Lukhmi is a crisp and flaky version of samosa that is part of the local cuisine of Hyderabad.
While Hyderabadi style Lukhmi is usually non-vegetarian, here we have made a version with a spicy vegetarian filling comprising potatoes and paneer perked up with spice powders, pastes and herbs.
You can have this delicacy with tea, or serve it with breakfast. You can also try other savoury snacks like the Aloo Methi Tikki and the Banana Bhajiya .
