It took me quite some time to think of a good name for this dish. I used samosa’s outer covering to make these small tokris and used potato-mattar subji (vegetable) as a filling. Though this dish is using same ingredients as a samosa, it is healthier because I have baked those small containers (tokris) instead of deep frying them. These baked tokris turn out to be quite tasty and you might even find them better than the deep fried versions.
