You should provide crispy aloo samosain both in Urdu and English for all kinds of readers. People who live in Pakistan might have difficulty in reading and understanding English. Whereas people living outside Pakistan might get difficulty in reading Urdu, so provide all appetizer and snack recipes in both languages.

I love potato samosa veeeeerrrry much.. I am ready to prepare it myself and if I understood this recipe well completely, i will be making it tonight without the help of anyone else. I like such snacks but sometimes do have to care about eating too much fried things.

looks very scrumptious but i haven't tasted crispy samosa in aloo . What i have eaten is soft aloo samose and they are tasteful too. Now i will try this recipe and see how does crispy one taste to me. If it were good, i will make it again.
