Ramadan is right around the corner, and I can't live without my samosas. This easy recipe requires no kneading or hard work. Just some simple ingredients and my sneaky shortcut. Not only are these samosas low carb, but they're also low calorie, and that's a real win for me.

If you don't know what dahi puri is, it's similar to pan puri, or gol gappay. They are literally tiny puri's (a semolina and flour dough that is rolled out and fried to crispy and chewy perfection).

They make the perfect appetizer at any table, and my favorite time to make them is during Ramadan. They're easy and fun to eat, and even easier to make.
