popular among kids too. This is the best way to make them eat all the veggies with this filling snack. You can add tomato ketchup in the veggies, while making it for kids. You can add your choice of veggies in it. If your kid is fond of cottage cheese or shredded cheese, you can add that too with veggies. Potlis are perfect party starter or an evening snack.

It is a quick dish which can be prepared in jiffy. It is a stand alone recipe which can be served without any accompaniment. If you like it spicy, you can add red or green chilly in that. It is vegetarian and eggless. Make sure to serve it hot otherwise it will become soggy and you will not enjoy it.
