Samosa is one of the most popular snacks, and people across the world love them. It is made using Potato and all-purpose flour as main ingredients and deep-fried in oil. Nowadays, people are getting more and more health-conscious and trying to avoid fried food, especially deep-fried. But for some people, it is just next to impossible to give up their favorite snack. But there is a simple way to eat your favorite snack, samosa, and still stay away from deep frying. Are you wondering how it is even possible? Then Air Fryers are the answer for it.
Air fryers work in a very simple way. Hot air is circulated on the food inside the air fryer. It will give you the same crispy food as your deep fry. But the only difference is you will use just a few drops of oil instead of a few cups of oil for frying. The recipe for making samosa will remain the same. If you are using an air fryer for the first time to make the samosa, let us look at how to make samosa in the air fryer.
