My In-laws do not like Cheese so I made them Potato samosa just need to change the stuffing with boil pea and potatoes. Mashed potatoes, add all the spices (red chili, salt,garam masala, coriander powder, chaat masala) and add green chili, coriander and boil peas.

My kids are so cheese maniac that they want everything made of cheese. This is the best cheese delight for them.

Enjoyed oily samosa. Now get ready to detox it with Te-a-me Detox with cardamom turmeric spice tea . This has the active blend of golden turmeric, rich Indian spices, and fruity orange peel, somehow the mixture adds great flavor to the beverage. The aroma is pleasant and tastes good. I feel refreshed and restore with this healthy tea. Monsoons are when the body’s immunity is at an all-time low.  It acts as a body cleanser and helps remove toxins from the body, aids in digestion, boosts the immune system, an effective home remedy for common ailments like colds and sore throats. Its one of the best combo pack in this monsoon. The perfect blend of turmeric,  Indian spices, and orange in this tea not only satiates the tea lover in me but also gives me a sense that I am a step closer to healthy living.
