daisy M's Note:
Use your leftover mashed potatoes for making a sumptuous Indian appetizer- samosas.If the mashed potatoes are refrigerated overnight, their consistency is right for this recipe. This can also be used as a side dish for rotis, naans and sandwich fillings. Try this with common mashed potatoes and not ones that use ingredients like basil or chipotle peppers.
