Vegetable samosas are a classic Indian snack. Smaller versions of the standard-sized samosas can also be served as appetizers. Samosas are essentially fried pastries stuffed with tasty filling. This recipe calls for potatoes, peas, and carrots, but feel free to use your own preferred veggies to get the taste that you like.

Health Benefits 

This dish calls for a lot of different vegetables. Each one has its own set of health benefits, nutrients, and minerals. One of the rarer vegetables used in this recipe are carrots. Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene, a compound that can be difficult to find in a lot of diets. Beta-carotene can help prevent certain cancers by removing cancer causing free radicals; reduce age related macular degeneration; and help improve respiratory and lung health.

Potatoes are a powerhouse of carbohydrate and potassium. Peas, on the other hand, are rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
