Sweet Somas is a deep fried snack. It can also be prepared with savoury filling.Sweet Somas served as teatime snack,especially for Kids love it. It is easy to make very few ingredients, it can be folded in different shapes, but the folding is a little tricky, if it is not folded properly there are chances for the filling to get spread ed in oil. Folding can be done on three easy ways. The filling are wrapped in a thin sheet of dough. Somas is one of the most popular Indian snack items.

Take a pan heat oil, test the temparature of oil by adding a pinch of dove, once the dropped pinch rises from the oil then that is the right temparture. Now carefully take the somasi and drop it into the oil.

Note
  • Becareful while taking the somasi out from the mould since it is soft be careful there are chance that it can break and stuffing will come out
  • Always roll the dove like a poori the size should be bigger than the mould so that the corners will be closed and stuffing will not come out
