Does rice always have to be in the main course? No, it is such a versatile ingredient it can be used to make anything from crunchy and savoury starters to sweet and luscious dessert.

Here is one such delectable starter, Spicy Rice Samosa, made of a plain flour dough packed with an Oriental flavoured rice filling. You will enjoy the crispy outer covering as much as you enjoy the soft and spicy filling.

An excellent way to use the left over rice. The samosa with schezuan sauce is tasting very nice. I tried this recipe and everyone just love it at my place. I never thought that left over rice could be used to make such a delictable snack.
