Perfect Aaloo and Beef Samosas Naz's Style

Everyone has their own favorite samosa recipes, But I think mines are so juicy, crispy and spicy... I love to make them on cold wintery days especially when its so boreing wet and rainy.. Im sure by now you all know that im a tea lover, but love to have something sweet or spicy with my tea... cookies, cakes, pakoras, samosas.. Potatato chips you name it..............................(im weird lol)

So these are the perfect samosas made just in no time,, and definatly a crowd pleaser.. you can save the mixture in your refrigerator, up to a week, or even freeze it for next time when your in a hurry for upto several months..The reason why my samosas are so juicy is because I cook the beef, in my spices and once its done, I add in raw tomatoes, cilantro, and spring onions I don't add them in at the time of cooking.. This makes the samosas so juicy and gives it that exotic yummy taste inside out..
Try it for yourself today...
