Samosa Pull Apart Pizza.

Hello friends am back again a unique recipe and am sure you all will love it. It so happened that yesterday I wanted to have samosa’s for dinner and my little munchkin denied to have them saying that its junk food. Instead she wanted to have pizza. To this I told pizza equally falls under junk food category. Poor girl all the excitement in her face vanished in a second. She told ok then make something  with cheese may be a pizza samosa.

The name was new to me but i wanted to give it a try. The design for pizza was adopted from Google images and I  really don’t know the who created design but whosoever it is I really appreciate his/her work.

  4. A tbsp of tomato ketchup
  5. 1 tsp chili flakes

Veg Lasagna With Homemade Lasagne Sheets

I like cheese very much. I can have them with anything and everything. I still remember my first bite of pizza I just fell in love with its cheesiness( it was bought by bro as his first salary treat). After that my mommy dearest use to recreate lovely pizzas with available ingredients at home and we use to relish on it. When we use to ask how did you make it she use to say there’s nothing that a mom can’t make.

On my last visit to native me and my mom were watching TLC channel where in  chef was making lasagna. I told it looks good but might be tough because we did’t have pasta roller and all the fancy equipment’s he used,to this my mom said nothing is difficult all you need patience and don’t tell its difficult without giving it a try.

So this is my sincere effort to try lasagna. I haven’t tasted lasagna before so I liked what I made. Hope you all will like it too.
