FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I substitute the mozzarella cheese with another type of cheese?

Absolutely! While mozzarella cheese lends a gooey texture, experiment with cheeses like cheddar, Monterey Jack, or any cheese you prefer for a unique flavour profile.


How can I prevent the samosas from becoming too oily?

Ensure the oil is at the correct temperature before frying to maintain crispiness and prevent excess oil. Avoid overcrowding the frying pan, as it can lead to uneven cooking. After frying, place the samosas on paper towels to drain any excess oil.

Are these samosas suitable for vegetarians?

Yes, these samosas are vegetarian-friendly, containing mushrooms and cheese as the primary ingredients. Perfect for vegetarians and cheese enthusiasts alike!

Can I add other ingredients to the filling?

Certainly! If you wish to personalize the filling, consider incorporating sautéed onions, bell peppers, or a dash of spice with chilli flakes. Ensure that any additional ingredients are thoroughly cooked and well-drained before mixing them into the filling. Get creative and tailor the recipe to your taste preferences!
