What Is Potli Samosa?
       Potli Samosa is a deep-fried snack/appetizer that pairs best with tangy, spicy, and sweet chutney and piping hot tea. It is generally deep-fried, but I wanted to try making an air Fryer healthy version. And you know how I love my air fryer and air fried food. Here, Potli means Packet or Purse / Money Bags. It is a deep-fried snack stuffed with spicy and tasty potato-green peas stuffing; hence it is known as vegetable potli samosa or veg potli samosa. It is referred to as samosa because the stuffing inside the potli and the regular samosa are the same.
