Once the oil is hot enough, place the samosas in the pan. Fry them until they are light brown on the bottom.
When done, place them on a kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil.

You can also cook samosas in the oven or air fryer.
Samosas come in many different shapes. Some are cylindrical, while others are triangular. The shape of a samosa can vary from region to region.
