We have a local Indian store who makes and sells Chili Bites and Samoosas on Fridays and Saturdays.

If you are late, you will be out of luck! They have been around since long before I was even born, it is a store who gets passed down the generations.

I have tried the ready-mix types before, and I was very disappointed ! It really had no flavor and if you need to add ingredients, you might as well make your own.

Which is what I did, and I have to say, this is very close to the ones the Indian store sells.

Besides a little chopping, they are very quick to make. Throw all the ingredients together, mix well and deep fry !

Two things to keep in mind:

1.) Use as much or as little Chilies as you prefer. The ratio below is as per our liking, which is not too hot.
2.) A teaspoonful of batter is really enough for a two bite-sized snack. However, you can make them bigger if you so wish.
