For me, Christmas is not only about baked goodies ; cakes and cookies.....it is also about beef cutlets, samosas, beef ularthiyathu, pineapple wine, squashes, diamond cuts....cousins, family bonding....


I made these samosas with whole wheat flour....and it can be made easily if you have the filling ready....I used beef; you can also use chicken or mutton.

You will love these samosas with all the spices.....so very Kerala Style....crunchy and crispy and juicy and spicy inside...YUM!
