A yummy cheesy samosa that appeals to both desi and exotic food lovers. Although it tastes super special, this samosa is also quite easy to prepare and requires minimal ingredients.
What makes it special is the mouth-feel given by molten cheese. However, you should make sure you seal the samosas perfectly, otherwise they will open up while frying and the cheese will ooze out. Also, take care to squeeze all the excess water out of the blanched spinach—otherwise the filling will be very watery.
The Mini Spinach and Cheese Samosas are simply wow and will be finished within minutes of serving!

- Cut the circle horizontally into 2 equal portions using a sharp knife.
- Take a portion and join the edges to make a cone and seal it with little water.
- Stuff the cone with 1 tsp of the prepared spinach and cheese filling and apply little water on the edges to seal it.
- Repeat with the remaining dough and filling to make 25 more mini samosas.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry a few samosas on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Serve immediately.
