A very special recipe for Diwali ( or any other time) from ” Zaika” by Romy Gill. Romy has a restaurant in Thornbury near Bristol which has been on my go to list for a while. The story goes that when restaurant critic Grace Dent of the Guardian was asked what her desert island dish would be she said Romy Gill’s Samosa Chaat. I need say no more! If you cannot get Haldiram’s Aloo Bhujia ( try supermarkets or Indian grocery stores) then you can use roasted peanuts. You can also use any vegetable samosas if you dont want to make them yourself.
